re: Poker & MezzoDana - MTT
4 players limp to me in the CO.
I raise to 480 (pot) with Ts-9s-Td-As. 3 callers (button, UTG, UTG+1)
4-way to the flop: 5d, 4h, 10c
Action checked to me, I raise 1,414. Button calls.
Heads-up to the turn: Kh
I bet 2/3 pot bc 1) I know I'm best here and 2) I need the board to pair, so if he's chasing the flush and/or straight I need to be aggressive. In fact, I bet his exact stack size.
Opponent calls all-in.
He shows: Qd-4d-3h-6h
With a straight AND a flush draw on the turn, I was drawing to pair the board. He ends up getting there.
I did end up re-buying and placing 2nd in this tournament so I'm very pleased. But, this particular PLO hand is a good one to review. I've played this player NLHE before, but not PLO prior to this game.
What do you think? Should I have slow played to the river?
