I vote call. Villain did not raise on the flop or turn indicating that he was not likely holding top pair. My take on this particular villain is that the most likely thing he was doing was representing a ten in his hand because he believes the hero to be a very tight player and likely to fold a winning hand here. The fact that there was the blown flush ...

Your post lacks information to answer well.we don't know about positions and we don't know about your player (is he loose (seem to play every single hand), is he tight (plays only very strong hands)) and the image you have at the table. First A4os is not really a hand you should consider playing usually. With such a board and other player who seemed to show ...

Your question has to do with an important poker concept: board texture. You must always consider what your hand is vis-a-vis according to the other cards on the board and how that board can improve. Overall, you should recognize that the more cards your opponent sees, the more value your hand loses - don't let them see more card than they need to. In the ...

You say you only called the bet and had one opponent, which means the opponent had the big blind position and checked to see the flop. This means he could have any two cards and it would be impossible to put him on any range. If you were the SB, the pot was only 24 on the flop (if there was no ante). This means you made a decent pot sized bet with your ...

The short answer is that the other cards don't matter? Why, because the cards are just as likely to have been folded, as they are to still be in the stub of cards to be dealt out. You can't differentiate the cards in that way, so you don't need to account for them in any special way.

Assuming you know nothing about the cards dealt, they don't matter, so the 66% holds up. In most calculations we would just ignore the folded cards since we don't have any definite information about them. If you want to factor them in, you can no longer calculate your exact pot equity, since you don't know how often your opponents are folding hands like Ax, ...

It is very good to know the odds of winning with any given hand, as this will tell you a good course to bet. However, if you rely totally on the odds your opponents will learn this (how quickly depends on how good they are) and soon be able to tell what is in your hand by your bets. And this is where the real game of poker comes in, not telling your opponent ...

This answer will depend on whether you are talking about a cash game or tournament. In a cash game, you don't have to show. It is acceptable for a user to not show, wait for the river and then choose to reveal or muck their cards. That's perfectly acceptable etiquette. In case of both players not wanting to show, the last aggressor is usually required to go ...

The responsibility to show first lies on the person who put in the last bet or raise on the last betting round. In your example, this will be the person who shoved all-in. If the second player sees those cards and his hand is not a winner, he can safely muck and the pot will be awarded to the shover. If the second player has the best hand and wants to win ...

The king on the river gave your opponent two pair, kings and nines. It also changed your best hand, giving you two pair, kings and nines. Your opponent had a queen kicker, which plays on this board and is the sole difference between your hand and your opponent's. In hold-em, the best hand is determined by the best 5-card combination of cards for each player ...

All odds calculators will tell you is the odds of you winning given your hole cards and the board. It is useful to know the stats but risky to rely on them. If you're heads up and villain has 72o and shoves, you're likely to fold unless you have a premium hand. Likewise, if villain has nuts and limps or stop/goes, you're likely to play until the later ...

Aces may indeed be used as low in a straight in holdem. A2345 is the lowest possible straight, also sometimes called a "wheel." In any other context, aces will be ranked higher than other cards.

I have noticed players whom are green to brick and mortar poker tend not to be vary good at understanding tells, at both ends of the spectrum. They are not practiced with tells so they do not understand what to look for and what it means and they do not understand what other players are seeing in them. Tells are complicated, they are difficult to read ...

The OP asked "I have heard both that you need to double the previous bet and that the minimum raise is the big blind. Which is it" The big blind is a bet, just a blind bet meaning the player bet blind before they received cards, so like all other bets, the minimum raise is always the size of the bet. You may have been told or heard that the minimum raise ...
