  • NL10 SH - Large multiway pot with QQ squeeze, flop line?

    Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10, $0.02 ante No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite. Hero (BB): $10 (100 bb) UTG: $10 (100 bb) MP: $18.38 (183.8 bb) CO: $27.10 (271 bb) BTN: $26.16 (261.6 bb) SB: $8.52 (85.2 bb) Preflop: Hero is BB with Q Q UTG raises to $0.30, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.30, SB calls $0.25, Hero raises to $1.50, UTG folds, BTN calls $1.20, SB calls $1.20 Flop: ($4.92) 2 K K (3 players) SB checks, Hero checks, BTN checks Turn: ($4.92) 3 (3 players) SB bets $0.80, Hero calls $0.80, BTN folds River: ($6.52) 8 (2 players) SB bets $1.90, Hero calls $1.90 Results:

    $10.32 pot ($0.46 rake) Final Board: 2 K K 3 8 Hero showed Q Q and won $9.86 ($5.64 net) SB showed 6 6 and lost (-$4.22 net) [/spoiler] Should this board be a c-bet? I nitted out here and checked with the intention of putting in a delayed cbet, which I would do some of the time if I had AK. SB is pretty fishy 53/7, not sure about my river call there but his turn bet seemed really weak and I didnt think he had the king, guess he might have hit his flush on the river. Another thing I am not so sure about is the size of the squeeze, I think I should have made it larger to $1.80-$2.

    Hi pockettones,

    I think yes. This is a spot where I think I prefer to cbet the flop because we are OOP against two opponents in a 3bet pot and the fact that no one 3bet preflop makes it less likely that they have AK combined with the fact that there are two Kings on board. However, I don't want to give a free card to two opponents with two clubs on board and I don't want to risk getting bluffed here. I think we can still get called by worse when we cbet the flop from hands like JJ/TT/99 and FDs. 3bet size I think is good. To call the river we need to be good ~ 20% of the time, I think when they bet the 3rd club that small it might be a thin value bet with Kx or a blocking bet with some PP. So we have to think about our opponents tendencies when we decide to call or fold taking into account that they lay us a good price to call when we have > 20% equity against their river bet range.
