Twizzy, unless that's sarcasm in your voice, you're exactly right. His bad play or bad bluff is no excuse for yours. You can outplay Donks like Chuck, don't get lead into the dark tunnel. The correct answer is...FOLD! Let's not be results oriented.
No that wasn't sarcasm at all. Just calling what I see, which is neither player was going to lay the hand down, bet, raise, and re-raise no matter what. I never ever said it was a bad play by Chuck what so ever. Villian was caught at bluffing, but bluffing is never a bad thing. Everyone gets caught now and then at bluffing so its not a big deal. His bet after the flop is a great move I like to use myself when I do have a monster hand.
Instead of check-raising.. you throw the mini-bet out to conceal your strong hand then re-raise the raiser. The mini bet means 1 of 2 things, either you have a hand or have a very weak hand. Now the turn the villian figures he took control of the hand with the re-raise, he bet out again. Being strongly out of position here, the villian tried to regain the advantage because of his postion.
Now the question remains would chuck have folded if he bet out on the river with a flush and a straight showing?
If this hand was played diffrently by the villian would have Chuck folded at any point?
Now please explain about which poor play(that I wouldn't be afraid to show) cause again it helps me, also helps others not to make such a poor play. Yet I won't play the cards cause I have a feeling.
Now would I have folded? I definatly would have thought about it. I stop trying to make rush decisions which has better helped my game.
Would chuck be kicking himself in the butt if villian had a straight, flush or a set?
