NO FREE INTEL It’s almost always a mistake to show your hole cards after you’ve bluffed a win. Why let your opponents know if you stole the pot or won it with a premium hand? It’s knowledge they can store for another game and you can live without letting them have that kind of intel for free.
CARD SCHOOL QUESTION
Here’s a chance to test how well your game is developing. It’s a $15-$30 game and you are the big blind with king of hearts and queen of diamonds in the hole. The first player limps and the next raises. You and the limper both call. At the flop it’s seven of diamonds queen of clubs and ace of spades, landing you a pair of queens. The situation is checked to the raiser, who bets. Your decision is to call along with the limper. Up comes the turn with a ten of spades offering the chance of a gut-shot draw. All the players check. Last card at the river is two of diamonds. You bet, the limper raises and everyone else folds to the limper’s raise. What’s your next move? The Card School answer is below. Figure out your own answer before checking our advice.
CARD SCHOOL ANSWER With everyone checking the turn it made your pair of queens look reasonable, so you bet the river. However, the early limper is probably a wolf in sheep’s clothing. As the two of diamonds at the river amounted to nothing why is the limper raising like a mad man on such a no-hope last card? Most likely he checked the turn expecting the pre flop raiser to bet. The odds are on the limper having at least aces and maybe even a straight. The answer to the card school question is you fold at the river and don’t waste anymore money.
