$50 NLHE Full Ring: My bottom pair turned into trips on the turn
This was live home cash game. It was a hand where I took this girl's stack and she was extremely frustrated with me. She was angry at my play and I told her "sorry, I just betted on the flop, hoping for you to fold but I lucked out on the turn."
But honestly, I want to ask you guys about this hand.
I just walked in and bought in for $20 because in this cash game, they let you buy in for $20 on first buy-in and then $40 after. So I just bought in for $20. Around after one rotation later, here's the hand that was played.
I'm on a button with As4s.
Cutoff limps for 50 cents. I raise it to $2, small blind calls, big blind calls.
Flop came out 4 5 Q rainbow. Small blind donk bets out for 50 cents. cutoff calls, I reraise it to $3. My reasoning behind this play was, I wanted to represent the range of overpair/top pair/middle pair(holding a pocket pair)/set/etc. Small blind folds, and cutoff calls. Turn comes out 4c. Cutoff checks, I bet out $10 and she moves all-in. I instantly called and she rolls over 56s. She wanted me to run it twice, so I did and no 5 came out, so I won. She was frustrated at my play and said she should've just shoved on the flop. I told her, "Sorry for the beat." Towards end of the night, she says farewell to everyone except to me. I understand that I sucked out on the turn but when I betted out, I was hoping they fold based on their folding tendency as since I was the pre-flop raiser. Of course, if there were any resistance beyond this, I would've folded.
I don't want to be result-oriented and say I played it right just because I won. Could I have played this hand better? I understand she got sucked out on the turn while having a right read on me on the flop. But man, this hand really got her frustrated, angry and mad. Towards end of the night, when she was leaving, she said farewell and byes to everyone except to me.
