re: Poker & smooth calling with mid pairs
Thank you all so much for responding, this is only my second post, it is the first time I signed up for one of these sites and im glad I did, you have all been very helpful and I hope I can return the favor someday.
I should have given a little more info on the other 2 players, the original raiser seemed pretty solid, it was my first timed playing him/her, the caller however was a very poor player who id seen many times.
I was thinking a long the same lines as you guys, i just wanted to make sure I was not completly off base by folding. I try to read as much as I can, but books cant give you an exact answer to evry hand. Next time I get into a situaiton like this one I will be a lot more confident.
In the hand i ended up folding, the flop came out all under cards 5,7,3
both players got allin, with the raiser having qq, and the maniac catching a set of fives and winning the pot.
Again thank you for the help.
