Tactical Tuesday Free Poker Training Video: Bluff Catching In Cash Game Poker: When Is Ace High Better Than An Overpair?

Tactical Tuesday Episode 109

Our newest installment in the Tactical Tuesday free poker training series features CPG Founder and Coach Brad Wilson with co-host Jon Chai as they dive into yet another pair of online cash game poker hand breakdowns focusing this time on bluff catching spots against the all-too-common all in jam by adventurous villains. With upper range hands in both situations, should Jon ever find a fold? And what about the properties of blockers when facing large river bets?

Our first poker hand up for review is from 1000NL where Jon finds himself holding Ace Ten suited in the small blind and decides to flat a reg’s open from the cutoff so as to keep the whale in the big blind in the hand. It doesn’t work, so we’re in for some reg on reg crime as we see a favorable flop.

The second poker hand up for analysis is Pocket Tens. Other than flopping a set, how are mere mortals supposed to play this hand? Just make sure all 5 cards come out lower than that — you’re welcome. If only it were that simple all the time, but in this instance, eyebrows are raised when the 3-Betting big blind triple barrel jams on the same board that favors hero. Is Jon about to get coolered by a higher overpair, which are all within villain’s range? An interesting case study in bluff catching and blockers / unblockers transpires in this hand as Jon plays for stacks yet again.
