February 1, 2012 - QOTD

Post  Scat Damon on Wed Feb 01, 2012 2:25 pm

You're playing in a very aggressive $1/2 game. In this hand a loose-aggressive player under-the-gun raises to $15. Players 3 and 5 call, as do you with A♦J♦. The cut-off folds and everyone else calls. You go seven-handed to a flop of Q♦ 6♦ 7♣. The blinds check and the UTG player goes all-in for $125. Player3 folds and player5 goes all-in over the top for $225. You have $175 in chips.

Correct Answer: Call

You have the nut flush draw and one overcard. Granted, your ace is probably no good, but you have nine outs to the nuts. With the under-the-gun shove and player 5's re-shove, there’s $408 in the pot that you can win. You’re getting better than 2.5-1 with nine outs twice. There is also a small chance someone will enter the pot behind you. The more people enter the pot, the better it is for you. However, with just the two players, you will win this hand enough times at showdown that calling shows a positive expectation.
