A couple of days ago I posted a relatively routine no-limit hand for discussion. I say it’s routine not because it isn’t important, but because it’s the type of situation that arises regularly. For reference, here’s the original hand.
I’m in the big blind in a $1-$2 6-max game with $200 stacks. I hold A Q .
A tight regular opens for $7 from two off the button. A loose player calls in the small blind, and I call in the big blind.
The flop comes A 9 6 . The small blind checks.
What are your goals for the hand? How do you plan things out from here? How does your plan in this hand fit in with your entire range of hands on this flop?
The discussion in the original thread was great, and there were a lot of different thoughts about it. There are numerous ways to play the hand and plenty of justifications for those ways. Here’s how I was thinking about the hand as I played it.
