$2 NLHE 6-max: Blind struggle with ATs
: I have position and a good hand, call keeps the pot small, and make my range look wider. 3- bet will take the small pot decent % of times,but puts me in trouble if an opponent has a good hand and I flop top pair of tens or top pair of aces. Which option is better and why? I go for call.
: In postion with second pair, I think my hand is worth a call also because it might be just standard c-bet with air.
Sb checks, do we bet here ? I don't see many reasons for betting here. If we bet as a bluff and want better hand to fold, like JJ Q with low kicker, it is very unlikely that these hands will fold(especially at this limits). If we bet for value, we can only get value from any flush (Axs Kxs J9s 54s+) and straight(KJ J9 ) draw combinations, and maybe TJo T9o T8o, everything else folds.
Also by checking, we may induce bluff on the river.
If Sb doubell barrel here we fold right ?
we check behind in case SB has straight or flush and is ready to check-raise. we can only get value from JJ TJ T9 T8, so if we get called it is likely that we will be behind.
