re: Poker & How would you play this?
without knowing stack sizes, I'll just take a guess
since I know I can probably never fold a Royal flush draw with top 2 pair right here, I'll pick my action based on my read.
If I think my opponent is the type who will ONLY bet if he has a straight, and will fold if he doesn't I'll probably just go all in and cross my fingers.
If I think my opponent is tricky and could possibly try to represent broadway, or represent MY hand, or maybe be dumb enough to value bet a worse 2 pair here...then I'll check to induce because there is absolutely no harm in giving a free card here. And yeah, sometimes he'll bet with broadway and I'll call and lose, but sometimes he'll bet with air, or a worse draw and I'll still call and win. Either way, leading into him gains me no value as he'll only call when I'm beat. So I check with the 100% intention of calling any bet he makes.
