  • Rookie mistake, right?

    I'm playing a live cash $1-$2 for minimum buy in of $75. I am by far the shortest stack. I'm in middle position and get dealt Ad2d. I call and get raised 3 big blinds only. 4 more players call the raise so I call as well. 3dKc4d on the turn and everyone checks. 7d on the turn. At this point I have A high flush. I min raise and get re-raised by the original raiser, so I go all in, everyone folds except the raiser, who calls me. 7c on the river. I show my flush and he turns up 3c3c for full house.
    Question: other than the first mistake to enter the pot pre flop, did I play this hand all right?

    Hi lyaltabrat! Welcome to the forum. Here's a link that will help to get you more familiar with many of the options that PSO has to offer. With the nut flush and a table full of opps, I'd bet at least 1/2 the size of the pot (to try and lessen the field). If 1/2 pot is over 1/3 of my remaining stack... then I'm shoving, as I'm pot committed. If my bet gets raised, then I'm shoving here. Yes, the opp has 10 outs, so they will win 20% of the time. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
