  • 100NL, ZOOM Turned nut vs. XC, XC, XRAI

    UTG: (24 hands) 17/17/0.5 SB: (335 hands) 15/10/1.9 BB: (33 hands) 24/12/2.0 PF: I think PF is pretty standiardo trying to invite the weaker players in the blinds to come along. OTF: I think my sizing is pretty good. OTT: $12.00-$15.00 would be better? I was thinking after the villain XCs OTF that they might have a flush draw as well, so I was expecting them to XR their flush here but they don't. OTR: Villain decides to X/Shove on me! Would you call this check/shove or fold? Villain's AF is very small @ 0.5 but so is our sample size. The problem I see here is that villains rarely X/Shove the river as a bluff.

    tough spot

    im going to call on the river because if he got set of 9's 7's on flop. I think he's gonna cbet it bec

    the semi wet board or at least check raise it already.

    on the river you got to call he got the 2nd best flush.

      No reasonable player will x/shove a flush here given you have nearly all boat combos in your range.

      Fwiw AA plays this 100% the same.

        Hi dirt,

        Interesting hand. I think I would call here. The villain's line just makes little sense to me for most randoms and how they would play their sets.

        FTR, I don't disagree with any of this. The thing is, maybe villain's not a reasonable player. If we knew villain was solid, I think it's a fold (and we'll see AA/99/77 mostly). Readless, I think it's so much less clear. People might go nuts with a flush, with AK played awful, or with some bluff thinking we can't call. They won't think about or realize we have 77/99 in our range.

        I guess my position is, vs. a known fish, I would call. Vs a strong player, I think it's a fold. Vs a random, it's not crystal clear but with the nut flush I would lean towards calling.

          I think specifically at Zoom we should be erring on the side of folding.
