You are seated in the big blind with JJ and have 30 big blinds, seat 1 and 2 both limp and seat 8 raises from the button to 3 big blinds. What do you do?
Question 1 Explanation:
In this case you want to raise to about 7.5-8 big blinds because you have enough chips where you can get away from JJ if Seat 1 or Seat 2 Shoves all-in. Also, you want to isolate your opponent who raised from the button. If you just call you are giving the right price for Seat 1 and Seat 2 to call and you will be out of position after the flop. If an ace, king, or queen hits the flop you are stuck in the hand.
You are seated in the small blind with AQ suited and have 15 big blinds. Seat 7 raised to 2 big blinds and Seat 8 re-raised to 4 big blinds. Both players have been feuding with each other three betting before the flop throughout your session. What do you do?
Question 2 Explanation:
In this case you should recognize that the players are feuding and can have virtually any two cards. Shoving all-in is the best play in this scenario because if they can have any two cards, AQ should be a favorite against their hand ranges.
You are seated in Seat 5 with 20 big blinds and have 88. You minimum raise to 2 big blinds, Seat 7 calls, and the big blind shoves all-in. The big blind has been playing passively throughout. What do you do?
Question 3 Explanation:
You can call once in a while and have the best hand or be up against AK or AQ, but a larger majority of the time tight players will have 88 beat, so you have to fold and look for a better spot.
You are seated in Seat 2 with 25 big blinds, and have KK, you open for a minimum raise, Seat 3 Shoves all-in for 10 big blinds, and the small blind shoves all-in for 30 big blinds, and he has you covered. What do you do?
Question 4 Explanation:
You should almost never fold KK pre-flop and this is no different. There is only one hand out there that beats you and if he has it you have to pay him off for it. KK is such a strong hand in no limit games that it should never be folded before the flop.
You are seated in the big blind with 13 big blinds and have TT. Seat 5, Seat 6, and Seat 7 all limp in. What do you do?
Question 5 Explanation:
With that much money in the pot already you cannot risk checking and seeing the flop. Also, you don’t have a big enough stack to just raise, you have to shove in.
You are seated in seat 3 with 99 and are very deep stacked having over 100 big blinds. You are the chip leader at your table. You open for a raise, get called by seat 5 and three bet by seat 6 who has around 80 big blinds. What do you do?
Question 6 Explanation:
You call with 99 in this spot because if you make a set on the flop you can win a massive pot. If you miss the flop you can just check and fold your hand. You are getting the correct implied odds to call before the flop.
You are seated in seat 8 with 20 big blinds, the table folds around and you minimum raise with A10 suited. The small blind jams all-in and the big blind instantly jams all-in over the top. What do you do?
Question 7 Explanation:
This is one of the rare times you fold a hand that is a favorite over two random hands because even though you will be a favorite in the long run, this scenario implies that the big blind has a monster hand.
You are seated in seat 6 with 10 big blinds. Seat 1 and Seat 2 both limp in, you have AJ off suit. What do you do?
Question 8 Explanation:
The aggressive nature of poker tournaments should tell you that you cannot sit around and wait forever. AJ is at the bottom of your shoving range, but it is still correct to go all-in in this spot.
You are seated in seat 4 with AK suited, and 18 big blinds. What do you do?
Question 9 Explanation:
This is definitely a tricky scenario depending on your table image and what you think players are capable of doing behind you, but shoving all-in will avoid playing a pot out of position if you miss and also it allows you to win the hand without a showdown.
You are seated in the small blind with 20 big blinds and look down at AA. Seat 1 opens for a minimum raise and seat 8 calls. All stacks are around 20 big blinds. What do you do?
Question 10 Explanation:
In this case you could make a small raise, but if you do that you will basically tell the table that you have a monster pair. Unless your opponent has JJ or better you will not get called. By shoving you are saying that you have AQ or AK and just want to shove. You will get called most of the time by hands like 99+ or AK when shoving and it is the best scenario.
