Flopping a nut straight in O H/L
What's the best way to handle this?
Last night I'm playing at a .25/.50 dealers choice. I'm the BB. 5 handed.
UTG raises to $1.50. Everyone calls. I held 10J46 rainbow. I call cause of pot odds
. Probably a bad call (if so, point it out now but like I said. Pot odds
. Cost me $1 to see a pot of $6.50) but the calls not what we're discussing.
Flop is 3c5h7c, two clubs. Already a low, but I flop high straight.
What do you do here?
Person to my left bet the pot. I reraised the pot to give any draws horrible odds. Get called and original raiser is all in with a call.
Turn pairs the board, 3c5h7c7s I check. Active player remaining checks. Juicy pot and I'm sweating bullets. River card completes the flush with 3c5h7c7s9c.
I check, guy moves all in for another $25. I'm so angry at this point cause its such a huge pot that originally had my name on it.
I tank for a moment, knowing I'm folding but just thinking as I look at the digusting turn of events that occured in this hand.
I sniffed my cards and jokingly said "I had nuts but it doesn't smell so nutty anymore".
Player all in on flop shows boat. Other guy shows flush as well as A2 for nut low.
Question is: with pot odds, was this still a bad call PF?
Also, did I get out of this hand as cheaply as possible? I know I reraised on the flop but at that point I had the best hand. Was this reraise a bad move?
I just hated seeing such a juicy pot get split and shipped elsewhere cause of fish chasing!
