PokerPlayer’s cash game expert Ross Jarvis tests out your poker skills with this tough hand from a recent online session
- GAME: Six-max online cash game
- STACK: $203
- BLINDS: $1/$2
This hand comes from an online cash game session I played recently. An aggressive player in the cut-off raises to $6 and I three-bet on the button with pocket Aces to $18. The blinds both fold and the initial raiser calls to see a 5♦-T♦-9♣ flop.
The Villain checks to me and I bet $22 into a $39 pot. The Villain then check-raises to $47 and I have a decision to make. I can definitely fold, call or raise all-in at this stage, but eventually elect to call. The turn is the T♥ and the Villain checks for a second time. There is $133 in the middle and I have just over a pot-size bet left – $138. What should I do? If I bet, how much should I bet and why? If I am checking what is my plan on the river?
