  • NL5 SH - cbet KXX with QQ? 3b pot 3-way.

    Poker Stars, $0.02/$0.05, $0.01 ante No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite. Hero (SB): $5.07 (101.4 bb) BB: $12.76 (255.2 bb) UTG: $12.82 (256.4 bb) MP: $20.54 (410.8 bb) CO: $14.57 (291.4 bb) BTN: $9.53 (190.6 bb) Preflop: Hero is SB with Q Q UTG raises to $0.15, MP calls $0.15, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, BB folds, UTG calls $0.45, MP calls $0.45 Flop: ($1.91) K 8 6 (3 players) Hero checks, UTG bets $0.80, 2 folds Results:

    $1.91 pot ($0.08 rake) Final Board: K 8 6 Hero mucked Q Q and lost (-$0.61 net) UTG showed J J and won $1.83 ($1.22 net) MP mucked and lost (-$0.61 net) [/spoiler] I thought that if I bet I would only get called by KX and sets because it looks really strong continuing multiway after 3betting. Turns out the other guy bet pocket jacks, which is kinda fustrating but I dont want to be results oriented. Was this the right play? Should I call on the flop even though his bet looks really strong? None of these guys have loose stats, I wouldnt expect a straight draw but maybe they will also call with a flush draw but I think thats such a small part of their calling range.

    I would cbet. When he just calls your 3bet I think his hand looks more like medium pocket pairs and AQ+ type hands.

    When you check it opens you up to getting bluffed. IP I would often, or sometimes, check behind.

      Check-call flop, to give villain a chance to bluff with worse. Check-fold to a turn barrel unless you hit your 2-outer.

      When you bet the flop, you'll usually fold out worse hands, but when you check, you'll often get to showdown with the best hand, or be given a pretty good indication that you're beat (when villain barrels). Check-calling costs the same as betting, but gets you closer to realising your showdown equity.
