re: Poker & 5/10 limit - I wuss out on the river.
This is standard to me, but I felt funny about the hand when I checked the river.
Here's the thing:
- My kicker just got counterfeited. So if he has any ace, I'm at best splitting this pot with him. Betting won't do me a lick of good.
- He does not have a flush. A lagtard raises the flop (or the turn) with a flush draw since "I SEMIBLUFF AND LOL FOR EQUITY" or something similarly ridiculous. I have an article coming up about that. Anyway.
- He does not have a big pocket pair like KK or JJ. I would have heard from him preflop, at least.
So if I bet, I'm hoping for him to call with K-high (in which case he'd need to put me on 99 or whatever) or him calling me with a pair of queens.
Meh, I'm probably being results oriented. I wanted to bet the river, decided not to and was pissed off when he showed Q9.
