4 of a Kind- was I just lucky?
Ok, I played this hand some time ago:
$5/$10 NL Holdem, 6 handed table, I hold 5,5
Three fold before me, leaving only two players after me, and one of them is very very tight. I min-raise to $20.
Next player folds, leaving the tight player (BB), who calls the $10
Now Heads up, and the flop comes: 5,5,J
I make the killer hand, but if i bet im nearly sure he will fold. I check. He checks.
Turn makes the board: 5,5,J,8
I check again, and he bets $20
I raise to $40
River makes the board: 5,5,J,8,J
I go all in $120
He calls me and shows full house J,9
I know I won, but I just wasn't sure if I played this hand correctly. I just felt uncomfortable the whole time. The last Jack seemed the only thing that saved me.
