First live cash game
I played my first live cash game the other day (normally play online MTTs) and wanted to know if my play on a critical hand was correct or not. I was playing $1/$2 nl and bought in with a max buy-in of $200.
A fairly active player opens in early position to $10, I am in the cut off with
off and re-raise to $30. The blinds fold and the villain calls.
AA4 with 2 hearts. Villain checks, I bet $40 and villain calls.
The turn is the
, the villain waits around 5 seconds and then shoves all in for $150. The pot was roughly $140 so it was a pot sized bet.
Obviously he is representing a flush. I go into the tank for about 2 minutes. I am trying to think what flush hands he could have that would have opened early for $10 and called my $30 pre-flop bet. I decide that there wasn’t many combinations. He could also be betting an Ace aggressively to try and get rid of 1 heart hands and also the turn heart was a good bluff card.
I eventually call and he shows
. The river is a blank and I lose the pot.
I called because I had 2-1 odds
on the call and didn’t expect to see hands like
call pre-flop. Was my call right or should I have folded here. I would like to know if my call was +ev over 1,000’s of hands like this.
Thanks in advance
