re: Poker & $2 NLHE 6-max: Rush Game - Bad play or Bad luck?
I think the comments above already established that flatting PF is bad. 3x+ 3bet - great fold equity and initiative on flop.
Now, I would also would have reraised flop. I don't think we fold out all of his range that we crush (esp. at these stakes).
A9-AQ would defo continue [Roughly 30+ combos] (depending how weak the villain, maybe even worse Ax, and maybe pocket pairs 99-JJ).
Even if he had 88, AA, KK, AK it's only 11 combos.
Since Hero is IP, I would have checked Turn and called the river. That is if he doesn't decide to donk turn (after hitting 2P on Turn). In which case, I'd be inclined to C/F
Any comments on this reasoning are really welcomed.
