And what is that range exactly on a 9 10 2 rainbow board? A set of 9s, 10s or 2s or JQ????

Re: 2/5 AK UTG

All of those hands are in his range. I think the most important thing to mention is most villains aren't going to bluff much here with air in a protected pot, so if they bet when checked to, it usually will be for value (There is a side pot here, so I think the decision is closer than if no side pot present--i.e. villain can show an almost immediate profit/freeroll the hand by getting hero to fold flop thus taking down the side) I guess there is something to be said about betting here to stop your opponent from bluffing, but I don't think it's worthwhile against your typical live villain in this spot. Occasionally they will "bluff" you off the best hand with something like JK, KQ, J8, Q8 etc, but it still imo isn't worth blindly jamming here. Again, I would rather jam pre if we intend to jam pretty much any flop. Otherwise we get in a sticky spot like this in a bloated pot oop.

Re: 2/5 AK UTG

I was utg at 1/2 today, open limped AcKc, UTG+1 raised to 15, got four callers, I popped it all in for 113 when it got back to me, raked in a nice little pot...

I don't think waiting for premiums while nursing a short stack just so you can open limp to steal dead money is the best approach to beating 1/2.

Re: 2/5 AK UTG

That's impressive. I've never seen a thread get necro'd twice with such long intervals.
