Hands of the Week: Flatting the Button in a Cash Game

This is a common spot you’ll find yourself navigating in a cash game.

In a Cash Game with 100 big blind stacks, the cutoff raises to three big blinds and you call on the button.

You have a capped calling hand range for this spot and your opponent has a standard opening hand range for the cutoff seat.

This model shows a common spot where you are in position against a tough opponent on the flop after you flat call in late position preflop.

To maximize your expected value, you must learn to exploit your positional advantage, both in terms of exercising pot control and knowing when to bluff due to blocker effects.

Because your preflop hand range is capped, you will rarely have an equity advantage on the flop and therefore passive flop lines will often be correct.

To see more examples and test your skills, you can play through five solved random hands from this scenario.
