A normal cash poker game hand
Our protagonist sits in a local cash poker game round with blinds. The game at the table is loose and regularly quite passive and a lot of players usually see flops. In our protagonists ran it pretty well so far, and he stacks 450 before him.
Ace-king before the flop
On Button gets the protagonist. After three Limps, the player increases the cut-off at 10. The Cut-Off has a stack of 210 plays comparatively violent, grabs the big bets but only with the nuts. What is the best train here?
The wanted to make our readers:
|Reraise to 25 61%|
|Reraise to 50 23%|
Clearly, a reprise is the best move here. Ace-King is likely to be significantly better than the range, with the raises the cut-off and with this hand you certainly interested in reducing the number of players. With ace-king will not make top pair and then compete against four or more opponents – because with so many players, it is considerably more likely that this top pair is beaten. One or a maximum of two opponents are far better and make the hand much more profitable and easier to play.
This would be a very favorable situation for the character, because this would look in a position flop with a hand that is probably stronger than his opponent is with a raise to 50 Man makes the cut-off much more difficult with a hand like ace-ten or king-queen to call. However, with this exact hands wants to lure him yes in the pot, so far there is such a large re-raise the risk of isolating themselves against better hands his range.
Four top pair
The protagonist decides to call. The players in the blinds fold, but two limpers (both have over € 500 in front of him) call. Therefore, you can see four of a flop. In the center are 43 and the board falls. After two checks, the cut-off 25 alludes.
