This is a discussion on Shove vs TTs postflop within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; Hi guys, here is a hand I played earlier today.
The hand took place in .2c/.5c holdem.
I have seen several hands bow from the villain, and
I have seen several hands bow from the villain, and it feels pretty fishy, limped with weaker hands, raised with bigger hands. The action is limping, raising on the flop 100% of the time and sometimes folding on the turn sometimes keep barreling.
In the previous hand I had 3-bet him with my AQ and he folded, now I am on the button, villain is in the cutoff and the action folds to him. He limps and I 3-bet to 4 BBs. The action folds around to him and he makes the call. At this point I think that he has very wide range.
The flop comes 789 rainbow
He bets approx. 2/3 of the pot.
I raise with my overpair, even though it is a wet flop, I am in the lead most of the time, only hands that can have me crushed here, which he could have potentially, are maybe JT offsuit, J6 offsuit or suited even, maybe some kind of ace rags, but I think he would have raised with big part of Ax combinations too. So in the best scenario he hit one pair and is not willing to give up his equity. We also have an open ender.
What do you think about the raise???
He calls and we head to the turn.
It is blanco, do nit really remember but something like deuce.
He shoves on us and we have to tank.
What would you do in this situation with this information?
Why posting hands with .2c/.5c blinds and not convert them into 1/2 for us to make some sense what you're dealing with? The 1/2 game is universal and we don't have to deal with decimals. The big blind is 2x the small one without the stupid decimals for playing fraction of dollars. Or make it 2/5 to be easy on your brain, so you eliminate the (.) and the (c). You do this before going any further in your poker career?
You know, .. when you play .2c/.5c poker no one will take you seriously. That game is a kids video game and I bet you are not even 16y. ..., So, why not get a life before getting into gambling ...
Your line is fine. Personally I’m calling here when he shoves. No matter what he has we are live to a straight if he has us beat . If he happens to have us beat with 89 or something we can come back with many outs. If he’s lucky and has the JT then that’s just unlucky and we are hoping to chop. The villains’ image is leading me to a call.
