Disagreement with my brother...
Okay, I feel dumb for even posting this but my brother keeps bitching at me saying that I had played this hand really really bad... (I don't take much of his advice seriously since he is in the red and i'm up quite a bit...)
First off, reads... pbenno has been steaming lately, lost a few big pots.. And I noticed he loved to bluff the flush, on three ocasions within 45 minutes he would bet huge on the third suited card and turned out to have nothing at all...
I had been playing pretty solid poker.. So, when they all had limped in I raised it up to 2.50 and the flop came K,10,6.. What I initially put them on before the flop was a low-medium pocket pair... When the flop came I figured I could throw out a bet and make it look like I had AK, thinking if someone had KJ or lower they would fold since I had been playing so tight.. If they raise, well then obviously I fold..If i get flat called, oh well I have an ace as a possible out and the J for the straight... oh and the backdoor flush draw...
On the turn my thinking was, okay... This guy just bet out into me 11 euro's... And i've seen him represent a flush many many times without it.... With him only having 9 euro's left after his 11 euro bet, I decided to push on him...
Now In my opinion my only possible mistake was the flop bet being a bit too big.. the pot was at 10 euro's ish at the time, so perhaps a 3.50 euro bet might have been better... But other then that I really think I played it fine.. Obviously I got lucky hitting the jack on the turn but other then... IF I had no reads on the guy and he had some more money at the table.. I would probably fold on the turn.
