I usually raise with QQ, Kk, AA and you?


Depends on a lot of factors. If I am first in the pot, I raise with my entire range from those positions. This could be AQ+, 77+ from EP or it could be 78s from HJ. I stay balanced by 3betting these hands as well.

It’s great to raise these hands pre-flop, and you want your full raising range to be based on your position. The later your position, the more hands you play. And anytime you’re going to play a hand and your first in the pot, try coming in with a raise to stay aggressive! (Unless you’re in the small blind, in which case limping is often the best option.)

I also raise in such cases. Otherwise, you may get problems. With such good cards, I prefer an aggressive game.

Thank U 4 Posting

You may wish to study the concept of hand ranges. There are very good videos on the concept available for study.

If our villains see that we are only raising those hands, they can fold to all our raises or play in a way that minimizes the pot size we win and maximizes the pot size we lose.

As an example, if I know you only raise those hands I will only call when I have QQ-22 and then only build a pot versus you when I make a hand that beats 1 pair hands.

So often you will win 5-10bb pots vs me but I will be winning 100bb pots vs you or if you fold to often I will be stealing pots from you because I know you only have those hands.

Hope this helps

A raise should always be done if you are going to limit the number of players entering the game.

This is the main problem of poker - to correctly determine the size of your bet in order to squeeze out the maximum in case of a favorable outcome and lose at the minimum in the opposite case. If you raise only with QQ, KK, AA, then very soon you will be figured out and you will only win the blinds, and in the end the same blinds will eat up your entire stack. Good luck

I'm just at a loss why this post?, in order to find out who plays how and get the maximum notes. I think such questions are very stupid, fish-Hello

You can't do the same thing every time. This will have a bad effect later on in your game. Sometimes it is necessary not to show your high card. At least occasionally. This will confuse opponents.

I think you can raise with any hand, the main thing is to choose the right moment and the right opponent and not go deep into a crazy game when the opponent does not give up.:)

when you have a strong hand. Sets, two pair, flush, straight etc.

Of course don't raise them if they are just going to fold. high overall cbet% and wtsd% means you can raise them for value more loosely because they are stacking off light. So top top and bottom two you can then generally be raising.

On the flop, if I see my hand very strong, and I see that the opponent is trying to make a draw, I bet big, since an AA is useless against a flush or straight draw.

Well, if it's a cache then yes! Premium hands don't come around that often to be easy to shove and collect the blinds! And in MTT everything depends on the stack, position and stage of the tournament!

Hi Pilger,

If you are talking about preflop it depends on a few factors. Your hand, your position, the opponnts behind you and the action ahead of you. This video will give you some more insight.

For some example ranges (although they are a bit on the tight side) this video I made for cash game ranges will be one you likely find helpful

As for raising after the flop, well, you can do this if you believe you have the best hand AND your opponent will call that raise with a worse hand OR you can raise because you believe your opponent will fold to the raise often enough for your bet to instantly show a profit! (This video on aggression below dives a bit more into the topic :))
