Trip Aces Facing a River Bet… What do you do here?

DECISION POINT:  The UTG player raised preflop, MP2 calls, you call with A♣5♣ and the other players fold. The flop comes A♥A♦4♣. UTG and MP2 check and you bet. UTG calls and MP2 folds. The turn is the K♦. UTG checks, you bet, and UTG calls. The river is the Q♠, and UTG shoves all-in. Action is on you, what do you do?

PRO ANSWER:  In this hand, we flopped trips with a bad kicker and bet both the flop and turn. Our opponent, after check-calling our bets, now moves all-in on the river. We are getting over 3-1 pot odds on a call. In order for a call to be profitable, we need to have at least 23% equity in this hand.

Given that our opponent check-called two streets then moved all-in on the river, we can assign them a range of hands that consists mostly of hands they are betting for value. Bluffs are far less likely given this action. Also, it is unlikely that our opponent is value-betting any hands worse than trip aces. Therefore we are either chopping the pot with another trip aces, or they have us beat with a full house.

Given that they raised from early position, the number of combinations of trip aces is lower than if they had raised from a later position. In fact, if we assume this opponent has a range of QQ+, 44, ATs+, ATo+ (pocket pairs QQ or bigger, pocket 44, or all broadway aces), then we only have around 17% equity in this hand. We lose the hand around 65% of the time and chop around 35% of the time.

Since we are only chopping at best and often losing this hand, folding this river is the best play, despite us having trip aces

Your 2017 Poker “Resolution-Starter” Guide!

It’s time again to turn the page and look ahead to a brand-new year full of possibilities!

How are you planning on making your poker game better in 2017?

If you’re like most players you’re not quite sure where to begin.

If you want to start 2017 on the path to improvement, I recommend following this list of Poker Resolutions:

1. Make sure my Preflop Raises are sized big enough to thin the field to one or two opponents.
2. Begin using Board Texture to guide my Postflop decisions.

I can’t stress enough how critical it is to apply these two concepts before you start trying to make any other changes to your poker game. These two ideas are so important that we want all of our Members to have watched them before they even join LearnWPT!

Now, if you’re a more advanced player and you already have those two concepts down, I’d recommend you add this Resolution:

3. Limit my Preflop Calling to situations where I:
a) have a speculative hand

b) will be entering (not creating) a multiway pot
c) can call for less than 5% of the effective stack

If you’ve already made all three of these “starter” resolutions part of your game, then a Membership with LearnWPT will be the easiest and fastest way to start adding more levels of complexity and nuance to your game.

Do you play Cash Games? If so, LearnWPT will be running a 2-Day Cash Game Strategy Workshop at Borgata in January. LearnWPT Live Training Events are the fastest, most comprehensive, and most fun way to radically change the way you play poker.

So what are YOUR Poker Resolutions for 2017? Post your answers in the comments below because it helps to write your resolutions down… and you may help another player realize what they need to be focusing on!

Here’s to making winning decisions in 2017!
