Ep 246 – Forum on Monotone Flops (@FiveByFive)

This week, Jim Reid leads the panel through a forum post by our own @FiveByFive! While battling it out against each other in the nightly home game, the panel looks at five different types of hands we might find ourselves with in the big blind when we see a monotone flop and it checks through to the turn. Which will we lead with, which play better as checks, and which of those will call a bet and which should we be shoving with? Lots of great questions and even a couple of answers!
