Essentially you want to know if your kicker tips the scale when the 21 outs is the situation. A king is a given, always call if that is in your hand. Then for what I will call the rundown method, the first over card or pair will mean a queen is a call, then you go to a jack, etc.Quote: Wulfgar1224
My cards were 10H and 3S. I get that it is too weak to make the big raise so I checked.
The flop was 6H 7C 6C. I didn't have a hidden pair ,4 to a flush or two pair, so I checked again.
The turn and river were KH and JD. Here's how I counted the outs. 4 Aces, 3 Kings, 4 Queens, 3 Jacks, 2 6s, and 3 7s. I get 19 outs there. So, my instinct was to call that. Was that the proper thinking according to the simple strategy? I understand it is a close call and the EV on perfect strategy might say to fold. Any thoughts?
My cards: 9S 2S....Check
Flop: 7D 8D QC...Check
turn and river: QD 7S
A very decent, very quick-n-easy strategy. Good job.
If the average Joe played this way, the game would be played better than the way the general population currently plays it.
I'd play any Ace and King kicker in my hand as well. And for each of those on the board, drop down another rank if it's in my hand.
With an ace in your hand you should have already made a 4x bet.
