Nate and Andrew enjoy some “alone time” and answer listeners’ strategy questions (and a programming question) from the mailbag. Here’s the online MIT Computer Science Course that Nate recommended.
100 BB effective stacks
Dealt to Hero: Ks Ts
UTG folds, Hero (MP) raises to 3BB, Villain (CO) calls, BTN folds, SB folds, BB folds.
Flop: Qh 6s 4s (7.5BB)
Hero bets 5BB, Villain calls.
Turn: Td (17.5BB)
Hero checks, Villain bets 13BB, Hero calls.
River: Qs (43.5 BB)
Hero… checks?, Villain bets 27BB, Hero…?
I have JdJc UTG+1.
Folds to me and I raise to 15.Folds to main villain in CO who flats, SB folds, BB flats.
Flop ($50) 9c 7d 4s: SB checks, I bet $35, CO thinks not too long before calling, SB calls $35.
Turn ($155) 8h: BB checks, I check, CO seems like he’s about to check then grabs a stack of reds, counts $85 and pushes it forward. BB folds. I call.
River ($325) 3d: I check, CO bets $175.
