  • Good bluff spot ?

    25 players left i am the huge stack. Noticed this guy folding to peoples re raise so i picked this spot to do it to him. He showed me his cards he was holding QQ.

    Was he loose and folding to raises or was he tight and folding to raises.

    its an important consideration. you had noted he tendency and picked on them to good effect but any chance he was holding an A here? if so we may have created a monster!!

        If you're gonna make nonstandard plays you need to have a reason. What reads lead you to believe something is a good play? For example against someone who c-bets a lot of flops and then gives up on the turn almost always, you can float a lot of flops in position. Against someone who always raises donkbets you can donk out for value expecting a raise, etc.

        I actually really like how you played that 22 hand, though I'd probably just raise the flop rather than float.

        Don't like the 33 hand as much. Just calling out of position preflop seems pretty leaky unless you have a good read that you can make him fold a lot of flops. Check/minraise on a super super drawy board? Not thrilled with the raise size. I do like a check/raise here as this flop DOES hit a preflop calling range very hard, much harder than a preflop raiser's range.
