Facing a shove on an ugly river

TL; DR - I shove the turn. Personally i would have taken a more aggressive line than check calling the flop, but Hero's flop line is reasonable. On the turn it gets abit dicey, H has a strong hand on ...

Is all-in calling 2 all-ins with KK a bad move pre-flop?

Short answer, no, I wouldn't have done anything differently. You have 14BBs and find KK with two players already committed to pay off your entire stack if you win the hand. Sure, you might rather ...

Should I call overbet shove with top pair

There are a number of decisions here, let's review them one at a time: CO and SB limp in to a BB with Qx suited and the hero calls I'd say this is the first mistake here. I would raise this to 3.5 ...

Help with a hand analysis from more experienced players?

Preflop: Your $10 raise pre-flop seems a bit small. I'd make it around $16. On the otherhand, AQo on a 9 handed deepstacked table is not even that great. What do you do against a 3-bet? You could ...

Tough spot with Aces against regular, NLHE-6max

Preflop is standard and flop is fine. At that point, the only hand that beats you is a flopped flush and even then you have a strong re-draw to a full house. On the turn, I'd bet more. Your hand ...

Generally A9 wants to check a flop like 844 rainbow, because you are likely ahead of you opponent's range, but you don't want o play a massive pot. If you bet you can get bluff raised easily and you ...

Should I call all-in here with bottom set?

Qd-9c-2d is pretty much the most favorable runout you could hope for when you're holding a pair of deuces (other than quads). If you're not willing to get all-in on that board, you shouldn't even be ...

Do I call a turn all-in with KK with against a possible flush?

If the villain really has made a flush, especially the nut flush, I think he would be making a mistake to put you all-in on the turn. He ought to bet only as large as he thinks he can to keep you in, ...

Split pot... It's the best 5 card hand, that's it, nothing else matters. Yes the Q7 has another full house but that makes no difference. Player 1's best 5 cards: QQQ77 Player 2's best 5 cards: QQQ77 ...

Facing donk lead and call on flop ... what now?

It is an interesting spot for sure. It is hard to say exactly what range the SB and BB have here. Is SB just betting hands like Td8d? Could BB have 87 or would he raise? It is impossible to say. One ...

Check or bet turn with effective nuts

Preflop: fine defend. Might put in a 3bet squeeze once in a while if stacks were deeper. Should be concerned about SB's range given that he cold called and has to play OOP to two players. Flop: ...

Should I call this river overbet with an overpair?

You are looking at a pot sized bet on the river, so since you are getting 2 to 1 you should be looking to fold around 2/3 of your range. You should try to play a balanced and unexploitable strategy. ...

Call with straight when 3 suited cards are in table, that's a bad move?

A bet of 2.5x the pot IS a huge bet. Which is why you should pass with a straight when you see the third flush card. You can be beaten, not only by a flush, but by a 6-high straight (villain has 6-5). ...
