  • What is your opinion ?

    Is this hand a case of being married to your cards ? or a case of can't see the wood for the trees ?

How can he think that he has the best hand with that board ?

      calling with rockets with 2 limpers in the pot is a is a disaster in the making

      Bad play

      of course he's married to his cards, he want more players in the pot so that he could win as many chips as possible he limps because he wants more passengers.

      Bad Bad Play

      if only he knew that he can raise PRE

        Hell, this is tricky, I thought I had posted this in this section.

          very interesting.. in a not so good way for your opps. I'd be making a bunch of notes on the play of these opps to use against them in the future.

          preflop: I can see the opp with 99 limping after everyone else. The player with AA should absolutely be raising preflop. 34o limping being the 2nd person into the pot is really loose.

          flop: the 99 player leads out with an overpair and gutshot straight draw (what they should do). 34 opp calls with OESD, not bad, as they've got equity. The AA opp raises, but not enough.

          turn: replay of the flop basically. 99 leads, 34 calls, AA raises, both call

          river: both the 34 and 99 make straights and the AA opp has two pair. I don't get the bet by the player with 99 here. They hit top straight and make a very small lead bet. This opp should be making a value bet with the straight. With a pair and 4 to a straight on the board, the AA player should drop right here, as someone most likely has a straight (or worse for them, a full house). I can understand the 34 player calling, as they do have bottom straight.

          I think the AA player was married to the hand and misplayed it by not raising pre, more on the flop and more on the turn. By keeping the pot small, they let the others stay in the pot and they both hit a straight.

              aa v 99 v 34

              passive poker rears it head aa limp possibly when early positon to loose raisers behind but the post flop weak patheic raise got what it deserved , and both 99 and 43 fished a result and of course 43 overbet was only getting looked up by 99,, as for aa either he was very very tired or he s on the early stages of developement

                not sure if serious.
                bets 180 leaving 100 behind in 4k+ pot, where he has been reraised on both streets.

                  well like the other guys already mentioned the A A hand put up the worst play here ,but i think the BB with the poket 9's made a mistake too preflop by just calling . i think atleast a 4 bb raise after 2 limpers would off been better there ( not knowing the guy has the aces).this is just my opinion offcourse .

                    making top straight and betting 180 into a 4k+ pot with 100 behind... they should have just shoved to start with.
