  • what is my opp's hand? - $5.5 $15

    Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
    opp#1 and opp#2 i saw them limp random hands so i was trying to steal their chips worst 5 players in the pot i hit TPMK being the aggressor and I hit TP let's see where am I at? turn - this is the problem looking at the board I can see FD/SD which is easily my opp range I double barrel and of course my opp use the C/R option and I need to fold even if I already put 50% of my stacks very poor play by me now im thinking i shouldn't have played this hand or just check the turn for pot control but i don't want my opp to get a free card help sir

      It kind of depends on the limpers. They limp random hands, but how loose are they when facing a raise? If you have a feeling they're gonna fold and won't just call it off, I like the raise. But the moment there are 4 people coming into the pot, I'm going to be pretty much done with the hand.

      Then we flop the top pair, but our kicker isn't the greatest. Any AQ, KQ could have called our raise as they'd be priced in. I like the flop bet, but once that doesn't win me the pot, I think I'm done with this hand.

          Hi Marvin! Dangerous hand that Q9. One of the most troublesome of all. (Q9 and J8 are both really high on the list). Q9o is a definite reverse-implied odds sufferer, so I like that you raise rather than limp in preflop. I think folding is better though. Doesn't look like you have much fold equity, but at least you have position.

          Definitely checking back at least one of those streets with top pair bad kicker. It's not really top pair mid kicker since while yes, there are four worse kickers than yours, Q7, Q6, Q4, Q2, they are not likely. You can bet the flop, but then definitely checking back the turn. That 5 really doesn't change anything, and it makes a bad bluff card. You could bet tiny to look weak. This should polarize his range if he shoves. If he only shoves better it's an easy fold, but if he senses weakness he may shove wide in which case it's an easy call. You do need a read to know which to choose though. Personally I'm just checking it back and trying to get to showdown. Maybe I can catch a river bluff.
