folding to a reraise?
I found myself in a difficult situation last night in my local tourney..this was the situation. Half way through the tourney, my stack is around 10k the blinds are 3-600 I'm in the BB with J9h, one limper in MP the SB calls and I check. The flop comes 9,10 spades with a 4 (pretty much a blank it might have been a 3 I can't really remember). Now I had just sat down at this table and had played 3 hands previously having been moved from another, the SB checks, the pot is around 1800, so I bet out 2500 the reason is that if I'm ahead I don't want to see another card and also I don't want the flush getting odds
to call. However, my plan went astray when the MP 3bet me 7500 the SB folds. I try to put him on a hand...if he has a ten then the preflop call would suggest J10 or higher maybe 8-10suited spades, flush draw but then you would think he would call and see the next card as cheaply as possible, anyway I fold in the end. I just find it difficult to call a 3bet with middle pair. I suppose it could have been a complete bluff but I heard him say that 'he didn't want a call that's why I bet so much'. This annoyed me and made me think that I may have been ahead. What would the cardschat mates of mine say good strategy would be to this? By the way his stack was around 15-18000. I do appreciate all your help it's a great forum..the sniper
