This is a discussion on Good fold or bad fold River? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; V is 29/11 in 35 hands; i dont remember anything unusual about him
Villainīs big bet OTR made my doubt about the fold....if he has something
If I was the villain and 100% sure you have the ace and would call I would have bet like he did on the river if I has a set or 2 pair +. Hi checking on the flop does not say much but he did bet out on the turn in 3 2 other players. He could have had a big ace set or 2 pair or turned a flush draw. He would have hit the flush on the rived and hoped you did not believe him.
I am calling for sure in this spot, you played it weak with top pair and he has no idea you have an ace.. Looks like he is trying to push you off a medium pocket pair or something.. so like i said i'm calling. Sometimes lose to flush but thats poker!
I play Micro don't trust my opinion!
In general, what range do you expect from SB position when he is flat calling pre-flop? Also keep in mind SB is the shortest stack at the table...
Let's say SB had AK, flop is A53, do you ever lead here when there are two players IP? Ofc not, you check, hoping to see a c-bet only to re-raise and make the pot bigger.
IMO, you were probably beat by a better A. Also, don't think that every big Ax like AQs/AK is a clear re-raise from the SB. Many nowadays play it slow, just calling OOP and for a good reason too: Not flopping a TP and playing OOP in a 3bet - call spot pre-flop is super hard..
