completing the small blind?
I often find myself, playing at low stakes, coming by these sorts of situations. Lets see i'll be sitting in the small blind holding a hand like 7s 3s and blinds are 25/50 and a non suspicious limper enters the pot, lets say from middle position. I find myself sitting with this silly hand and I usually muck, although from every source I read it explains to me that you're getting such great odds
that folding with any hand here would be improper. But, is it not that with just a great of chance that I flop great and take the pot down that I may get myself in trouble fiddling with these low value cards?
Lets say there are two limpers now, again non suspicious, and it comes around to me to complete 25 to enter this 175 chip pot. I enter with my
js 2d, due to odds here being to great to pass on, and the flop comes
jd 8s 5s, where am I at now? At possible risk in getting in trouble? If a small bet comes around to me am I supposed to muck this because my kicker is horrible and i'll only be looking for a 2 or a J to make this hand?
Should I bet if the turn is safe and it was checked around on the flop?
These are some of the questions that come across my mind while playing in these sort of positions, usually if there is a small bet I say adios to the
j 2 unless having some sort of evidence against the villian.
Not to further elongate this thread, but what about if there is a min raise to 100 chips and there are two callers and the sum of the pot now balances to 375 chips and I only need 75 to call, but here I am with my weak hand. It is a very minor aspect of the game, but I would still like to read how you guys handle these types of situations.
