  • Tricky river decision or easy fold?

    I have recently been moved to this table in mtt (sunday storm) so I don't have any stats/reads on the opponent other than few hands I have observed him play. Generally he has been playing premium hands and comes in with a raise each time he enters the pot. It folds around to me in sb and I complete with Js,10s which was a mistake on my part I think but at the same time I did not want to bloat the pot when I am out of position against a bigger stack in bb. Considering how the hand has played to the river, is it easy fold on the river when I have missed my draw? Can I rep Queen in that spot or raising the opponents river bet screams that I have missed my draws?

    Did you delete the data in the replayer? Maybe it's my browser, but I'm not getting data. My money's on my browser...

      I'd have raised pre. I normally don't like completing from the SB.... makes your hand seem weak to start with, so I normally try to either raise or fold.

      On the flop, with 2nd pair and a flush draw, I'd have led out on the flop. Raising pre, then leading will make your hand look much stronger, so you might get the opp to fold here.

      If the opp would call both bets, then I'm checking the turn, as you almost know that they'll have a Q.

      If you're still in by the river, it's an easy fold when you see the Q, because this way, you'd know that's what the opp hand (so you can't try to rep one) and can get out of the hand.
