All Suited Up!

published on 09/19/08 at 9:27 am

Not having played poker in a week or two, you sit down at the computer and enter a 9 player no limit holdem sit n’ go on Full Tilt Poker. Everyone is about even (~1500 chips) when the 3rd hand is dealt. The dealer is just to the left of you and the blinds are 5/10. You are dealt the Ace of diamonds and the 8 of diamonds.

Everyone folds, except the player to your right, who raises it to 20. You yourself call, as does the dealer to your immediate left, the small blind folds, and the big blind calls the raise. Four people will see this flop.

The flop is the 6 of diamonds, 3 of spades, and the 8 of spades. The big blind checks, but our pre-flop raiser bets 200 chips. What do you do?

    As played I would fold. You have the button and the BB to act behind you. At this point you have top pair top kicker, but pf raiser could have 99-AA. Given that there are 3 others in the pot, you are likely behind.

    A different preflop line could have been to re-raise to something like 80-100. Likely getting you isolated with the pf raiser.

    Easy to come up with these lines from my desk, instead of the heat of battle ;)
