Wheeeww... where do I start? I'll try to paint the best picture I can of what happened:
This guy has played a lot of Limit w/ me, and knows I'm very tight, and don't get out of line too much (that he knows of ) So, my initial thinking was that he thought I was going to be weak/tight in this game. That kind of thinking of me almost made me insta-call his flop push. Then I called, "time," and took a few minutes to try and put him on a hand vs. what he thought I would be playing.
The three hands I'm really worried about are QJ (flopped str8), 99 (set), 10's (set). I think I'd call if I could eliminate those hands, somehow. What's he thinking?
1) He knows I have a big hand, which could mean he WANTS me to call, knowing where I am... which was actually weighing me to a fold.
2) He knows I have a big hand, and overbets the pot to simply get me off my hand (unless I had KK). Even if I had AA, he knows I can find a fold.
A minute into my "time-out," where I had pretty much decided to fold... he started to talk to me. BIG MISTAKE!!!! He was taunting me: "You can't call w/ your Aces or AK... I got you beat. You're probably close to dead." (you ready for this next brilliant move of his???)
HE SHOWED ME ONE CARD (can do this HU, cash). HE SHOWED ME A RED K!!!!
He just eliminated every hand I was worried about. Maybe he has K,10... so what...
He almost fell out of his chair! I knew I had him before he even turned over his hand, which he didn't have to... but the table was going crazy by this time, and kinda made him. He flipped KhQs.
Turn brick, river brick. MY HAND GOOOOOD!
