  • Should I Have Folded Pocket Kings? - 2NL Cash Game Hand

    this is the first time i have posted a hand for review so might not have done it right. i wanted to know if i made a bad or good decision. i folded pocket K's. i think the part of my game that i want to improve is not folding when someone applies pressure because i think they have it, as often they dont. but in this situation i put my opponent on possibly a set of Q's, two pair maybe A,Q. he made a big bet on the river but he definetley liked when the Q came down on the turn and the A on the river did not slow him down. did i make a bad or good decision. i hope this hand replayer thing works right

      Hi,

      I think preflop, size your 3bet much bigger 3x, so 18cent.

      On the flop, cbet. I would make it around 2/3 pot, as you want to go for value. You could go for 1/2pot to induce worse hands to call.

      It's a difficult decision on the turn, because it would appear that villain is an unknown, and so villain could be doing this with anything. He could be a total maniac and be raising anything, or he could be a nit peddling the nuts.

      Usually though a turn raise indicates strength, and so you could fold here and get more info on villain later in the game and build up reads from there.

      If you are curious, I guess you could call his raise on the turn (since it is only twice the size of your bet) and see what villain does on the river - if he checks then you could check behind and make a note on what he raised the turn with. If you note however, how the aggression went from you to him suggests that he has hit something. I think the river is now a fold.


      Cheers,

      Matt

        I agree with pullin,
        Pre make a bigger 3bet.
        You could call turn but the river is a fold for sure.

            The stats of the villain is also worth considering, but as others have said, it's a definite fold. I would fold here on the turn unless the player was a maniac / big fish. A turn raise is a very powerful play, so it should set alarm bells ringing once you get raised - especially true if the villain is passive. Pre-flop, I would make it 3x.
