Your tanking in a live 1/2 game for a 75 dollar pot with pot 390. With a set? Probably not raising it the way you played it but im instacalling the 75 at the very least. I dont slowplay flopped sets live you get value most times anyway. I would have lead out 75 on Flop. ALso maybe limp behind pre flop. 12 is a small opening raise in most live 1/2 games ive played never mind being the raise after 3 limpers... I dunno. What do I know.
Call if you think he was betting a flush or str8 draw.
If you think he might have 2-pair, shove. You usually only get called when you are beat.
Beware the limp re-raise pre flop. Except at 2:00 AM with a 4:00 AM closing. Lot's of hands get overplayed by the degenerates desperate to not lose as much as they have. Unfortunately this one doesn't seem to be lacking funds at the moment. I really think you needed to bet the flop to get an idea of what the limp/RR might have.Edited By: MarkH Dec 1st, 2011 at 08:19 PM
The way the villain played it only makes sense if he has AKdd. If he had AA you'd think he'd have 3 bet you on the turn. A9 or A8 would be strange to limp/RR pre flop. Same w/ 55 66 88 or 99.
I'd call. But I wouldn't be surprised to see AdKd or AA though. Actually, at that time of the morning I don't think I'd be surprised to see anything. Which is why I'd call.
Why would you check the flop?
as played im never foldin for 75, but i imagine we are up against a flush. 6-1 tho...Edited By: deadeyehank Dec 1st, 2011 at 09:21 PM
id haave limped behind i the game i play at pre, but raise is ok i guess, make it like 18/20 tho. and im betting the flop all day...
I hate how you played the hand overall.
I don't know how much utg+2 had to start the hand but he better have had well over $300 for you to make that call preflop.
On the flop I see absolutely positively no reason for you to check. The whole point of your call preflop was to hit a set and you did. And now you check 4 handed when you are in a position where your opps are likely to think your are bluffing when it checks to you.
Your whole outlook at this hand should be to build a pot so that you can play for stacks by the river. Checking isnt the way to do that.
+1 to the check on the flop being horrible. river is a call.
Ya I don't really understand the OP. You say utg+1 is villain and has 800 but it seems like utg+2 is the main villain???
If he does have 800, I think you can try and flop a set in position. He prob has AA with his line as nothing else makes sense. But you should be absolutely betting the flop as you will be called by any ace once they all check to you on the button. You have a set get some money in the pot man. Your raise on the turn looks sooo strong, like set or better strong, whereas a flop bet could easily be weak.
On the river I think I am just calling because people like to limp/raise AA and also check when they flop sets. Who knows tho, he could have like KK and just has no fkn clue how to play his hand. Bad players.
yeah i definately played that hand entirely wrong, i should have bet out on the flop.
i ended up just calling and he showed 10 6o, im guessing he put me on exactly what i had and thought he could get me out
LOL. I think if you had bet the flop the villain was going to check/raise you and you might not have even seen the river. For that matter, if villain had shoved the river instead of trying to bluff a value bet he'd have had a better chance of getting you off your hand. So the biggest factor in winning the hand was the mistake you made.
That's an interesting bluff the villain tried to run on you. You might consider whether or not he had a good idea either you or someone else was likely to raise pre flop like that. I don't think he had you on a set, more likely a bare A or he'd have pushed harder on the river.
He definitely didn't have hero on a set because no one would every play a-- oh, wait ...
Bet flop 100%
Checking there is asking to be stacked.
And then c/r'ing the Turn is pretty lol once some draws get there for free.
