Tom McEvoy's 20 Questions
-- Omaha Hi/Lo Split
You are dealt A-3-8-9 of mixed suits under the gun. The game is loose and fast with a lot of pre-flop raising. What is the best play?
You are in middle position with A-2-3-4 with the Ace being suited. Nobody has entered the pot. What is your play?
Raise to try and win the blinds
Call and try to get weaker low hands to enter the pot cheap
You have the same hand as in question 2 but this time in late position with several callers in front of you. What now?
Call--you can't force anyone out with a raise
Fold--all the low cards must already be out
You have A-2-7-9 in late postion with no suits. There have been 3 limpers in front of you. Nobody behind you looks like they are going to raise. What is the best play?
Raise--Nobody else raised in front of you so you might have the only A-2
Fold--your side cards are weak
Call and take a cheap flop but be prepared to abandon ship quickly if you have a draw to the nut low and a raising war breaks out in front of you
There is one rule that if obeyed in full ring games will either make you extra money or save you extra bets. Which of the following statements most likely fits this rule?
Never draw to less than the nuts for either high or low after the flop.
In a raised pot before the flop that has only one low card in it. It is always correct to take a card off and try to back-door the nut low.
If you flop the nut low and cannot be counterfeited it is okay to slowplay.
The flop is 3-4-6 with two hearts. You hold an A-2 in your hand and have two face-cards with no hearts. Four people are in this pot and it is capped at 4 bets--you are the 5th person and are last to act. What is you best play?
Call you know you are getting some of this pot no matter what your opponents have.
Fold--there is probably one or more Ace Deuces out already and probably a made straight, so you will get only 1/4 or less of this pot unless you are very lucky.
You hold Aces with a 6-7 double suited in late position. There are already two raises in front of you and it is likely to get capped. What is your best play?
Cap it yourself
Call to disguise the strength of your hand
Fold, realizing that the other Aces are probably already in someone else's hand and there are better low draws than yours also flush draws only occur a small part of the time in your suit, even if you have two suits to draw to.
You have the same hand in question 7 and are in late position with just one limper and the blinds still to act. You should:
Raise to try to get head up against the limper
You have 2-3-K-Q under the gun what is your best play?
A solid player in early position raised with a queen up. A king folded before you and you have buried jacks with an ace showing. What is your play?
You are dealt 9-9-8-7 double suited in late position. There have been several limpers what is your play?
You have 4-5-6-7 with one suit in middle position with two limpers. Your play is?
You have K-Q-J-9 with one suit it has already been raised once with aggressive players still to act behind you. Your Play?
Same hand as question 13 but no raises and you are on the button. Your best play is?
You are in the big blind with A-2-4-5 with a suited Ace. There have been no raises and several limpers. Your best play?
Just call and see the flop for free
Raise to build the pot with the probable best low draw and good high potentential if it comes a low flop
You have 3-4-5-5 under the gun. What is your play?
You have 5-6-7-7 no suits on the button with several limpers and no raises. Your play?
You have 2-3-4-5 with one suit with this hand in a raised pot you should do what -- assuming it will cost only one raise to play before the flop.
Re-raise--after all you have 4 wheel cards
Fold there are probably at least one player with an A-2
Call and play with caution after the flop if you do not have good high potential and there is no ace on the flop
You are in a wild game that sees nearly every pot capped both before and after the flop. How should you play?
Tighten up and only play premium hands.
Loosen up and get in their and gamble with your opponents--it only takes one or two monster pots to make up for your loose calls.
Play a little more conservative than your opponents before the flop and don't gamble with hands that are drawing to less than the nuts after the flop.
You have A-J-9-6 with a suited Ace in the small blind. Nobody has raised and there are 5 callers. Your play is?
Call and see a cheap flop but abandon ship if you don't get a very favorable flop.
