I am on Small Blind with ATo and I decided to limp because my position and 5 more players.
When the flop comes I can see I have some outs for a straight.

My question is:
It's a good play to bet on the flop just to eliminate some players and in the same time to have more chances of winning ?

And I have a second question on my chest:
When I have a monster hand like AKs and my play would be preflop raise 3x+how many players in the hand, and I miss the flop, it is ok in general to bluff with a big bet ? I usually do that, but if I get called I don't know what to do.

Thank you Poker School !

Hi,

Hand Analysis


I would have preferred checking in the hope of peeling the out we need to make our hand. Our overall equity in the hand is very minimal as we really do not have any cleans even if we pair our ace or ten, and we would need to discount the outs that complete a flush aswell. Checking will accomplish keeping the pot small and not inflating the pot while being at a positional disadvantage. Plus this board texture is going to hit a wide range of holdings especially in a multi-way limped..all of which are going to see future streets possibly. As played on the turn, you did the right thing by check folding, we are not getting the proper pot odds to continue in the hand, if we chased on the turn it would have been a minus expected value wager.


Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee

Excellent!

You've done all 3 tasks and you'll get your first bonus in the next 24 hours, good job!

Step Two

Use your first buy-in to only play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Post one hand that you had difficulty with here in this thread using the hand replayer and we will analyze it for you.
Please watch the following video and answer the question below.



List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet?

Then study the Cash Game Course and once your happy have a go at attempting the quiz. Don't rush through the course, there's a lot of content there and the quiz is tricky so spend some time on this.

So you have 3 things to do to earn your next bonus.

1) Play the 1/2 cent Real Money tables and post an interesting hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer.
2) Watch the Bet Sizing video and answer the question below it.
3) Study and pass the Cash Game quiz.

Let us know as soon as you have all 3 tasks completed and we will award you with your next buy-in.

Best of Luck!

Hello,

First of all, the opponent is playing every hand.
The problem is that I had a good hand and I missed the flop. I called on the turn and river just because of the opponents history. And I was actually in front but he hit the flush on the river.
My play was bad ?

Hi,

Hand Analysis

This hand will play fairly well versus a villain who plays close to 100% of their range over a small sample of 30+hands. A limping range is usually perceived as a weak range of holdings and opening the action for 4x the big blind with the hopes of isolating that villain does have a lot of merit. We'll have high card value a decent percentage of the time post flop even if we do not hit a made hand.


On the flop, consider a min bet of 2c as a check, weak bets are generally weak holdings and their are several draws on this flop texture. I'd elect to raise 3/4 pot size to potentially get value from some inside straight draw combos, flush combos and a weaker Kx..there are just so many hand that we are ahead of.

On the turn, the board pairs and it's really hard for the villain to have a range of that they are limp calling with besides maybe A2 K2s Q2s..but taking card removal into account as the board is paired it reduces the likelihood of the villain having that range, we could again raise to potentially win the pot uncontested or get them to call with marginal equity. But there is some merit to just flat calling their bet, as it will keep their entire range of weak holdings barreling into us.


On the river I'd elect to just fold, this villain strikes me as a loose passive player and their bet sizing's appear to be trying to make up for lost value on previous streets. When a player with those tendencies bets, they'll usually have some piece of the board..when they call their marginal range just wants to take pot control and get to showdown..

Brave call down, unfortunate outcome. No worries.


Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
CannonLee
