5NL - AQ (tough spot)

Posted 2 years ago

Anon, Zone, no reads.

Not sure about this hand and whether a b/f on the turn is the right line. Would anyone else play it differently?

UTG min opens, we 3Bet from BB and get 2 callers. We cbet the flop and get called by the SB. We decide to b/f on this turn to try to charge any remaining SD's, charge pairs. Anything bad with this line so far?

Agree. Don't see need to bet turn. What are you getting value or protection from? Not very many hands. JJ or some other PP with a worse FD. A passively play AK with Ah, KQ? Most 9x and Tx is going to fold, i believe. I think you are beat by a fair amount of hands right now. I don't think SB is a good reg and can have a lot of 99 TT,some flushes, although not a ton and KJs. Plus some 2 pair like T9 and QT. You do block some of that stuff, but I still think he can have you beat a fair amount. You are IP so you can make sure a second bet goes in on the river if he checks river Like Kuca said I think you can call a lot of river bets, unless he really puts you to the test and overbet jams river after you check back turn.. I think if you are betting with intention of folding it is pretty bad. You have quite a bit of equity with the pair + FD and having to fold that would be very sad. So I think checking back and playing rivers accordingly would be better.
