Semi-Bluffing With Overs & Gutshot

Posted on

Should you semi-bluff with two overcards and a gutshot? Should you just call it instead? What even goes into determining these answers?

SplitSuit breaks it down through the lens of an interesting hand from Alex’s $1/$2 home game. Most players in this game overvalue their hands, which complicates things when he flops an big gutshot in a 5-way pot. Split focuses on 3 major things:

1. The preflop isolation size is too small
2. The flop CB, while standard in a HU pot, is not great in such a MW spot
3. The turn check/shove is likely worse than just check/calling
