  • 2NL cash game

    I know that i should fold A3s UTG but i considered that playing hands like this would be good for my game. My opponent was one that likes very much to bluff, close to a maniac. I tried to make my river bet look like a bluff and get payed but i never expected to that. Excuse me for bad english )

    Yeah, fold pre, playing hands like this will be bad for your game. It's just a clear fold at FR table. Even thought it is short handed right now.

    Good job checking the flop.

    On the turn, I don't actually hate a fold, as some cards which give us a straight also give others a better straight ie. often if we hit our straight someone can have the higher straight.

    On the river, your raise value owns yourself, you only get called by better (Not strictly true at 2NL.....) and anything you beat is folding. You are far from the nuts here, you have the idiot end of the straight on a flushy connected board. There is a good chance we are beat and we are definitely beat when villain 1 takes the line on the river that he did.

      I would fold it UTG in full ring, but in 6 handed I think it can be opened if our opponents are weak/bad (I'd fold if it was a tough table). It's a bit better situation than a 6-max table, as there players are intending to play short handed, while at a full ring table that's currently short, the players may not be used to short handed play and may not adjust.

      Played fine until the river, I don't like overbetting the river personally, and this is a must fold when the villain moves all in, we are never good here.
