Give him credit for a King and move on, it's too early on to get carried away with this hand.

Fold preflop, the blinds aren't big enough to steal and if you get any callers you are most likely behind maybe even way behind. The only thing you beat here is a bluff with air, fold.

I dont really mind opening with this hand and your not really stealing your just opening with a medium strength ace. On flop its pretty obvious and easy fold to the mini raise, I mean what are you beating? he either has a K or a pair both of which have you beat. You shouldnt even have to think about it just muck it.

ahhh stormswa but i DID think about it....

i thought for a couple seconds and then.....

willthegreat24 calls 175
*** TURN *** [Kc 9c Kh] [7c]
breakbredquick checks
willthegreat24 bets 350

i decided to make the call, i really have no proof other than gut feeling....as soon as he checks the turn I know he has absolutely nothing....
so i bet 350

breakbredquick calls 350
*** RIVER *** [Kc 9c Kh 7c] [Ks]
breakbredquick bets 600

he makes the call and then bets out 600 leaving himself with 50 chips....

well i know for sure he does not have a king, and the check on the turn kind of messed with my mind...well i think about it for a while and

willthegreat24 has 15 seconds left to act
willthegreat24 has requested TIME
willthegreat24 calls 600
*** SHOW DOWN ***
breakbredquick shows [Jc Qh] three of a kind, Kings
willthegreat24 shows [Th As] three of a kind, Kings
willthegreat24 wins the pot (2,870) with three of a kind, Kings

even though i should not have played it on the flop, my gut told me otherwise and i went with it...

some of you may look at this and say "what a donk", which is precisely what the guy said after he lost his stack....

I know it wasnt a good play but I believe it wasnt a bad play

i dont know

maybe im on drugs

who knows....

thoughts?

results results results....:rolleyes:


and for every 1 time this works there are 20 times where it dosent.


its funny though im pretty sure everyone that posted this expected the results to come back exactly like this. I mean why else would you post this besides saying hahaha guys your all wrong because I read through his soul and called.

btw I might of played the hand exactly like he did except the river. Mini raise flop to get the free card, I would think my Q or J might be good and my T is good. But wouldnt bluff river because the river card could not of helped me.
