  • Continuation-Bet or Not? - 25NL Cash Game Hand

    MP 21/14; BTN 17/13 Reasons to CBet: OOP Dry flop Multiway - so players play more straightforwardly & King would be in my perceived range as my UTG range is strong TAG/nit opponents more likely to fold Resaons to not Cbet: Multiway - more likely someone has a better hand BTN has fold to cbet of only 50% (6 hands) 2 players called my UTG raise so they must have some hand strength including possible King Not many turn cards improve our pot equity Does this lean more towards a check/fold on flop?

    Hi carl,

    I lean towards checking, I think the disadvantages of being OOP vs. 2 opponents who called an UTG raise (and a 4x UTG raise, which makes their ranges even stronger imo) outweigh the advantages of the board texture. We won't get better pairs to fold on this board, at least for 1 barrel, and we won't get called by worse save for flush draws, which will have both decent equity and positional advantage. And pretty much all scenarios of getting a slightly better hand to fold will involve at least 2 barrels, and like you noted there are no really good turn barreling cards save for the 7 (one of which completes the flush).

    I think you played this hand fine.
