I would really like some opinions on this one hand I played last night.
It was the first hand of the night, and I was dealt
I was on the button, and everyone limped or folded to me so a raised about 4X the BB.
I got 1 caller.
Flop came 3 spades!!!!
I was so pumped, but I kept my cool.
My friend bet into me, about half of the pot, I honestly cannot remember though exactly how much.
I thought about it a while (trying to act weak).
Then I re-raised him, about the same amount that he bet into me.
This was a mistake I think, because I let him get of the hook without making any mistakes.
He instantly- folded, and I won.
But I realized that I probably should have just flat called, and hope that he fired another barrel on the turn, and maybe even the river, where I could then shove.
Anyway, how would you guys have played this?
