How to play Trips and Sets

Lessons learnt from Nottingham – DO NOT SLOW PLAY BIG HANDS

  1. Don’t call re-raises with trouble hands
  2. If you are going to go all the way with your draw get it all in and take the fold equity, don’t raise and call it off to lose to someone who would have folded top pair to your overshove.
  3. When you hit big hands bang the chips in on every street. Do not flop a set and check any street, aim to get your whole stack in on the river without an overbet. DO NOT SLOW PLAY BIG HANDS.
