Re: ***** Official Dumb Questions Thread ****

Hi there, first time poster and complete newbie to the game of poker. Apologies if the following question is too dumb even for a dumb questions thread, but here goes...

I'm using a hand range chart to learn how to act pre flop on NLHE 6Max. The chart tells me what to do when other players open raise and 3bet (based on my position versus their position).

Pre flop scenario:
SB - $1
BB - $2
UTG - Calls
MP - Folds
CO - Folds
BTN - Hero with A 9

Problem:
The chart doesn't tell me what to do if no-one has open raised but someone has called.

Questions:
  1. Generally speaking, when using such charts, should I respond to a call in the same way as I respond to an open raise, a fold or should a completely different response be taken?

  2. What would you do in this scenario?

Thanks for your help

I'm terrible at math and need some help with something I'm trying to figure out.

If someone were to play 100 $7 HUSNGs with each player paying $0.29 in rake each match how much would that player be losing if they finished ITM only 35% of the time? How about 40% and 45%?

@Nutwallace Go with your open raising chart in that spot, but make sure you raise bigger than usual. Rule of thumb is to add a big blind to 3bb for each limper (assuming online poker). So you'd raise A9o to 4bb in your example (assuming 100bb deep).
In theory you'd need to tighten up the raising range because your raise needs to go through an extra player but it's generally not necessary in practice. fwiw some would even advocate loosening it up but that's dubious imo.

lol at using the term ITM when talking about HU donkaments, the word "win" will suffice. Clarify whether you mean these are $7+0.29 donkaments or $6.71+0.29 donkaments

$6.71 + $0.29 - sorry about that.

Re: ***** Official Dumb Questions Thread ****

Hiya, was asked the following question:

You put your opponent on a low/medium pair. How many outs do you have to win?

Hole: A K
Flop: Q 10 2

Is it...

A) 6
B) 10
C) 12


(FYI the answer is given as 10 but I couldn't get to it).

Questions:
  1. Does "You put your opponent on a low/medium pair" mean you think your opponent has a low/medium pair? (Sorry ).

  2. If so, could you show me how it's 10 outs please?

Thanks as always!

Ahh, so that's 3 aces for higher pair, 3 kings for higher pair and 4 jacks for the straight, right?

Thanks mate!
