  • Deep in the Bigger $2.20

    This hand is in the money (just) in the Bigger $2.20, I was kind of unsure of my hand after the flop. but figured I should a least C-bet. Whan I didn't get raised, I was pretty sure my hand was good, and bet accordingly. Any comments appreciated as always, I have this nagging feeling that I missed a play here.

      Nice one Joy I think you did good on a flush and fullhouse board to rake in that many chips. He was probably chasing the flush and maybe you could of gotten some more chase money out of him on the turn, yet at the same time when the river came it would have spooked you more if he had called another bet on the turn because then you might think he has 3 aces or a full. I think you played it well, and heck you won! The check check did give you the info to fire on the river and win the hand, and also the opportunity to bail if the 3rd flush card hit, which is what I think he was floating along for, just my opinion, the hand analysis guys might be able to help you better. I hope you cash big Joy! umbup:

            Wow i totally disagree with the both AQo you have played. The first AQ you should have raised to about 3 BBs, you have a strong hand and you get raised and then fold? he might raise with KQo KJo 89s 77 AJo and obviously also hands that do have you beat. But if you raise yourself and he reraises you, then you know better where you stand. and WTF?!? you reraise allin on the flop with AQ with top pair, I don´t like this play. you are losing alot of equity here unless you have a good read on your opponent he will call with worse hands like KQ QJ JJ TT etc. but in general you will only be called by AQ and better. The dude has a weak hand and sucks out, it happens. But I don´t like the allin play. hope my feedback helpsumbup:

              Hi Joy! In the first hand, I would make a std raise preflop to 2k. When the flop has an A and also a flush draw, I would make a c-bet that would price out all of the draws (1/2 pot as there realistically shouldn't be a combo draw). When the opp calls behind and the turn doesn't help me nor a draw, I'm going to check for pot control. With the river being another ace, it's less likely that the opp has one, so I'm making a value bet on the river and would size it at just under 1/2 pot (6500). The AQ hand. If I'm not going to call a std raise from behind me, I'm going to muck it immediately. If I'm going to limp behind, while I won't call a shove, I would be willing to call a std raise if I was going to get involved with the hand.... the same as if I was the one making the standard raise. The exit hand. AQ with postion, especially with a late position raise especially if they had been stealing, is a play that I want to make and I'll call their raise and see the flop in position. The flop gives me top pair and the opp c-bets and sizes it large enough to price out everything but a combo draw and I wouldn't expect anything that has a combo draw to be raising preflop. Due to this, I'm calling behind and will re-evaluate after the turn. I also don't want to shove with what may not be the best hand. There are many card combos that will give me value, but I want to have an out if any of the draws complete. Shoving the river... totally different story, as there are really only a very small number of hands that have me beat (sets or KQ). I would get it in on the river, but don't want to shove earlier.. until I see the rest of the board. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
