Poker Strategy: Flopping Top and Bottom as the Preflop Raiser

Poker Strategy Info And Source:

Garlin calls in today with a flopped top and bottom two pair after being the preflop raiser. The BB puts a lot of pressure on him all the way through the river. Will he call down with top and bottom when nothing changes?

  1. She "blocked" the nuts, plus apparent nit image comes into play…good bluff from her

  2. Having thought about this hand, it occurs to me that I almost never see a player check raise the flop then lead, lead the turn and river with a nut hand. KQ seems less likely for that reason. I might expect 78 and the sets to take this line though. Those hands are quite concerned about getting some protection on the early streets.

  3. Bart, serious question. I am by no means a feminist, but I question when people say , oh it's a female playing the hand as if to infer they shouldn't be taken as serious as a man. In physical sports of course, but in a mental game like poker, is there really a difference?

  4. This river call is completely player dependent. Don't know the player? Fold. MDF is complete bunk science at 1/2, 1/3, and 2/5. If you know the player it could be a call. Depends on the okayed. Know your players.

  5. Small flop bet induced the spazz. Bet 2/3 pot on the flop to prevent this.

  6. If she said “show your set” and I hadn’t folded, I’d instantly call.

  7. Since we under-bet the flop and got raised (losing our initiative), would it be overly ambitious to consider raising the turn (I'm guessing we might still be playing 5th street chicken)?
