Wow, what a totally different game. I couldn't understand everyone drawing to the river with "rubbish" . That is untill I hit QQ as the dealer - bet 4 times the BB was called by 2 players (BB and mid pos) .
Flop 2 5 10 (looking good) looked for the all in button....oh no! pot raise only. BB Calls. Other folds
turn J BB Checks - I raise all in - BB Calls
and shows A 2
river is of course an A.
Is Pot Limit so much different that it allows a 4BB call with A2 and UTG too???
Thank goodness it was only R20 ($4) so a cheap learning curve
Well considering he probably folds to your all-in, this was better for you (in the long run). He was chasing a 5-outer with 2:1 odds
to call. Remember, you win money when your opponents make mistakes. If you push all-in and he folds he made the right play and only loses the initial call. Here you got him to commit all his chips when he was behind. He sucked out on you, but you got what you wanted.
