  • 25nl Full Ring - UTG with JJ, faced aggression of BB on a dry board

    I don't have much info about SB.
    MP1 plays 16/13/7 after 130 hands.

    My questions are:

    1. How do you read SB's hand (OTF/OTT)?
    2. How should I play my hand OTT?
    3. Is my raise OTF ok? I feel my hand is somewhat vulnerable, but I hate to see an overcard OTT with two villains...

    Appreciate any other comments.

    Sorry several mistakes about thread name:

    1. Not BB, but SB.
    2. This is a ZOOM table.

    Can I correct it by myself? I can't find any link to edit...

      Hi dog-en-saka,

      Given SB's stack size and the fact that they don't top-up and that they donk bet this dry flop I will assume that the villain is not a very competent opponent. His hand strength to me looks like some pair or a 9. QQ+ would be more likely to 3bet us preflop (but there's no rule that says this player won't just call AA preflop ) for the sake of analysis I would discount QQ+ from their range. Clearly our flop raise is for value and also to keep the pot HU. Because they don't have too much behind we can either raise them all in OTT to avoid an overcard or a scarecard to them or just call and allow them to either bet the rest OTR themselves or if they check we can bet.

        When a fishy type opponent donk bets a dry flop is it often a weak hand in your experience?

          OTF I thought that too, but in my experience this weird successive moderate bets by such a player often means a monster, so I seriously suspected he had 99, A2, or other fancy
          Also, I often encountered players who play QQ+ exactly like this when I was 2NL and 5NL player, so I felt nervous OTT... actually I thought the converse of carl's (but yes, I sometimes see a completely air hand in this kind of situation).
