So, let's get started!

Pot Odds


You are facing a rock-tight opponent. On the turn, the board is A♣10♥9♣2♦. The pot is 100$, and you have only 30$ more in your stack. Your opponent goes all-in and you put him on top pair or better.
With which of the following hands would you call?

Deep Stack Poker


You have an effective stack of 200bb and open-raise under the gun with A♦Q♠. You get called by a player in middle position and by the button. The flop comes A♣J♦7♠. There are about 10bb in the pot. You decide to make a c-bet of 7.5bb and the first player calls, while the button folds.

The turn is a blank, the 4♣, and with 25bb in the pot, you decide to bet 20bb. Your opponent raises you to 60bb. What should you do?

Pot Commitment


You are playing heads up against a tight opponent relatively short stacked. You 3-bet him preflop and he 4-bets all-in. At that point, you have committed 30% of your stack and estimate that your opponent has a tight, 10% hand range.
With which of the following hands are you obliged to call?

Three-Betting


You are on the big blind with J♠J♦. An unknown player raises from the cut-off to 3bb, what should you do?

Short Stack Poker


You are on the button with a short stack of 10bb and there are no antes. With which of these hands could you profitably shove all-in?

Limping in Poker


You are on the button in a weak, passive table. In front of you, four players have already limped in.
With which of these hands would you consider limping instead of raising or folding?

Pot Commitment


You are playing heads up against a tight opponent relatively short stacked. You 3-bet him preflop and he 4-bets all-in. At that point, you have committed 20% of your stack and estimate that your opponent has a tight, 10% hand range.
With which of the following hands are you pot-committed to call?

Three-Betting


Which of the following situation would favor a polarized 3-bet range like above meaning 3-betting with the top and bottom parts of your continuing hands (hands in blue) while calling with the middle hands (hands in green), over a merged 3-bet range?

Hand Ranges

The above is an open range of about 13% hands. Would you say it is a good open range from:

Implied Odds


You are facing an unknown opponent with position. You are holding K♥9♥, and the flop is A♥8♥4♠.
The pot is 100$, your opponent makes a c-bet of 75$, leaving him with 200$ more, and you have him covered. The pot is now 175$, what should you do?
