Adding Equity To Mediocre Hands You Play Post Flop


In multi-way action, it is prudent to stick to top percentile hands from UTG post-flop. If you wish to play mediocre hands, you need to consider a few things.

When do you choose to play mediocre hands

  1. Opposition type – is he loose / tight / passive?
  2. How deep is he? How deep are you?
  3. What is your position in the hand late or early?
  4. Can you go 2 – 3 streets of bluffing if need be?

If you know the answer to these questions you are ready to play a wider range of hands. What are hands that one should instantly trash from UTG? Wrong hand selection without a plan or knowing the answer to the above four questions might land you in trouble. Minimizing your mistakes to make more profitable play is important and is the way to go. Check out the book called PLO 6 – 50 Mistakes That I Have Made to understand common mistakes made in PLO 6

Playing non-nutted holdings in PLO 6

Under normal circumstances, the following hands can be trashed

  1. Not connected pairs like Tens, Jacks, Queens look good, but can be avoided, if they are not going along with connectors and high suited aces.
  2. Connectors like 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and below can be avoided as they get suckered by higher connectors.
  3. One, two gapper Jacks and below.

If say you have a plan or want to execute a play with a mediocre hand, you need to have a plan before the flop. And you should have the answer to the above four questions.

Know the following if you wish to play mediocre hands

  1. Opposition type – is he loose / tight / passive? – Tighter the better, lower WTSD score
  2. How deep is he? How deep are you? – Deeper the better, lower the chances of hand going to showdown
  3. What is your position in the hand late or early? – Late the better, gives you added equity
  4. Can you go 2 – 3 streets of bluffing if need be? – One round of betting on early street might not be enough. You can go with bet-bet-bet, bet-bet-check, or bet-check-bet to successfully execute a bluff.
