  • Tough Spot with 33

    Posted by arw on November 11, 2023 at 7:18 pm

    You’re playing a large tournament, in the money, and only 5 tables left. You have 3h3c in the bb and call a 2.5x pfr. You call a 1/2 pot sized bet on both the flop (Kh8h3s) and turn (Js). The river is the 9s and your opponent jams all-in for the full pot size.

    1) If the blinds are 1000/2000, how many chips did your opponent start the hand with?

    2) Which hands beat you? Which hands can you beat?

    3) Do you think this is a fold or a call?

    To answer question of opponents chip stack at the start of the hand, I made 3 assumptions:

    – Preflop raiser was not in the small blind.

    – There is a big blind ante.

    – The turn was checked through.

    After our preflop call, the pot includes the ante (1bb), the small blind (0.5bb), opponent raise (2.5bb) and our call (2.5bb). Pot is 6.5bb.

    The pot doubles after we call a 1/2 pot bet. Going to the turn, the pot is 13bbs. When the turn checks through the pot is unchanged.

    V pot bet on the river is 13bbs. V is all-in after making 3 bets: 2.5bb (preflop), 3.25bbs (flop), 13bbs (river). Total of V bets is 18.75bbs.

    For blind level 1000/2000, 1 bb = 2000 chips. 18.75bbs = 37,500 chips.

    Flop – 1/2 pot bet

    Turn – 1/2 pot bet

    River – full pot bet
