From Dan Harrington's book on 6-max "The paired flop: We're playing in a $0.25/$0.50 6-max game. The first two players fold and the cutoff raises to $1.50.We have the 6h6c on the button and
call the $1.50. The blinds fold and the pot is $3.75.The flop is the 8c8h2s. The cutoff bets $2. What do we do? Paired flops share many of the characteristics of dry flops since very few hands connect with a paired flop, so if the cutoff didn't start with a pair, he probably doesn't have one now. In addition, he can't have a flush draw or a straight draw. Our modest pair of sixes is likely to be the best hand. If we probably have the best hand, our options are calling or raising. In this case, raising is the better choice. If our opponent has two high cards and is bluffing
(the most likely scenario), a raise should win the hand. If we just call, many cards can arrive on the flop which we won't like to see. If we just call and an ace comes on the turn and our opponent bets, we won't know if the ace hit him or not, and we could be setting ourselves up to lose a big pot if we guess wrong. We raise" Thoughts? What if we were against UTG?
