I think this question lacks a lot of context. It matters whether you're in a raised or three-bet pot. It matters who raised. It matters whether your hand is the unassailable nuts or whether draws exist. And whether redraws exist for you in the event that your opponent's good fortune usurps your hand. It matters whether you're in position relative to your ...

a royal flush is not the only "unbreakable nuts". sometimes, a straight flush is unbreakable. example: if the flop is 5d, 7d, 8d and i am holding the 6d and 9d, my hand is unbeatable regardless of what other cards come out and what other players hold. it is important to remember there is no difference than a straight flush and a royal flush except that ...

You can only lose the low hand if you get counterfeit (when a low card hits the board that also pairs one of your low cards), so that you don't hold the nut low on the river anymore. If there is a low hand possible, and no A or 2 on the board, you always have the nut low. At worst, you will split the low pot if someone else also has a A2XX hand. With that ...

As you and others have pointed out, there's a myriad of factors to consider in this situation (as in every hand), so I'll share some real general tips. The nice thing about flopping an unbeatable hand or practically unbeatable hand is that you no longer have to worry about your cards, improving your hand, pot odds or any of that--you're free to turn 100% of ...

The first rule should be consistency. If you always check when you have the stone cold nuts, then people will begin to pick up on that. If you always continuation bet when you hit and check when you don't. People are going to pick up on that. The same can go mentally and physically. If you focus on your cards and keep quiet when you didn't hit the nuts, ...

This happened to me last week in a local weekly pub tournament. I was BB and had 79 off suit. No one bet pre flop and the flop came down 6 8 10. I bet 300 ( 3x Bet). It got called. The turn card was a different suit to the previous 3 so no chance of a flush and nothing paired. I raised to 1,000 and got called by one player and on the river bet 2,000 and ...

A2 will be nut low when: There are 3 or more different cards 8 of below on the board. None of those three board cards is an A or 2. It might still be nut low in other cases, for example where either the A or the 2 completes a wheel with 4 board cards. But in most--not all--cases, nut low is the having in your hand the two lowest cards not on the board. ...
