This is a continuation of What’s Your Play? that began last week. For discussion of the pre-flop action, please see this post.
You’re at a 9-handed $2/$5 NLHE table with $600 effective stacks. UTG is very loose, especially pre-flop, and the whole table is salivating over him. UTG+2 is tight-aggressive bordering on nitty.
UTG limps for $5. UTG+2 raises to $20, and the action folds to Hero in the CO with Qs Ts. Hero raises to $50, UTG waffles a bit and then calls, and UTG+2 quickly puts in another $30.
Flop ($146 in pot after rake) Ks 8d 6d. UTG and UTG +2 both check without much hesitation. $550 remain in the effective stacks. Hero?
Leave a comment below with your thoughts and preferred action. I’ll do my best to respond to comments over the next few days and will post the next decision point next week.
