  • $2/3 NLHE Top & Bottom BB Special

  • #2
    No brainer c/r on the flop and I like a check call on the turn and bluff catching the rest of the way.
    We don't need a bet here to get stacks in and we could be up against a set or a better 2 pair now.

    If the turn checks around I'm probably leading on the river for max value, 250.
    I'm bluffing catching if an A J T 9 hits river

    I don't know how comfortable either V is but I feel like they both have something they like and I think we are almost always still ahead.

      Pot is $355 and hero has $350 behind. We check raised the flop to take the lead, so I would continue betting here all-in. We lose to sets and KQ, and can get value from Kx and draws, though there aren't very many draws.

        The V's stacks are $90 and $245 so we are effectively going all in for $245.

        I don't see the $90 stack ever folding a Kx on the turn but the $250 stack may be able to get away from a marginal Kx hand and he is my main target..

        Also it's unlikely all 3 players in this hand have a K.yet all seem to like their hands enough to have gone this far.

        Maybe I'm to passive (I probably am) but I don't like my hand enough to jam $245 on the turn.

        What can we reasonably expect 2 players to call with when we go all in?

        We have the only K rag combos K2 K6 and the worst one anyway.

        Maybe one V has AK KQ KJ KT K9s idk maybe K8s.

        Maybe the other V is slow playing AA or they might just have that set of 6's and it is possible but most unlikely that they have the last K in the deck.

        So at this point the reality is we very well could have the 2nd best hand and sometimes the worst hand yet it's still a very strong bluff catcher. It's also possible that we get called by worse and they suck out on the river.

        The way this hand has played out I think we want those 2 pair K rag combos in our checking range and we can still go for value on the river whenever the turn gets checked around and we get a favorable river draw.

      I'm going to agree with kkep

        All good points, and I agree check is the best option here.

          I'm open to the idea that this isn't the most +EV, but even getting those odds I'm just folding pre here.

            This is probably the best approach. Still, I like trying to figure out what you'd do in situations like these as you sometimes get into them anyway.

            For sure. Doesn't make it not worth talking about.
