  • $11 Super Stack tournament on FTP, How to play on turn

    It is $11 Super Stack tournament on FTP with 12min slow blind level and 5000 starting stack. 1) Should I have raised the flop? 2) Should I bet bigger on the turn once he checked to me? I am not sure if betting big on the turn would have got him to fold !! 3) Should I check down river?

    Hi Adi,

    With no read yet on how this guy plays, I prefer to just fold KJo preflop to his open (but would open it myself from this position if he had folded in front of me).

    Flop call is good, turn bet is fine. Alternatively we could move all in on the turn which is an overbet (5544 into 4644) which may get hero called if the villain thinks we are bluffing on a draw, and it prevents us from getting lost on bad rivers, of which there's a number, if he moves in after one comes.

    As played, I think the river is not good, and we should be checking this card back. It's just such a gross river card as it sometimes improves him to a better hand (AJ/AK/AA) and when it does not improve him, it makes him unlikely to call us now, so a hand like QQ or TT is just folding. All we can really get called by that's worse is AsQs/AhQh, but both those hands might well barrel this turn card rather than check/call, so they seem less likely holdings imo. The important point here is when you are value betting think about what hands in the villains range you are targeting, and the likelihood they will call your value bet. This particular river really devastates those chances, so although we have 2 pair the all in is probably too thin now.
