  • Fullring Zoom 2NL - Pocket eights

    Hi guys, Villain 5 over 343 hands has been playing VP 18 PR 12 AG 2.1 3B 1.7 CB 60.0 Villain 7 over 130 hands VP 13 PR 7 AG 1.8 3B 2.2 CB 100.0 Do you think my call was ok? or is it possible to find a fold here? Thanks a lot!

    The call pre is fine. The flop is really tricky. When nitty villain pots it, he/she has AQ at minimum. I'm kinda tempted to just call, to see if the EP player comes along. Raising is by no means terrible, as it should chase away draws, but when the EP villain shoves, you're in bad shape. When the PFR reshoves, you're in a horrible spot. You're almost certainly losing to at least one, if not both, of these players, and with bottom set you're drawing almost dead if over-setted.
    In nit-ring, I think it's a fold now, especially if it's Zoom. It's a long time since I played full ring, and I only managed to get away from a set on the flop a couple of times, but I like to think this would be one of those spots. Getting nearly 400bb in the middle in a multiway pot with bottom set is probably not the best idea. With the stacks being so deep, I think you probably need middle set or better to stack off in this situation.
