This is a discussion on What is the best time to Check Raise? within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Hey guys,
I usually check raise a flopped set OOP to build the pot. I read and heard that it is good to have check raise
I would say anytime you have a very strong hand. Since you're OOP with check-raising you need to make sure your protected if v comes back and reraises your raise, so probably not doing this with small pairs or draws.
I have great bankroll management, it started at $0 and it's still at $0
It all depends on how many players are involved in the hand, remember that 3 or 4 players involved in a hand is easy for someone to hit something on the flop, so never bluff against 3 or 4 players involved in a hand. Against 1 player it is always good to raise the flop even if you don't hit anything on the flop, but if the opponent shows resistance, you have other strategies in mind to be applied on the turn and river.
I like check Raising some strong draws on the flop they usually make a cbet that miss the flop with probably overcards like AK missing the flop also might force some mid pairs to fold with this and combined with strong hand on the flop like a Set or Two pairs and some flushes it might be my range to make check raise sometimes check-push
I feel like check raise OOP has to be consistent with following action, as you give away the betting lead to raise and have it back representing a strong hand or draw, on the turn you might have to lead the bet to not show weakness (unless you already have the nuts), if you keep checking it on following action, opponent can keep being aggressive and you'll have to fold.
Sometimes check raise can save you an expensive bet on the turn when you're not first to act.
Of course that's all theory and there's no absolute procotol, depends on what kind of table you're in, how the players are, etc.
You raise with Tens, jacks, queens and miss the flop. Let them put chips in first and then put the hammer down. Don't wait around for A or K to come. Take your preflop raise and their raise and run. Without a chance to lose.
Don't check - raise because you want to show your strong hand. It is important. Otherwise, you will not get a large number of chips from other players.
There are three techniques in my piggy bank. But they are top secret. So I will share just one. You go into the flop and get an unreadable improbable hand. Make a check on all streets and let your opponent always bet 1/2 or a full pot. When the river opens and he gets a flush, for example, he will be so happy that he will give away all his chips, forgetting that you can have a full house on the flop.
