SB folds, BB calls quickly
Td- essentially a blank
SB checks, I bet pot
SB thinks and thinks and thinks and thinks then goes all in
What do you think?
1- Bluff- he has nothing and is hoping to get you out of the hand
2- monster- flopped a set or two pair and doesn't want you to draw out on him
3- Bathroom- had to go take a wiz and just made it back in time then decided to go all in with a Ten
4- Other option
This happened to me a couple of nights ago and I ended up calling his all in.
Results to come after I get your feedback (sorry for the tease but I don't want to ruin the feedback by providing you with what actually happened)
.. as others have said... how is the 10d possibly a blank?
The 'quick call' on the flop is often a common 'online tell' for someone who is on a draw.... if he had a good hand... would he not possibly pause to consider putting in a raise...
I would have to fold here.
Pot bet on turn seems pretty high... you're obviously representing something and he figures he has you beat (and maybe counting on you to call with a made flush and not wanting you to drw out with say Ad-Kx).
Who knows...I wasn't there watching the game to be able to give an intelligent response anyways...
Oh yah... one other thing... I thought the sb called here O.O.P. & the bb came in behind preflop. THen I thought the sb folded once you bet 3/4pot on the flop?
For the bigblind to check/call here on the flop.... what's it telling you? (maybe a monster?.. maybe a bad player??.. does he normally semi-bluff bet out draws on the flop?... or just strong draws?... is he holding something like K-T and has just hit 2pr. on the turn??... maybe he called behind preflop w 44... maybe he's an idiot??... have you played any hands up to this point? if so.. did you show down something that represented strong if you'd c-bet prior??).
