  • 1R NLHE Can I fold KQ odd?

  • #2
    Hi sandip,

    When we start the hand with less than 20bb's, and go to the flop with a stack to pot ratio of 2, I think it's going to be a rare extreme circumstance that we should be folding top pair/good kicker. I certainly don't see that here.

    I would bet the flop bigger, expecting to get action from other Q's, Tx, and draws including gutshots in a 1r. I think if we go like 55K here that's nice... if we get a caller, the pot will be 198K and we'll have 145K left to shove on the turn.

    Edit: The question must be preflop, since no one gave you a chance to fold post flop... It's close and depends on the players behind me, but I don't mind opening KQ here.

    Tweet this hand on Twitter using the Tweet button above for a chance to win a seat in the next $5,000 guaranteed Big Bang tournament. You MUST include #LearnPoker and @PokerStarsPSO in your tweet. Winners will be notified by email every Monday. Good luck!
