Fold pre

AP, without better reads than fit or fold... probably gotta call. Fit or fold can show up with KQ,KJ just as likely as QJ-boats, IMO (not combo wise, just in general).

Re: Live @ the bike 3/5 500 max

Either raise enough to get heads up or fold preflop. Raising is probably too expensive to be worth it. Flop and turn are fine. Bet/fold for $125-$150 on river is better then checking unless you have good reason to put 9X in his range.

As played, I probably call river. Pot odds looks to be a bit over 3-1 and your probably winning a little more often then that.

Bet fold river. Either raise to $25 to $30 pre or fold. I'd limp pre only if table was very loose and people were stacking off with top pair in limped pots consistently.
I recommend you raise to $25 with your entire UTG range to reduce callers And/or tighten up range significantly if you still get that many calls

Re: Live @ the bike 3/5 500 max

I agree with the raising more pre, I really need to pay more attention to my preflop open sizing. I decided to open because I think we were 7ish handed at the time. Still might be wrong but it really didn't seem too bad. I was just trying to get involved in pots because I had pos on some people who would call with worse and play really bad post. I should've included that in the op though

Re: Live @ the bike 3/5 500 max

Pre you should generally be folding, but I like the $15 sizing if table is fairly tight and nobody is 3betting light. Bet flop, bet turn, bet river. It's really that easy.

(assuming Ten on the flop is not a spade)

Re: Live @ the bike 3/5 500 max

I should have been more clear. The T on the flop is not a spade. For everyone saying that I should b/f the river can you explain how much and why? On the river he has about 230 behind. The pot is 385. How much are you advocating we b/f?

You think we should be betting 125-150 on the river and folding if he shoves for 80-105more?

Re: Live @ the bike 3/5 500 max

7 handed I think KTs is probably a hand you should open maybe a little less than 50% of the time. Obviously it's dependant completely on table. Why do people advocate raising enough to get hu pre? A lot of hands play well in multiway pots and we dont want to vay our open sizing. Also live people make massive postflop mistakes so going multiway isn't a bad thing.
