Nut low and set on a monotone board

Hand from yesterday, stakes are 5/10:

I have Ac3s4s4h on the btn, 2 limps to me and I limp, sb raises to $10, calls all around. Go to the flop 5 handed. Flop is 2h4h8h. Sb leads $5, HJ calls, I call.

Thinking back, maybe I should raise pre? I'm new to O8 and definitely a little shy about raising preflop.

Does anyone think I should raise flop? Am I automatically buckled in to showdown unless my low gets counterfeited?

Re: Nut low and set on a monotone board

I wouldn't raise pre with 2 limps in front of me. As for the flop I would donk this flop often. Raising is probably ok too but no matter what I am going to showdown nearly all of the time.

Re: Nut low and set on a monotone board

This hand isn't good enough to raise pre, especially since the ace is unsuited. There's about a 6% chance of getting delt an A2, but it's a good math problem to figure-out how often someone has an A2 if you already have an A3. I'd raise the flop though as you have scoop potential, and you're against two opponents. Your scoop potential outweighs your chances of getting quartered or counterfeitted, though I haven't run hard numbers on it.

Will do.


As for the hand i called to showdown and sb had Ah3h and hj had set of 8s, so I was quartered unless I hit quads.

Re: Nut low and set on a monotone board

Limp preflop is typically better than a raise, especially without being suited to the ace

I would raise the flop here very often and rarely delay it until the turn, there is a high chance we have the only nut lo and even vs better hi hands like a flush we have plenty of outs to scoop

Another reason to raise is protection, opener would normally cbet with a hand like ahac5skd, we can get scooped if a 3 hits, etc

Re: Nut low and set on a monotone board

When you have nut low, don't get too excited when there are a few still in the hand, unless they have proven to call and stay with anything. The only thing worse than getting quartered is getting sixth'd or eighth'd or tenth'd. If the board shows a wheel, there is a chance everyone will share low.

When you get more experience, you will get a feel for who has high or low. When you have the nut high (that can't be shared) on the river, that is a good time to raise.

Re: Nut low and set on a monotone board

I like flatting pre, but flop is an auto raise.

Even if they are pretty strong, the numbers look good for us. The only exceptions are going hu against ah3h** or a388 of course. But there should be enough in the pot by then to risk a potential 40/60 flip hu anyway. There's already $60 in there before we act on the flop. Just flatting may be good also, if you want to try and keep as many as possible in on the later streets for the bigger bets.
