re: Poker & Low pair in paired board - Reraised preflop
Yeah, you played this real bad (and got very lucky).
First, you have to fold to his reraise preflop, you don't have set odds
, and you can't really continue on flops that don't have a 2.
OK...now onto flop, I don't like your flop bet. Most people when they rr preflop and check the flop, its so they can C/R. Our hand obv cant stand a C/R..so it's better to check and see how he plays the turn and also gives us a chance to catch up if we're behind.
Now I really hate your reasoning as to why we're ahead here. Why would AA always cbet the flop? He knows you can hardly ever stand a bet (your range of hands is mainly pairs less than the king.). Ditto AK/KK/QQ etc etc. Now, what if he had AQ/AJ this would be the PERFECT flop for him to cbet, as you're folding so often, so i think AQ/AJ RARELY checks this flop.
You're reading WWAAAYYYYY too much into his c/r amount. His check raise was far smaller than the size of the pot nd committed him to get allin...not the sort of play most ppeople will make with A-high!
