Spade 10NL: A25ss flop with KQs

SB stats:
38/23/0/62 VPIP/PFR/3bet/AGG% over 67 hands.


Hand History driven straight to this forum with DriveHUD Poker HUD & Database

NL Holdem $0.10(BB)
UTG ($8.69)
HJ ($1.34)
CO ($10.1)
HERO ($13.97)
SB ($23.24)
BB ($10)

Dealt to Hero K Q

UTG Folds, HJ Folds, CO Folds, HERO Raises To $0.35 (Rem. Stack: 13.62), SB Calls $0.3 (Rem. Stack: 22.89), BB Folds

Flop ($0.80) 2 A 5
SB Bets $0.8 (Rem. Stack: 22.09), HERO Raises To $2 (Rem. Stack: 11.62), SB Raises To $4.0 (Rem. Stack: 18.09), HERO Calls $2.8 (Rem. Stack: 8.82)

Spoiler:



The SB has been pretty aggressive at the table. My first raise on the flop is to build the pot because I believe I can get stacks in if I hit a spade, plus fold equity. Once he re-raises, I don't have the odds to call but believe that implied odds are there.

Feel free to give your thoughts and feedback on flop and all other streets.

Re: 10NL: A25ss flop with KQs

Preflop; size too big, but if blinds don't 3bet then actually it can be best to raise bigger as exploit (lower spr for KQ is generally good to stack off with good tps).

Flop: KQss is a good combo to just call the pot donk with. You aren't folding out much better, not getting called by much worse, and block his bluffs (say you have KTs or K9s he could have a worse fd).

He needs to be extremely unbalanced to make raising better (either he is folding way too much vs raise, and won't continue bluffing turn, or he is reraising way too much as a bluff even and your flop raise is a value raise).

Re: 10NL: A25ss flop with KQs

This worked because you hit your flush but what happens the times you don't (which are more common) is you just build a bigger pot that he wins. I don't think he's donking full pot with less than an ace (maybe a combo draw) and so raising doesn't accomplish too much. If he did have a bluff or a small pair you put him in a real tough spot on the turn when you just call imo because you easily could have an ace.

Re: 10NL: A25ss flop with KQs

I don't think we have a range advantage vs sb given his stats. He likely has all 2p and sets that we have including AA. I also doubt he is ever folding an ace, so raising is just to get him to fold 44 or 66 which i think we can do later by just flatting now. He can also be doing this with worse spades, so flatting and allowing him to stack off with spades is good.

I wouldnt worry too much about balance and just stick to dont bluff a fish.

Re: 10NL: A25ss flop with KQs

I probably just call flop with my whole continuing range vs. a PSB donk. Let's just keep ranges wide and let him hang himself with his air / hands he thinks are better than they actually are.

Call flop you don't have to many 55, 22, or AA to justify a raise. SB flats contain a lot of Aces.
