What would you do if you had a pocket K and the guy next to your right raises $15 preflop? I called the $15 raise. Flop comes A - -, he raise again $25, I called. Turn card comes, he raise $30, I called. River card comes he raise $40, I called. We open our cards, he had AQ. He hit the Aces on the flop, which I felt he had the Ace all along, but for some reason it was hard me to fold.
Should i called and then reraise on preflop? If yes, how much should i raise so that he’ll fold his hand….. $25, $30? Keep in mind that this is at $1 / $2 NL table.
How would some of you play this hand from the beginning?
Big Raise Preflop!!! Make him decide... The tighter he is, the better your chances. When the flop comes, (assuming he didn't fold lol), I for one would put out a feeler bet, but, when he raises, (with the ace on board) You need to be willing to lay it down, unless you play loose and feel lucky...in which case, when can we get together to play! lol
