Pocket Pair + Open-Ender Flop
Reads: Zeke=Aggressive bully, plays many hands; Meszi= Chaser; The Rest= much limping. Many non-pairs being aggressively bet & raised by Zeke and chased by Meszi. When Zeke folds PF, almost everyone limps.
Pre-Flop: My min raise was designed to stop limpers but encourage the chasers without risking much. I would have folded to the re-raise had the chaser not called. I felt the pot was now big enough to warrant a call.
Flop: The chaser checked and my pocket pair now had an open-ended straight draw working with it, so I had plenty of outs (10) giving me good B.E. odds
(3-1). I had a decent read on these guys, but I was sandwiched between them.
Given my stack size, what next? Check weakly, bet softly, bet strongly, or all-in?
