This is the last episode where Ben is captain of the show (we’ll have a new host on soon!). And it also features a Home Game hand where I make Ben look like a fool as well as a crazy live game hand between Phil Ivey and Paul Jackson.

More than enough to get excited about, so get ready for another great episode!

1 Overcard on a Paired Board – PPP#26

It’s time for another edition of the Postflop Poker Podcast!

In this Christmas episode, we’re continuing with the theme of a paired flop. This time though, we have only 1 overcard to the board. So we’re drawing thin and don’t have a lot of equity.

Normally we shouldn’t be interested in playing a huge pot with a hand like this. Although there could be occasions where we can seize profitable bluffing opportunities on paired boards that are very dry.

How to Butcher an Overpair

An overpair is a great hand, especially if you're holding a big pair like Q-Q, K-K, or A-A.

In low stakes games against bad or mediocre opponents, the best strategy when flopping an overpair of Queens, Kings, or Aces is usually to play it fast. You want to get some value from your hand and making decent sized bets on 2 or 3 streets is usually the way to go.

While overpairs are easy to play in many situations, there are also plenty of ways to totally butcher them!

That's what happens in the following hand played at the WSOP Main Event. Overpairs should not be fast-played in all situations. In this case, it ends up being a rather big mistake, potentially costing a few million dollars.

2 Overcards on a Paired Board – PPP#25

It’s the Silver Edition of the Postflop Poker Podcast! Episode 25. Time flies.

Even though it normally would be a reason for celebration, our show host Scott unfortunately has left the show. We’re sad to see him leave, but at the same time it will give Ben and me all the freedom to do whatever we want. I’m not sure whether we deal with that new freedom in the right manner, but it sure is an interesting episode this time.

The theme of today’s show is two overcards on a paired board.
