re: Poker & flopped monster but could not get paid off
I would raise the flop. If I were him I'd think "Why would he raise here? Maybe he wants to know if I have the queen. Okay, he's either got an ace or he's being sneaky."
Also, if he is bluffing
, he might call this street just to prove he's not able to be pushed around.
Depends on his stats, your read on his style (obv your read on his cards doesn't matter here.)
I had the same problem, except I was in BB at a loose table with KT. Flop comes KTT. Ugh. Checked the flop, bet the turn. I guess nobody improved on the Q that came out, which surprised me actually.
Flopping a boat is hard to get paid unless somebody has trips.
