Poker Brainstorm Ace-King in practice
Last week we let our readers by playing an ace-king-hand and wanted to know what they were before and after the flop do with your hand so. Here we want to resolve the issues so build known our opinion.
Situation: A normal cash game hand
Our protagonist sits in a local cash game round with blinds. The game at the table is loose and generally quite passive and loads of players usually see flops. In our protagonists ran it attractive well so far and he stacks before him. Then there is the following hand.
Ace-king before the flop
On Button gets the protagonist. After three Limps, the player increases the cut-off. The Cut-Off has a stack of plays comparatively aggressive, grabs the big bets but only with the nuts. What is the best train here? Clearly, 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. As regards the amount of raises with a raise to Man, pushes probably get the limpers out of the pot, but loads the cut-off to take a call. This would be a very favorable situation for the protagonist, because this would look in a position flop with a hand that is probably stronger than his opponent.
Four top pair
The protagonist decides to call. The players in the blinds fold, but two limpers both have over in front of him call. Therefore, you can see four of a flop. What should the protagonist with his top pair do now? After the protagonist unfavorable alternative call has chosen before the flop, he has to wrangle with his top pair and three other players. Fortunately, the Board has come incredibly dry there are no realistic Draws and very few hands that beat the protagonists.
