Today I’ve got another variation on the “What’s Your Play?” theme. I’m going to give you the play, and you have to give me the range with which you would make it. Of course for the sake of discussion, please give us your reasoning as well.
MP2 I’ve never played with before but he’s at a couple of tables and is probably decent, just a little too loose and a little too passive to be considered Tight-Aggressive.
BTN is a regular who often plays higher stakes than this. He plays a lot of tables at once and is smart but not the most aggressive/creative regular there is.
Hero (SB) ($1134.25)
Preflop: Hero is SB with X X
3 folds, MP2 bets $12, 2 folds, Button calls $12, Hero calls $9, BB calls $6
Flop: ($48) J, 8, J (4 players)
Hero checks, BB checks, MP2 bets $42, Button raises to $131, Hero raises to $1122.25 (All-In)
Note that I have both of these players covered by a wide margin. MP2 has about $650 behind, and BTN has about $462 behind, at the time that I shove.
So, what’s your range? We’re looking for two-card combinations here, so don’t just tell me “trips”- we want to know your kicker!
I’ll give everyone a few days to think and comment, and I’ll post results and my thoughts on Sunday.
