Jonathan is joined by PokerCoaching coach JWIN to discuss a hand that he played at the Lodge Poker Club in Austin, Texas.
They discuss the interesting choice from the small blind to just flat call pre-flop. Generally in cash games most players will opt for a 3-bet or fold strategy from the small blind. By the small blind just calling pre-flop it gives a lot of information as to the range of hands that they might have.
This poker hand starts with a very standard raise from JWIN with AQo and a call from the small blind with KTo. On the flop the small blind checks and JWIN continuation bets with top pair for around half pot. On the turn JWIN decides to size up as a flush draw is now available and the opponent could also still have a worse ace. The river brings in the backdoor flush and some straight combinations and JWIN’s opponent decides to lead for a pot sized bet. JWIN has the nut flush blocker and also a straight blocker and opts to turn his top pair into a bluff and uses an extremely large raise size. Will his opponent sniff out the bluff and call with two pair?
