Hello guys, I'm new to the forum and a beginner in poker so I would like to know how you would have played this hand.
So I was in a cash game (with play money) and I was playing against three opponents, I was on the button and opponent A was on the SB and opponent B was on the BB. They were both quite tight.
The blinds were: 5/10
I had: 970 chips
Player A had: 1,369 chips
Player B had: 390 chips
So my hole cards were 10♥️Q♠️
I decide to call the BB (I know I shouldn't have limped), player A calls (SB), and player B checks.
Now the flop comes and I flop a straight
Player A bets 120 chips and Player B folds. Now with a board like that and counting the fact that player A is tight (and could possibly have a flush draw) I decided to just check.
Now on the turn comes J♥️ and player A checks the action to me and I decide to check back, (thinking that he might fold if I make a bet, because not only could he think that I had the straight, there was now the possibility that I could have the set of jacks).
On the river comes an 8♥️ and he checks again, now I decide to make a value bet of 520 chips and Player A folds and I receive a pot of 258 chips.
How would you have played to extract more value from Player A?
Sorry, I meant call. Thanks for your reply though, that's what I thought, he probably had an Ace or a King so he would probably have called if I raised him and I should probably have raised pre flop as well.
