A professional recommended not raising a dry flop J♦ 9♥ 2♠ with ANY hand.I'm confused
On another site a professional was analyzing some hands from a WSOP
Why, on this specific flop, the professional recommends not raising with ANY hand?
Starting Stack: 7,500
Level 1: 25/50
Seven-handed and an EP player opens to 150. Hero calls from late position with deuces and both blinds call.
J♦ 9♥ 2♠ (4-way 600 pot)
EP raiser bets 525, Hero makes it 1,100 with bottom-set. The blinds fold and the EP raiser calls.
Q♦ (2-way 2,800 pot)
EP raiser bets 2,500, Hero calls.
6♠ (2-way 7,800 pot)
EP raiser checks, Hero bets 1,500, EP calls and mucks when sees Hero's hand.
I think the raise on the flop is standard ...on the river I considered jamming but didnít want to force a fold so I bet smaller.
Normally I wouldn't raise such a dry flop with any hand and would include a hand as strong as a set in my calling range to allow the EP raiser to barrel off lower-equity hands while disguising the strength of our hand. As played I would just call the turn bet as well. Once checked to on the river I would jam because we only have a little over half pot back.
