  • 5nl zoom barreling question

    villain unknown So we can probably get the villain off Jx, flush draws and gut shots and getting called only by Ax, or is it too optimistic? Is barreling here the best option and what do otr if it isn't?

    Generally I don't think firing multiple barrel bluffs should be a big part of your strategy at 5NL.

    There are two problems I see with firing multiple barrels here. You've got an unknown villain, so you've got no idea if he never folds or folds too much. Also he's calling your early position raise from the Small Blind, so he's likely got a stronger range than usual. Also this is a semi-wet flop, with a lot of cards that will have hit villain's calling range.

    Having said that this flop also hits your range pretty hard and I like firing once and then giving up unless you spike your T. With this blank turn card, I don't see villain folding too often to another barrel, you'd likely have to be willing to fire three barrels to try and win the pot.

    I'd just take the free river and give up if unimproved.
