the meaning of this forum is to make a specific hand situation and let the next persons analysis this hand and tell what action you would make and why. here the details:
i make in the topic a specific situation and people can analysis the situation. i also have an answer blurred below, it can be you disagree with the answer, but because some situations have multiple options the disagreeing is completely fine, the most important thing is that you thought about the situation and learn from it.
in each 5 posts (post 5,10,15,20 etc) you can answer but also make a new situation yourself, after that the analysis is all about that one. when you make a new situation use the same things as explained above. you can still answer about previous situations but you have to specificly quote them if you do.
look at the blue slide bar to the right of this forum to see when you can make a new situation if you want.
if a new situation is not made on the right post then stick to the previous one till the next 5 posts (when the new one should be made) the reason not to make another one after it is because it’s harder for the other people to find where the last situation is.
also if you make a hand, then try not to forget to add important information
there are no rules about the difficulty of the analysis hand
every analysis outside the question itself but is about the hand is optional but allowed
don’t read the blurred part before posting
so now the first situation, i’ll start with an easy one to get into it:
you are in a MTT, everyone has around average stack sizes, you are early in the tournament and the blinds are 50/100 and your stack is on 8000.
you are in the CO and look at QhQd. you decide to raise 3x the BB (300). the dealer and SB fold and the BB calls. you think the BB is a bit tight player but not really tight.
flop: Qs5h3c. the BB checks, you decide to slowplay and check.
turn: Ad. the BB bets 400. you still slowplay and just call.
river: 9s. the BB bets 1450, now it’s your turn what will you do and why?
answer: you have a monster and the only hands beating you are AA and 24. if he has 24 he would have folded preflop because he is tight, and if he had aces he would very likely be reraising (even if it’s just a little bit to get you calling or reraising). so you are almost fully sure you have the best hand by far. so reraising is the right thing to do (i would say about 3500, this way it’s very likely to let him call, if he don’t he would’nt anyway with 2900). the hand he probably have is a big ace.
