Jonathan Little’s Weekly Poker Hand: Seems an Easy Hand to Play
  • In his "Weekly Poker Hand," @JonathanLittle analyzes how a player proceeds with top pair, flush draw.

  • It's top two pair vs. top pair and nut-flush draw in this cash game hand analyzed by @JonathanLittle.

Poker pro and coach Jonathan Little has been producing a wide variety of strategy content for poker players for some time, including authoring multiple books and sharing videos and articles on his website and elsewhere, much of which is free to players of all levels seeking to improve their games.

Little started his popular "Weekly Poker Hand" series on YouTube several years ago, and recently he decided to switch up the format to begin featuring footage from live small- and medium-stakes cash games.

In the episode shown below, Little breaks down another hand from a $5/$10 no-limit hold'em cash game played at Stones Gambling Hall in California.

In this hand, three players see a flop that hits all of them, giving one top two pair and the preflop aggressor top pair plus the nut flush draw. It might seem like an easy enough hand for the latter player to play, but as it happens things turn out a little differently.

Some of the concepts discussed in the hand analysis include:

  • preflop and postflop betting strategies
  • bet sizing
  • slow playing
  • equity
