In this hand with 98o on the button i figured it was worth a raise to the loose opening limper on the button to 4x the bb. 2 others call and after the flop I don't connect at all. The opening limper puts out a pot size bet and i figure he's trying to take down the pot so i thought that by investing another 110 i could see where i was in the hand. On the turn with such a small bet i detect weakness and while i might not be ahead, i think i can definitely get him off of his hand. I raise him, and finally on the river i put out a bet and he folds.

I have also watch the "Getting started video" and completed the basics test.

I have therefore completed all three parts

EDIT: I have just realised i have not taken the quiz yet but i tried to take it but it says something is wrong with my account?

Hi,

Hand Analysis

I like your thought process throughout this hand, although this is a hand that we generally do not want to be isolating a loose passive villain with even in position, even though a limping range is perceived as a weak range. Generally we would want to be isolating them with decent value hands JT+ QT+ KTs+ AT+ 99+ etc.. and the reason for this is because we have a few more villains left to act behind us, if we get 3bet from the blinds we would ideally want to see a flop having a positional advantage with the range mentioned above and this hand wont be flopping strong enough of the time for it to profitable in the long run versus a tight 3bet range.

Post flop, the villain could be leading with such a wide range here on the flop, it's unlikely that they have top pair on such a dry board texture, so their leading range is going to be very weak here, something like 7x betting for protection and thin value from high card floats, or basically just random air. We can float here and re-evaluate our course of action on the turn just as you did.

On the turn, from here on out consider min bets as a check. The king peeling on the turn is an ultiamate scare card to the Q or 7 and our flatting range on the flop could look something like this KQ QJ AK KJ KT KK etc.. We could elect to raise here on the turn as it's plausible the villain has complete air or do a double float and try to take the pot down in the river.

Food for thought, when you start playing for real money at the micro stakes, there is really no need to be bluffing at 2nl to be profitable, just focus on playing value hands. When your poker schemata has developed through trial and error or via the content available here at PokerSchool and you've moved up in stakes, then consider bluffing as an attribute to play winning poker.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
CannonLee
