never been in that situation myself...but seems like it'd be next to impossible to get any chips out of an opponent.
nice hand tim, and good effort trying to milk it :/

Wow nice hand with a hand like that you just hope someone has a flush.

N1. A way to get any good amount of chips would have been to go all in after the flop and see if anyone wants to gamble.
Bunch of bums folding preflop . .. bah! You've had a rough couple of days...lol

There was a similar discussion to this on another thread recently. Unlike the last time however, I think the all in could work here. There are two spades on the board so your opponent could put you on AK and think you're protecting against a flush. If he's drawing to a flush, he may consider a call.

For me, I still like a min raise here. That could induce a fold but it could also make him think you have a draw or 2 pair. (they obviously should know you have something since you raised 3x BB preflop)

LOL - on the other thread i suggested going all-in, but i think that is the last thing to do here! On the other thread the board was AAA, and Twizzybop was very much the short stack (10th of the stack of a couple of other players). I reckon an all in there might make people think "no way he's got an Ace going all-in like that, i'm going to call and punish the blind stealing donkey!". Here, Tim's pre flop raise suggests Ace (or PP which opponent will still likely be behind). All he can do is check to the river, and hope opponent makes flush or Full house. If you want him to make flush, the last thing you do is to bet so he doesn't have odds to draw!

We really have to stop meeting like this Rob. Once again, we find ourselves on the opposite side of a situation. If you have a perceptive player, an all in move means you're either weak or want to take down the pot right there to eliminate a flush draw. The OP in this case is short stacked (as you mentioned when discussing Twizz earlier) so he may very well call if he's after a flush draw and decides he's making his stand there. (the he is in danger of being blinded out 1k chips 100/200 blinds) After all, what are the odds that someone has 4 aces...his theoretical flush would beat a high two pair or even trips.

You might be right - just looked at his stack, he had 1045 chips and he CALLED a 500 bet rather than go all-in! I still reckon you let him make the first move, but you never know how a hand like this will pan out.

yea times like that suck when you know the other person has nothing but yet you cant check it though, i would have put a bet out on the turn or even flop to see if he might have been chasing somethign and if so you could hvae bet twice and drove the pot way up. Checking it though seemed like a bad idea but of course im saying that after i saw the entire hand played out lol.
