flop is J,7,2 rainbow. he donks for the pot.
I call figuring out he is probably bluffing and if i raise i take him away of his bluffs
He bets big (around 2/3 pot)
i call thinking he probably continues with the bluff. and decided to fold if he shoves the river
but the river comes a King. and he shoves. so i htink and then call... he had K2o...
some might say that raising the flop would be the right option since it would have won me the pot this time.. but i believe that this is not the case since it would have costed me value had the turn not improve him... i believe my mistake was not folding the river. or maybe i should have raised the flop. because i didnt have info on the guy to make sure he was going to continue bluffing if that was the case... i am really confused because this happened exactly after i put my money in with Aces against kings and saw the river taking my stack away with a nice King giving my opponent a house..
I am by no means a good poker player so my advice is maybe worthles but if i put myself in his postion i would have done the same.
You raise. Its heads up and a 0.02 game. I have a king so guess i might as well try, king high is not too bad in heads up.
Flop comes and i hit bottom pair, i guess you must have at least on face card, so i bet and if you call or raise you have the jack and i fold.
Turn comes and i hit two pair. So now i think i have you, unless you have a set, bet big because i think i have you beat but a call from you could change that.
I hit the full house, you called my big bet so you might have a full house as well but not as good as mine. Have to shove.
Roughly along those lines.
All i can think is that if you had raised the flop he would have folded. I know you wanted value, but that is where the gambling element comes in. I prefer them to make the gamble (if that makes sense)
But i could be wrong, its the first time i have ever tried giving poker advice, so there is a good chance its wrong, haha
