BB bets t7010 (All-In), Hero calls t6850 (All-In).


Was the call on the turn right? BB had been very aggressive and i didnt put him on a jack because he would have 3 bet the flop all in.

If i folded i could have made 2nd place because SB was a very tight player, should i settle for seccond or go for first?

With only 3 left I think you have to play for 1st here. I think you should have made a bigger raise preflop it would gave a better chance to win the pot right there and define the BB's hand better if he call. With the min raise they could be making a pot odds call with about anything. That is why you dont know where your at. Given the way the handstands I think you have to call and hope to suck out but I is likely to be a bad call.

Yeah, I can see KQ written all over that last bet. The only hope is a flush but you are getting almost enough pot odds to make that last call.

Even so, playing for first doesn't mean making -EV plays just because you have a shot at doubling.

However, I do think calling is slightly positive here. KQ is pretty likely, but so are T8, QT, TsXs, or basically any hand that was drawing and improved slightly on the turn.

He had Th9d i ended loosing ....

if you count my outs considerin the other players hand i would have 8 to a flush(Ten of spades wont help), 2 more Jacks, 3 more 7's, 3 more 8's(one is a spade) and 3 more 4's, that gives me a total of 19 outs(19/46) which gives me a 42% chance of sucking out on the river.
