A Few Refinements for UTH Basic Strategy
I’ve been doing fine playing UTH over the last two weeks, and I’m also finding Six Card Dealer Bluff fun and fair to play. I’ve noticed that in UTH I often have a decision to call at the river with 2nd nut kicker on an unpaired board. It looked at little weird to call sometimes, especially against a board with a possible flush. So I tried out a few cases, and found that I shouldn’t call with 2nd nut kicker unless there was no possible flush, or if both my cards played. I updated this to the main Ultimate Texas Hold’em page, and the basic strategy card.
I also checked that calling 1x with 5th nut kicker against a double-paired board is okay, as long as the pairs are 7′s up or better. Otherwise, for 6′s up, you need 4th nut kicker to call.
Finally, I found that on the flop, you can bet 2x with nut kicker, as long as you have a gutshot straight draw.
