  • Losing with a set to a flush

    This is my last hand in today's $2.20 5K guaranteed tourney at 11 pm, after about 20 min of play. Should I play it different?

    Not sure what he was calling with on the flop, and don't see anything wrong with how you played it. Looks like you just fell victim to the suited monkey nuts. Make a note of the donkey and move on. umbup:

      I agree with sugs on making a note on them... will play any 2 suited cards anytime. When you hit the set, the only legit loss is to a set of K's, which didn't happen. I'd get my chips in when I hit the set too, as you were an 84% fav against what they had and 96% against a random hand.

        Thank you!

        Thank you!

        Thus far, out of 4 hands that I submitted here yesterday and today, 3 I played correctly and lost all of them, and in 1 that I played incorrectly, I also lost some chips, but much less than if I played it correctly

          Sounds like you have a few coming your way in the form of variance soon.........GL

            Yes, in slots and in the video poker there are often series of blanks before (and after) hitting the jackpot.

              I'm going to take a different angle here. Shove flop.

              I think by betting out the flop like you did I'm confused. What are you trying to do, bluff the flop or get value?

              If you are getting value what are you getting value from? Do you expect to get a call from A5o, or 8s?

              I think you need to re-evaluate your hand your position and the actions of those behind you. When you make this play you are turning your hand into a bluff. You're no longer looking for a call because you're going to shut down and there are a ton of good turn cards for you, and some bad ones. If you're going to fire this out when you are the UTG raiser and you get flatted, you can take away ALL big kings from their range.

              When you shove flop the only call you can get here is from maybe a spewy player playing KT/K9 hands like an idiot. There is enough in the pot on the flop to just take it down with TT and you can easily rep a bigger King.

              The play here is shoving flop as a bluff, or getting to showdown cheap for a river value bet. Obviously if we checked the flop around I'm betting the turn to make flushes pay.

              If you can bet 240 into this pot and get a caller it's hard to proceed, when you see another blank hit and someone leads out for half pot it's now going to be a 1200ish pot with 400 to call, and you're going to value town yourself anyway in many cases. If you c/f here then you should not PFR UTG with so many to act with TT.
