(14$) Flop comes Kh, As, 9h
it gets checked all the way around
Turn : Jh
again checks all the way to me so I am like F that i ain't betting for anybody and check
Button bets 25$ and it folds around to me. . . I think for soooo long and finally convinced myself to fold and show him my straight. He agreed to show me and showed me Ah Ac for top set with tons of outs. . . .
Was this a bad fold? I didn't have much information on the guy I had only been sitting for less then a hour and only had 2$ in the pot.
Any advice on how to play that turn card would be appreciated because I was totally stumped on whether I should bet after it checked all the way to me. It's like I was way to convinced that somebody had the flush.
Pretty much I convinced myself I was crushed and decided to go with my gut unfortunately this time I was wrong.
Who knows though he had like the whole deck as outs.
Ofcourse it was a bad play, but not as bad as the play by the button. You're only mistake was to check on the turn. If you had raised the turn then AA won't re-raise you, he would have just called because straight/flush beats him.
Now going back to the button's play - I feel like a daddy and I'm ready to scold him. First of all, you don't limp on AA's/KK's (I even bet preflop for 10's). Secondly, You don't check if you a set on the flop especially a top set.
If you don't follow these, you're inviting trouble to you're own. So, it was bad play by the button.
An important tip for you Rewards92, If you put someone on a top set and at the same time you have a top straight, then only thing you should been afraid of was a Full House, which in your case there wasn't. So it wasn't a bad news for you, it was good. You should have called $25 on turn. Doing so, you would have known whether there is a full house/flush made on river. It would have made your play easier and you could have taught the button a lesson.
And I Quote,
"Limping on Aces is a crime. Please don't try this at Home, School, Bars, Casinos
GOOD LUCK IN FUTURE!
