last hand of the night...
last hand from last night.
$2/$3, $100 buy in NLHE. I'm SB with 130, CO is LAG with 100 (he just re-bought in), Button is a good TAG, but I've caught her bluffing once (we'd probably played around 120 hands together on this table), with around 350. It's been a rough night for me, and it may have been showing (11 of my 14 showdowns have been 2nd best hands - all of them better better than TPTK). As for the check on the flop - I ALWAYS check blind on the flop when I have the option in a live game. I do lose a chance to value bet on monster hands occasionally, and sometimes have my good hand broken by a free turn, but giving everyone else a chance to bet first before I make a decision gives me half the advantages of the button.
Deal comes K♥J♥
fold around to CO, CO min raises to $6, button calls, SB folds, I call.
I check blind.
CO checks, button bets $15. I'm thinking she was bluffing with the button but could have a bigger K- I call. CO folds.
turn 6♥ - no help, but now I have a FD
I check, button checks.
riverJ♣. That works for me...
I bet $30.
Button raises to $60 - huh?
I decide she's maybe got AJ or J9, and push (around $110 total)
she insta-calls and flips over...
