FLOP comes: 8d 8c 9h
checked around I check (good call if in EP/MP but if LP/last to act you would have to raise here)
BB raises 10 I call followed by SB calling (re-raise here)
Turn Comes 10d
SB checks BB goes all-in for 325 I have 85 and SB has 55
I call fast putting him on 10 J maybe 9 10 for two pair SB flods
River comes Jc
I turn over A 8 having 3 pair 8-8-8-J-A
BB Lag turns over JQ for a straight 8-9-10-J-Q
Nearly puked did I play this wrong or any insights on how I might have been able to play this better. I just didn't put him on the nuts when he went all in..
SB announced he had 5-6 and he nearly called another player said good lay down these are the types of players I was playing with.
It happens, I also lost two pairs to a straight last week when a LAG decided to keep calling his 33 on an A92 board when I was betting my two pair(A9).
Alot of loose players at the casinos
