  • Str=Flush Gut-Shot & OE-ed Str Draw

    This hand was immediately following being sucked out on w/ A-A to a back-door flush-draw and I was no doubt on tilt but still recognized my hand for what it was and didn't play under any tilt factor that blinded me to seeing a speculative hand as being +EV.. It was only the tenth hand and difficullt to gather any significant reads on viliian.. What I'm looking for are opinions as to any other way I could've/should've played this hand.. I understand that my bet on the turn may have been erronous, but I was tring to rep the A as villian seemed to be representing a K on the flop and I was hoping do induce a fold by disguisng my turn bet as one for value.. Villian having A-K never crossed my mind, and even had it I felt pretty good about my chances of a 'get there'..

    In any event, I was drawing to 15 outs; one of them being a str-flush and eight a flush, and the other six a 9-K str.. Pretty decent, IMO..

    Thanks in advance,

    Raise flop and be willing to get it in if reraised. If you raise it to 165ish, someone who 3b's you will make it 385-425ish, and you'll have a nice amount to 5b ship and leverage fold equity, with good hand equity if called.

      After review and consideration of your advice, Dave, I will definitely follow your suggestion in the future.. I know it appears as if I donk it quite a bit (because in retrospect of events, I do)..

      I've elected to play little if any Poker over the next few days as it's review, study, and assessment time.. I'm making some great runs, but no-doubt lacking in a few areas.. Before I make an attempt to invest anymore money playing Poker, I'm going to invest some time learning Poker..

      Thanks a bundle for you thoughts.. It's easy to see how correct your line of thought is when reviewing my play.. I think I often rush my play too much and need to spend more time determining what it is that I'm trying to accomplish each and every time I put money into the pot..

      Thanks again..!
