re: Poker & This is pretty horrible
It's a real hand from last night. I was playing pretty terribly, no idea why. Still broke even mainly thanks to flopping two pair and straights from the BB in unraised pots (gotta love that).
Anyway, here are the mistakes I thought I made.
- Limping preflop. In the cutoff with Ax and folded around is an obvious raise/fold situation.
- Calling the raise preflop. Yes it's a LAGgy table, but that's no reason to call raises with junk, especially an SB raise.
- Calling the river. I didn't improve my hand, and BB has been betting through, obviously not caring about my flop raise. I have good pot odds
, but am beating nothing but a total bluff, which is unlikely.
I don't mind the flop raise, as it lets me know if anyone has made a flush, or if SB has something like AKs. There's no reraise, so I'm more confident (but still quite unsure) that if I make a flush it will be good, as this LAGgy table doesn't know the meaning of the word slowplay.
BB turned up A6 for a flopped 2 pair, and I reckon SB had something like QQ/JJ.
