It’s hard to hit trips when playing heads-up, it’s even harder to fold your hand when you do! In this weekly poker hand, Shannon Shorr shows us all why he is widely considered to be one of the best poker players in the world.
I discuss the merits in checking back with weak top pairs on wet boards against aggressive opponents in order to extract value on later streets. I also teach you why you should be looking to take the betting lead when the flop is checked through with your value hands.
When deciding to use an overbet size you are polarizing your range of poker hands to either complete air or a nutted hand. This means that your opponent’s should not be raising these bet sizes very often as a bluff!
Shorr has amassed over an incredible $10,000,000 in live tournament winnings and currently is ranked 7th on the Global Poker Index rankings. His opponent Ren Lin has burst onto the scene in the last couple of years having racked up over $2,000,000 in cashes in less than 24 months!
