This is a discussion on Pair of ducks within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; Cash table, 9 players, I'm BB, 5 pay, it's my turn to close. I raise the bet or just pay? What do friends say?:stoned:
Just pay and hope for trips or amybe an acidental open ended small traight draw. Either of these hands can make you a big winner. Dont raise because if you do someone will reraise huge and you will have to fold. With 5 players in,there will be money in the pot , and if you make your flop and bam. If you dont hit, you can fold easillyat low cost. Big upside , little downside.
To avoid all these problems with the "22" ... I will tell you that I play regularly at the cash tables and I have rarely played the "22" ... the few times that I have played I have lost the spots .. .!
