re: Poker & LIVE HAND MOTHERFER
I think he played it pretty well. What kind of hand did you think he had when he called your check-raise?
You need to slow down on the turn after that. A good player won't have called this without at least a big King. You've projected a lot of strength and he's obviously afraid of trip Fours in case you'd limped in with something like A4s or 45s, or slow-played AA pre-flop, although he should be more wary if the board were K-5-4 rather than K-4-4, because there's more of chance he's up against a set. If he's ahead, he knows you're probably drawing to 3 outs, so there's not much need for him to raise you out and alert you to his hand. He's got half his money in and is probably not too keen to go bust with top pair.
