Matt's Musings #3

The only thing min-raising does is slowly build a pot that you will not win.

  • Wise words indeed! I love playing players who min raise and hate it when players make proper raises to deny draws!

  • ya minbetting is bad. minreraising is not so bad late in an MTT when the blinds are HUGE.

    example:
    call a preflop bet in the cutoff, preflop bettor c-bets a ragged flop, you minreraise him, he calls, he check folds the turn after your bet.

    it's surprising how many pots you can take down with that stupid little minreraise.

    i don't do it often but, when the blinds/antes get big and your heads up against someone who can fold, it's not a bad play.
