Yeah, looking back on it there are many things I wish I had done different, of course thatís all in hindsight.
Thatís actually a typo from my OP, my Cbet was 2K not 3K, but Iím guessing that you still donít like that. That Cbet sizing is something I like to do early in tournaments when stacks are deep, I prefer pot sized Cbets to my normal 50% to 60% pot size Cbets, and considering my opponent here, I really thought he would fold, JJ is the last hand I put him on. So in that regard he played it well because it was totally disguised. I wish I could have put him on a set, I may have shoved the river, especially if another spade came out Ė but thatís just wishful thinking after the fact and this guy probably would have called anyway.
Just out of curiosity though, why do you disagree with the turn check? Itís still early and I have no desire to get stacked. I really donít like the King all that much, though, in my opinion, it is largely ahead of his range at that point but Iím already starting to feel like I got in over my head. I mean obviously we know now that he wouldnít have folded to pretty much anything but what would you suggest; 3500 - 4000?
