re: Poker & $109 NLHE MTT Deep Stacked: Did I play this right??
I think once you involved yourself in the pot (which you shouldn't have with 20bb in my opinion), the spot would've been to raise on the flop. He is going to c-bet that flop almost 100% of the time, with any A, or any two cards, especially if he's the preflop aggressor. Once you call the flop, the turn is a tricky spot. Because yes, if you did have a K, you wouldn't raise, you would simply call. However, that being said, once he checks the river he's not only somewhat pot commited but he keeps all your bluffs in his range. Once the K comes on the turn, he thinks it's less likely you actually have trips. So he might check call any T on the river. He includes AJ, QJ and J9 in ur range when he checks, and he figures he cant get much more value out of a T if he bets the river, if you do jam the river it's because you either have a K or not, and it's also shitty that you don't have much information on him. Anyways, once you've gotten that far I figure the jam was the right play, however if he's loose, I'm pretty sure you're done.
