it seems incredibly awful to ever bet this big here soooo...uhh im pretty much at the top of my range call? he reps 55(3), TT(3), JJ(1), Q9(16), 97(16) but I think we can defo discount 97/Q9 cuz he prolly just bets the turn bigger with that lol balance. he also never value bets worse like this cuz he clearly fears value cutting himself like every other ssnl reg out there. he's also opening OTB so his range is significantly wider in this spot than if he had opened in say, MP.
what do you guys think?
He has to be bluffing here ~35% to make a call break even. He's rarely going to be double barreling that turn card with air, so the only hands he will show up with on the river are missed draws: XsXs, KQ, 9x.
I wouldn't worry too much about getting exploited at 100nl with river over-bet bluffs.
jyms: Not a big fan of calling out of the blinds vs a BTN open w/AJo. Yea we are ahead of his opening range, but we are never hitting the flop enough to get paid by worse and it shows in this flop. We have the best flop we can hope for and still don't win anything.
vaks: I don't mind a call here in the blinds given reads. but typically this is a good hand to either fold or 3b preflop...
Anyone consider donking this flop? It shows a lot of strength but we know where we stand. And I would say this is a great place to donk the flop since I'm sure we are also donking here with sets?
pocketfours: Nothing wrong with pre jyms. I'd fold river.
caddie444: Don't necessarily like a 3B pre and don't like to fold = call pre is fine. I play it the same and shrug/fold now

Poker Article | Texas Holdem Poker Hands Position (Full Ring)
Out of all the strategic aspects at play in any given poker game, there is none more important than table position. Players who can manipulate the hand-to-hand shift in the betting patterns will have a greater chance to be successful, regardless of the cards in their hand. It is important to have a poker hands order, a set of starting hands which will dictate your action throughout each little skirmish.
With a full ring table, there are as many unique situations as there are seats. We'll tackle the most basic in this breakdown of poker hands, and the appropriate time for their use. Depending on your order in the rigid betting pattern, you'll need to take the strength of your cards into account. The later your position, the better you'll be able to gauge the strength of the table.
