Sixth Street

1. If you are in the hand this far, do you usually remain to see the last card?
    -->   Yes.

2. When would you fold on sixth street?
    -->   You made a marginal call on fifth poker street and the cards broke badly.

3. Can this be put another way?
    -->   It would normally be correct to throw your hand away on sixth street if you may be drawing dead?

4. When else is it correct to fold on sixth street?
    -->   If you are not getting good enough odds to catch the one cards that can win.

5. What else is important on sixth street?
    -->   The ability to read hands.

6. What are the three factors in determining the probabilities that your opponent has paired?

    Mathematical if an opponent shows three low cards and you believe he started with three babies it is about even money he has a pair. With four low upcards it is about 70 percent for one pair and 20 percent for two pair.
  • The cards that are out.
  • The way that the hand has been played the most important.

7. If your opponent has been betting with the much better board then how do you read his hand?
    -->   Use poker mathematics.  His bets are automatic in this case so there is no other way to read him.

8. Suppose on fifth street you bet a 7-5-2 and your opponent calls with J-6-4.  What does he have?
    -->   You can be fairly sure that he has a four-card six.

9. Now on sixth street he catches a baby, what should you do if you are only drawing to a seven?
    -->   There is a good chance that you are now drawing dead and should fold.

10. What is an exception to this?
    -->   If the cards that are out indicate that he has paired his sixth card and also may make it fairly easy for you to make a seven.

11. Another exception?
    -->   There is a lot of money in the pot.

12. Suppose the order of your cards was 5-J-7 and the order of his cards was 6-4-3, is it possible for him to have two pair?
    -->   Yes, because your board would keep him poker betting.  Thus you should probably call his bet with a smooth seven draw.

13. If yours is the stronger board and you know that you have the best hand, should you bet?
    -->    Usually.

14. Example?
    -->   You have J-7-5-3 and your opponent has J-7-6-4, you usually bet a made seven-five.

15. What if you think that your opponent has a pair in this spot and will fold if you bet?
    -->   It may be correct to check.

16. Is it correct to sometimes check your seven-five no matter what your opponent may have in the about situation.
    -->   Yes.

17. Why is that?
    -->   Many players will throw away their pair but bet if they have a made seven-six.
