Below are a few razz hands from a tourney I played in last night. For those few of you who get into that particular game, I'm interesting in knowing whether you think I should have played any of them differently, given the stack sizes, antes, etc. Should I have folded? Or raised a completed bet on 3rd street? While I'm leaving the results in where it makes sense to (the one hand that all in pre 7th street), please disregard the result.

Mondo as you may know I play a little Razz.... I will look over these later as I have class in about an hour and am just looking around right now. I will try to go over these hands in detail later but for now the few I have looked out look pretty standard.

The only reason I think this hand is playable is because you need to make a move at some point and your 4 is paired twice and your 2 once therefore reducing your chances of pairing later on in the hand. On the bad side there are quite a few cards you need out like the 3,7, and 8 which all could win the hand later down the road for you. Here I don't mind the limp, and I think calling the complete is okay as well. I mean you really have no choice at this point and a raise changes nothing, I really dont like playing a high card in the hole unless I have good position on 3rd and can play HU but then I bring it in for a raise and obv hope my opponent bricks and I catch good or at least better. In the future I would say don't do this too much, play solid hands up front, steal with bad ones with a good door card in position on 3rd. Lets see 4th.

Okay. You can think about raising as I think paydragon has a high card in the hole. Notice how he called the bring on 3rd? Isolate, you are probly behind but you stand a better chance HU. farve might not fold but either way you A) get it HU which can only be good at this point or B) dude calls, and you are now in a bigger pot if you win or C) farve folds, dragon raises and you know you are screwed but at least you knew before the river, that will teach you to limp with a K in the hole.. great card for you and bad card for farvefan although he could be really good in the hole but two bets could get him out and you want that as he probobly has the best hand. Again I don't know if I make this move if I have chips because there would be little reason to get involved with this hand on 3rd street.

WOW what a lucky nice draw... If I play a hand like this I am raising on 3rd for a few reasons:

1) To take the pot right here. Normally in this situation someone that is not going to happen but somebody told paydragon it was a good idea to slow play so that changes things..

2) To gain information. I think farve woud have re-raised as he played pretty aggro and then you can get away. again your stack comes into question... Can you afford to play this hand? Can you afford not too? If it is the latter you should have been raming and jamming. You can't get away from this hand if you do call so you should be raising if you decide to play it at all.



I had no idea paydragon was capable of limping with that huge hand. I guess some people like to slow play in razz. I for one dont. You got SUPER lucky in this one. Still nh. I could also play it the way you did, I was just pointing out a different path you cald have taken with this hand although I think I fold this on 3rd almost all of the time. A J or a T in the hole can change this slightly.

NH --- Also I am in a hurry. I have been meaning to get to these hands for 2 days but between work, school, and a prego girlfriend I have suprisingly little time. I will try to get to the rest soon. Also don't take my word as gospel, I have leaks and have not been playing much Razz lately. By going over these hands we all get better.

Post  Mondogarage on Fri Feb 01, 2008 3:11 pm

I really appreciate your read on this hand. I actually thought about raising that hand on 3rd, but thought I wouldn't get any folders, and would have considered myself pot-committed unless I totally bricked 4th, in which case I'm out for over 1/4 of my chips only to fold on 4th. If I have a healthy stack, I think I either raise or fold there, and not call, but yeah, I think as soon as I saw 3rd, I looked at it as "not 100%, but probably where I make my stand".

On 4th, I knew then I wasn't going to fold, which meant I was trying to maximize pot size there. I now believe my thinking there was wrong, but I ruled out raising, because I knew all my chips would be in by 6th street anyway, and if I'm going to be all in, why not try to get more of their chips in, anyway. Again, I guess this wasn't aggressive enough thinking, but since I decided I didn't want them to fold at this point, why invite them to?

Obviously, my boat is leaky like that. But I don't play that hand like that later in the tourney, if I have a real stack. There, I raise on 3rd probably 75% of the time, and 100% of the time on 4th, with those cards out there.

The real lesson I got here was to consider folding on 3rd. I see your logic, given the cards out there, and yet never considered it in the actual spot. Thanks a bunch.

olenaner is most likely ahead here. Yes you caught a pretty decent card here but I don't like this spot, considering you put yourself in it. I use the hand you are playing on 3rd as a raising hand and try to steal the antes. Here you are going to 5th street next and you still won't have the best hand no matter how good you catch. This is why I don't like pairs, espesially calling a completed bet with one. You could make the argument that this is one of the best pairs you could have but that means nothing if one of your opponents already has an ace, then having the 2 aces here only makes thier hand stronger. Also he could pair but he doesn't. Doubt he paired due to the other open 3, I don't like raising here too much but you could if for nothing else information i.e. he re-raises you fold while the betting is still cheap.

What can I say, you are catching about as good as you could hope for, just know that he could have board lock on you at this point. You are in a scary place now. We do have some info. The chance that he paired his 3 is slightly lower since we have one. We also know there was another 5 out. doubtful he started with a pair of fives. Other than that all we are beating is a rough 7 IF we hit. I mean you have gone this far, can't look back, 5th is the street we decide this on.

Now we need a 5 to maybe win and a 6 can lose the pot. we have in effect 3 outs (the fours in the deck, one is open in his hand) and that is if he does not have a wheel or a made 6 not to mention he can still draw to a better hand on the next card just like you. The problem started when you began the hand with a pair.

I honeslty usually call here. You would be surprised how many times the villain will turn over 3 pair or something ugly like that. There was too much in the pot to fold. I mean of his 3 unknown cards he just needs one under 9 to beat you not to mention he can have a 9 better than yours as well so I guess it goes either way. still I do think you win 1 time in 8 here. I just say that from experience, I have no math to back that up, but I call here.

This is exactly the kind of advice I was looking for. I often struggle putting people on having three to the nut in those spots, because I'd expect a completed bet to be raised there. I really screwed the pooch by playing it at all, since up to four of my drawing cards were already out, and I needed to hit 3 of 4 to come. Guess I fell in lust with the fact that my pair was so low. Thanks.

I dont like the call already. You have to think that at least the guy completing has a big hand, the fact that someone calls here causes me to put this in the muck. I muck unless I can call only the bring in.

olenaner is most likely ahead here. Yes you caught a pretty decent card here but I don't like this spot, considering you put yourself in it. I use the hand you are playing on 3rd as a raising hand and try to steal the antes. Here you are going to 5th street next and you still won't have the best hand no matter how good you catch. This is why I don't like pairs, espesially calling a completed bet with one. You could make the argument that this is one of the best pairs you could have but that means nothing if one of your opponents already has an ace, then having the 2 aces here only makes thier hand stronger. Also he could pair but he doesn't. Doubt he paired due to the other open 3, I don't like raising here too much but you could if for nothing else information i.e. he re-raises you fold while the betting is still cheap.

This is exactly the kind of advice I was looking for. I often struggle putting people on having three to the nut in those spots, because I'd expect a completed bet to be raised there. I really screwed the pooch by playing it at all, since up to four of my drawing cards were already out, and I needed to hit 3 of 4 to come. Guess I fell in lust with the fact that my pair was so low. Thanks.
I am not a big fan of a lot of action on 3rd street. I like to wait until 4th or 5th to start re-raising MOST of the time. I am not saying there are not times for a 3rd street re raise I am saying that the times for the 3rd street raise can be pretty rare. Mainly when you are pairing many of your opponents up cards and you have a good hand with 3 wheel cards and there are few if any cards that you need open, I might rr here as I am unlikely to pairand I have clean outs.

Sharing outs is a concept in lowball nobody ever talks about. It is very important. The reason shared outs matter the most in lowball is that everyone is going for the exact same hand. Where in a traditional high card game one guy might need a 4 for a full house and some guy might need a club for a flush and some guy might need a K for a straight, in lowball you might have 1 guy needing a 5 that 3 people already have. Do you see what I am saying? Your paired aces help him IF he has an ace. Against 2 opponents I have to think the chances are high that there is an ace in one of thier hands.

I like the call. You have a sweet draw, olenanner has an open pair and you have a 2 so this is an allright place to try and let others in the pot.

Nice hand. Played well, Standard. (other than the fact that you caught good, that is not standard for me at all Razz )
