Recently played this heads up sit and go hand. Only played 14 hands with this opponent so I did not have much information on him.

Back ground on the hand:

He flat calls the blind in position.

Flop: check, check.

Turn: I check, he min bets, I check raise to 60 hoping to take pot down and also since I picked up more outs. He calls.

River, I lead for 80, he raises to 260?

With flush on the board and potentially a higher straight.

What would you do and why? I can tell you I called, but seriously considered just getting it in.

I would call, because I think there's not much to be gained from going all-in. If he has you beat (flush, higher straight), he would definitely call your all-in. If he has anything worse than a straight, he'd most likely fold, leaving you with the same pot as if you had called.

I'm a beginner though, so I could be wrong :angel:

Call.

Worst hands are folding and you're only getting called by hands that beat you or split the pot with you. Only one of those scenarios is a good one, if you're called.

Yea, after more thought into it I came to conclusion calling is the right choice.

Btw, he had trip 5’s and I took down the pot.

Thanks for your input.

He ended up having trips and I won.

Thanks for your input.

Just call because worse hands will fold and better hands won't fold anyway
