nothing you can do there, really. he could've gotten away from the hand. especially when you called a hand better than the one he had out and THEN pushed.


he thought about it for a while.. went into time bank... then called
it just kinda sucked for my bankroll, since im trying to recover from a huge spiralling death spin downwards...

Your stack is too small to be fancy with raises preflop. Push or fold already there.

same advice...

same advice as the two above. Push the PF if you want to play this at all. In this case, it woudn't have helped you (his PP will probably get him to call), but as a general rule you're more likely to succeed by pushing PF with less than 10xBB in your stack


only 2 ways

only 2 ways to play the hand.

one has been stated already and that is pushing preflop or folding.

the only other way is a stop and go, which would be just betting a little preflop or actually calling small raise preflop is the correct way, then pushing flop regardless of the flop.

as for the hand you got him to go all in drawing to 2 outs, what more could you want?
