Default 2/4 Blind Battle w/ TPTK

This is the first hand I've seen opponent in.


PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $4 BB (4 handed) internettexasholdem.com

UTG ($426)
Button ($622.75)
Hero ($382)
BB ($418.70)

Preflop: Hero is SB with Q[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], A[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to $16</font>, BB calls $12.

Flop: ($32) Q[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], 3[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 7[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">Hero bets $24</font>, <font color="#CC3333">BB raises to $100</font> Hero??


Do I call or raise?

I vote for a call. This flop seems pretty dry, no? Besides the flush draw of course. I guess against an unknown this is a push but I would let him bluff the rest off with his eights on the turn.

Since you have the ace of spades, a spade turn isn't so ugly, so this can be a call against some opponents who fire the turn with air/midpair/weaker queen/draw. I'd call looking to CRAI on the turn most of the time. Without the ace of spades, I'd push the flop.

looks pretty dry to me. I dont think a single flush draw and a backdoor or two counts as wet

it's not wet, but it's not dry. a lot of gutshots, obviously flush draw + gutshots and so forth. there's also almost no way to make two pair unless the guy is really loose, so im pretty happy with bombs away.

your happy to shove because its hard to imagine two pair coming up? surely you'd be better to shove if the flop was QJ7 I can see more of case for calling/reevaluating on a flop like this.

The idea that somehow its better to get all in when your hand has much lower relative value seems a little backwards to me. DUCY?

the term "moist flop" should clear up any confusion.
