  • Advice on where I went wrong

    I was in a live game last night,54 players and we are down to 2 tables of 8, I have 16k and sitting 1 before the button I get A 10 suited, blinds are 400/800 and folded round to me I raise to 2.4k and only the BB calls flop A,K,2 rainbow and the BB checks I bet 2.4k and he flat calls,Turn is a 7 now 4 diff suits on the board so no flush worries or straight really BB checks and I bet 4.8k again he flat calls, River is a 3 ,again the BB checks now I am starting to smell a rat so just check the river , He turns K 3 off and has rivered me with 2 pair. Not being that good, where did I go wrong with this ? Any advice or thoughts would be most welcome. Oh and 2 hands later I shove with QQ and get horsed with 7-10 off again on the river, can handle that one just Donked. Thanks Gate

      Sure sounds like a calling station that just got lucky to improve on the river. Did he show this style earlier?? If no, flatting would have concerned me for sure. If he was calling lite in the past, value betting as you did was the way to go. Just didn't work out well... this time.

      Enjoy,

        Thanks guys, I only joined his table about 5 hands previous so couldn't really get a proper read on him, ruined my chances of a decent payout I think. Enjoy the fall Dale,

          Can't find the HH so I will just give the info as best I can from Wed. Prem.

          -dealt Ah 10h and folded to me in the cutoff
          -been silent for quite awhile so I raise 2.3x
          -folds to BB who calls

          -flop comes A 10 3
          -raise a little less than half the pot
          -BB calls

          -turn shows a 7
          -bet about half pot again
          -BB calls

          -river shows 7
          -hmmm, bet half pot again
          -BB raises...knew something was very wrong but wrongly just had to see....

          BB shows....... K7o.....and has trip 7's....

          Ask myself, how did I get here again????? Sound familiar to your hand Gate?

              Too much like my hand right up to the board pairing which in my case would have been sweet as long as it was not the 3. Enjoy your swim with the sharks and if you need it Greenpeace can be contacted on 0800 111 HELP...
