  • 2NL Zoom fold AA on A river

    Hey guys, played this hand today in a 2NL Zoom session, didn't have any reads on the villain from previous hands. I'm not really sure about my turn play, think the river fold was correct but would like to hear some input from others.

    Nasty spot. Think you played it alright

      I think you played this hand very well.

      The turn is a nasty card for you, but I think your hand is too strong to check/give up. Check-calling is also undesirable on such a wet board, so I think continuing to bet for value against draws your opponent picked up is fine.

      On the river there are so many hands that beat you, any Jx, any club. If he made a tiny river bet, I suppose you could call but he's made the river bet so huge that you are not going to be ahead often enough to make a profitable call, therefore I like the check intending to give up.

        What about the theorem I can't remember what it is called. If a 4th suit comes and you are first to act go out and bet it. Villain will only call if he does have the club.

          Found it clarkmeister's theorem

            Sounds like a pretty bad theorem as if you have equity but no club, when you bet you are only going to get called by a club and lose money so really you should only do it as bluff when you check your hand and take it to showdown and sometimes win.

              this theorem is not applicable here


              • #8
                Yes I know I re-read it. Only applicable if you haven't got a hand with showdown value.
