Recently I was playing in a fairly loose $2-$5 live no-limit game. An early position player with about $300 limped. I was two off the button, and I made it $20 to go with A K . The button, with about $325 total, made it $75 to go. He was an unremarkable, if slightly loose player. The limper thought for a while and then called. I had both players covered.
- How should I respond? Should I fold, call, raise a bit, or move all-in?
- What’s my plan for the rest of the hand (should I need one)?
Answer those two questions for yourself before you read on.
I’ll tell you what I did.
