Hello,

In today's 'Hand of the Day' Felix discusses the perils of playing medium strength overpairs on a co-ordinated board.



Enjoy,

That's a pretty easy bet-fold. 88 is in a world of hurt against villain's range, and if you call, you'll hate every turn card apart from the , and villain will almost certainly be barrelling and forcing you into a commitment decision for your whole stack. Stacking off a medium pair is not a profitable play, so folding the flop is by far the best option.
