Well this hand got my pulse raising yesterday!
Is flopping the nut flush like 1/500 hands? I don't know but I felt quite comfortable after the flop.
Didn't want to spook anybody so I figured as long as the board didn't pair I would be safe. I have never seen a straight flush so I pretty much disregard this if i am multitabling as time is of the essence! I checked and let a the turn card come...
A ten! Now I dont feel quite so confident as like the Queen on the board, a ten is well within the range for calling my pre-flop raise!
Player in early position bets out and the guy in mid position quickly puts in a hefty raise going all-in with his last 62 cents. I smelt danger and figured it was time to end the hand so I also went all-in. Guy in early position folded, keeping his last $1.11.
Was I right to panic or should I have kept the pace slow to take his last $1.11 after the river?
Should I have folded when the guy in mid position went all-in as there was serious full house danger. Did I just get lucky winning this hand afterall?
I suppose when there are to Tens on the board there is less chance of someone else also having a Ten as well as a Queen!
Hoping I will get more luck in this section than hand analysis.
