February 23, 2012 - QOTD

Question

In your six-max game online, with blinds at $1/2 the player under the gun raises to $8. You call on the button with J♥J♦ and the small blind folds. The big blind calls and the flop comes T♥ 7♠ 4♠. The big blind checks as does the guy under the gun. You bet $16 and the big blind raises to $40. Under the gun folds.


































Correct Answer: Raise

First things first, don't fold. Because you bet on the button after the original raiser had checked it makes your hand look significantly more like a bluff than if you were the pre-flop raiser. That leaves calling or raising. So weigh the chance that your opponent will keep bluffing vs. the chance your opponent will stack off with a ten here to decide what to do. Against a fish I'd be more willing to raise-get-it-in because they love stacking off with pairs.

Definatly a good question, I voted call just because your opponent has a 10 or maybe even a draw, and I don't want to scare him off if he has a ten with a big shove. The only hand you rly have to worry about here is a luckily flopped set.

Yeah, the only problem I have with calling is if he is on a draw then he sees the next card essentially for free, i'd rather push him off a draw, and he'd prolly call with his ten, so I feel like raising is a win win, unless of course he has a set like you said, but no turn is gonna change your mind on that
