March 13, 2012 - QOTD

Post  Scat Damon on Tue Mar 13, 2012 7:26 pm

Question

In your six-max game online, it's folded to you on the button. You raise to $6 with J♣T♠ and the fish in the small blind calls. The big blind folds and the flop comes J♠ 4♠ 5♣. The small blind insta-shoves for $75.




























Correct Answer: Call

You have top pair and the insta-shove rarely makes sense. Just call and expect to be shown anything from ace high to a pair of 5s to a naked flush draw. If you're folding a decent top pair in this spot, you're throwing money away.

Ouch, idk about this. These are the kinda risks I tend to avoid when I have nothing invested. If he has a flush draw, i'd rahter not take a chance here.

Eh I dunno, I prefer people calling me with flush draws, they don't hit nearly as often as it seems, as they usually don't have the 9 outs they think but something closer to 5 or 6, i'd probably rather see a flush draw than 2 overcards here, though with either you're still like 4 to 1 to win the hand or something I think.

Yeah, ur right definitly. I was looking at it in a tournament perspective rather than cash which makes a huge difference for me.

Yeah that does make a big difference absolutely. In any case it's less than a third of your stack anyway, so even if you lose you still got plenty to play with. In tournament styles I will make questionable calls with worse hands than this sometimes on the idea that, even if my read is wrong or he catches his draw and I lose, I feel confident enough in my play at the table that it won't bother me much.
