I understand and play the raising strategy as outlined in the WoO--taking a leap of faith on the more marginal hands. My question is--If you happen to "see" that one of the card that you are planning to raise with is in someone else's hand, would you continue to raise with marginal raising hands.
For example, you hold Q8 and you see a Q in another person's hand? What if you see two of your cards in someone else's hand? (Q8 and you see a Q in one person and an 8 in another person's).

We discussed it a few years ago in another thread. If I remember right, Wizard determined the only hands where your decision would change seeing one of your cards were 33 and 44, and to check A2, K5, and Q8 if you see TWO of your high card gone.

Thanks for the response. If I see TWO of my high card in someoneís hand(s) I would automatically check unless I have a really good hand (A10+, K10+, Q10+, etc). I am just curious as to how close a decision it would be to check as opposed to betting them.

You can also ask if anyone is holding one of your small pairs. But for me raising on my pairs Iím counting that my pair will be good, and hoping the board pairs.
