What is his raise saying??? A call here is fine but...
This call is BAD. You have to figure you are beat with the raise on the turn. You could be up against a full house, a set of 7's (which you were) or a hand like AK.
Before you whine and complain about your bad luck and his bad call, analyze your own play and see where you made mistakes...(you did).
AQ DOES NOT WIN EVERY TIME AGAINST J7!!!
Nice post chicubs,
In response to your points
1. True, but he knows my game and I know his game. His is a very loose player and extremely aggressive. He is well known on the site and make a lot of final tables. So he knows I am quite a tight player normally anyway.
2. Of course his raise worries me, hence the call. There is no way I am laying down top 2 pair against this player. My thinking is "he is trying to bluff me out the pot cos he puts me on med PP, representing the A"
3. I dont consider my play that bad. Had this been a NL game I would have taken down the pot pre-flop, also he is not going to call holding AK preflop. I do consider myself unlucky, and a lot of the players at the table also said he made a bad call preflop and on the flop and he was looking at 5 outs on the flop, I feel he made a bad call and sucked me out
I may have laid this hand down under normal circumstances, and maybe I should have.
I analyzed my play just after the hand and I feel I could have laid down to his raise, buy knew he didnt have PP, so a 7 was the only card I was going down to. Then with a rag on the flop I felt half committed and half like I had the winning hand, and in the end made the wrong call
