  • 2nl cash table, Is this called chasing draws?

    Am I chasing the draw with wrong odds here? Where should I have folded? - H

    I'd have 3-bet preflop if I wanted to play the hand.

    As played, fold on the flop as this bet prices me out. I'd need to call 9 cents into a pot that will be 34 cents (26.5%). 8 outs for an OESD is only worth 16%. Pot equity is higher, so I expect to lose chips by calling, so I need to fold.

    This is chasing and needs to be avoided.

      Thanks John, I guess that getting a chance to call with the right odds just doesn't happen most of the time...
      Why would I want to 3-bet with AJo from the BB?
      With a strong but non-premium hand I thought I'm supposed to only call if raised.
      Well, maybe since it was only a min raise...

        When playing out of position, I want to have the lead in the hand. Calling OOP (especially out of the blinds) is something that will be a big chip leak over time due to the positional disadvantage postflop.

          I don't mind calling the flop bet in position (although it's better to do this when you have a deeper stack so that you have some implied odds), but fold the turn. On a paired board, you could very well be drawing dead against a full house.

            Good point!

              I would call this flop for sure. John's is right on the immediate odds not being there, but we also have some implied odds that imo more than make up the difference (we can expect to win more money on the turn if we make our hand). While our straight coming would put 4 to a straight on the board, I think we still rate to get action a reasonable amount of the time. The SB donking out into the field looks strong in a 4 way pot, and if he's got 2 pair or a set he's not folding to our turn bet. And anyone with a jack (KJ/QJ/JT/J9/J8/JJ) makes a costly 2nd best straight when we turn our nut card a king, and we should be winning their stack when that happens. So I'm ok with folding this turn card and action, but not on the flop for a single bet.

                3bet or fold pre. Personally, normally I would like to fold since AJo won't flop well enough of the time, though here the raise size is only the minimum - and we have two other callers. Worth a shot, but yeah, fold on the turn.

                  To me is a 3bet or a fold. I don't think AJo is strong enough to play a 4way pot.
