You win a RKH deck of cards!

 

 

Here is my analysis of the hand:

In a professional tournament, my sizings would be different. I take into great consideration the amateur level of this tournament.

 

Pre Flop

If we were in position, I would definitely raise here. But being in the small blind, I don’t have a problem with limping, to be honest. Especially since a player who limps instead of raising is more likely to call a raise, especially while being in position.
On the other hand, he shows a lot of weakness and might easily give up the flop since he has less than 40 bb and we showed a lot of strength by raising preflop oop.

I would raise here, probably 350. Mostly to not undergo the hand.

 


Flop

Pot: 300

Now that we just called, I really want to take control over the hand, for three reasons:.

-it’s a great catch but the flop is still dangerous.

-too often, the two players will check back with hands they’d call a bet with.

-I want to get value out of the drawing hands, lower sets and overpairs

So I would lead here.

Now, advoghado32 chose to check. In such a scenario, I would definitely check raise.

I feel they are likely to pay a lot with decent draws so I would raise as high as 950.

 


Turn

(I know it’s not asked but I still have something to say about it)

Pot: 1550

I would bet the turn. You have a really strong hand and you need to make the pot bigger. I would not bet too much though since we really still want him to call with a draw or whatever hand he’d feel could have a chance here. We fear virtually nothing and we don’t want to scare him away.

I would bet something like 850. That still gives us the possibility to take his entire stack on the river if he hits a draw.

 

 

River

Pot: 1550

Now this is a great card. His stack is bigger than the pot though. Shoving would a clear overbet.

I could like this option since it’s coherent with our previous action. He’ll most likely think that we were drawing ourselves and that we just hit. He will fold all of his hands that are not straights no matter what is our bet so we better get the most value from those (straights).

BUT he clearly still can have a 5 high straight, here, the way we played the hand, and a shove will make him fold that. So I would bet a bit ¾ of the pot for him to call with A-5 straight. Loads of players will 3 bet shove 67 here.

I don’t think betting smaller will ever lead him to bluff or to call with something weaker than a straight, on that board.

So bet 1050 or so.

 

Once again congratulations to you all! It's been a real pleasure to read your posts.

 

And see you soon on RKH

@Keith attention :) you T-shirt is coming a bit latter - in september, but I won't forget to send it

PLS send me your size!

Congratulations to all the winners and Thanks to everyone who participated and like my posts, sorry if I was not very clear. Special thanks to @Elena RKH for help  me @RKH  for the opportunity and of course @Lucille Cailly to do the hand analysis, very useful 

#mystery55

I am thinking it is a great place to shuv. The way the hand has played out means a lot of hands you beat call and there is only 1 hand that beats you. I think it is a great spot to ship all in!

Mystery Hand 2.0 - Round 3

#Mystery55 @Advoghado I think the action you took is going to be a small value bet around 450 to try and induce a raise from a straight but to also price in the over pairs/over cards into a call :) 

For me if I were playing the hand I like a slight overbet to the pot here but not a shove (just to keep it wierd), I think the most likely hand to be in there is the Ax straight at this point and based on the previous streets. I don't see us getting value from any other hand from a tight player as it is suspicious to min raise the flop on a not very scary board and check the turn. Does anyone raise give up nowadays? :) If the hand gets shown down a similar over the pot size bet later in the turny looks strong and a good bluffing tool. Our opponent can get away from over pairs and high cards so many times and maybe the Ax straight if he has Daniel Negreanu's good day hand reading skills but never a 6x straight regardless of the size of the bet I feel, so make it big big big to make up for all their negative value! If he has quads so be it, that's poker!

ROUND 3:

advoghado32 - checked

eky2 - checked

 

The RIVER: 3♥

advoghado32 [guess what I did]

 

What do you think I did? What would YOU have done?

 

I think that you think, that you want to get as much money in the pot as possible and will bet 3/4 pot.

 

In this situation we are only behind to 22, Its a possibility but I think we have to treat our hand as the nuts.

The 3 on the river is more than likely a good card as it I think it has just made the straight they were chasing.

But it is possible to be a negative card for us because if they have an overpair, they are likely to put us on the straight and be able to fold to  bet that is to big.

I am definetly betting here, it is just a question of how much.

EKY has 3095 behind and there is 1550 in the pot. I would like to get all of EKYs money in there.

We could bet 3095 but I think EKY will think twice before calling a 2x pot size bet.

So I am going to opt to try and get him to make the decision to put the rest of his chips in.

I will bet half pot(775) hoping eky has hit his straight and decides to push over the top of us.

We should definetly get a call here from the straight.

We should get a call with a sigh from an overpair.

What we really want though is for him to think he has hit the straight and out drawn us and push all in.

I dont think its likely but its poker and anything can happen.

 

So heres hoping for the straight getting it in bad :)

And fingers crossed its not pocket 2s.

 

  Answer coming today :)

#Mystery55 

I'm sure Your opponent got an A. As You told this is a tight table, so if You go all-in Your opponent could think You have a stronger straight.

Pot: 1550.

In this case You bet almost half of the pot, 800.

I think this is a good idea because Your opponent will call that if he got an A. So, I bet 800 too.

advoghado32 [guess what I did]


What do you think I did? What would YOU have done?

first thing i'd do is ask why eky2 has not acted first like he was supposed to , or ask advogado why he checked out of turn . Probably a typo , so i'll assume that eky checked first . With 1300 in the pot i don't see any  reason to check behind. if we assume that obn the flop he had small overpairs, 3x and smaller sets I think checking behind on the turn is losing value. All of that range is going to call a bet at least and can't really see anything that folding.checking behind gives him a free look with his overpairs at hitting a better boat than you and his boats are calling  or raising any bet that you make. I'd probably have bet 750 to keep building the pot to about 2800

 

Again , having to assume that eky checked , and since you checked behind turn i think that if he had 22 here , or a boat he would have lead out on the river for fear that you would just check behind on the river as well.With a pair on the board he may elect to call any reasonable bet you make with his straights/overpairs incase you shoved over his bet so that he might have to fold in his eyes the best hand..I think that you probably went for value and bet around 1000 chips . If you'd bet 70 on turn  eky would only have 2695 chips left with a pot of 2800. You could then  bet 2000 chips here and get called by straights and get shoved over by smaller boats and posibly by his tiop end straights as well  i.e 6x or 67. Ax will probably fold to a shove fearing 6x at least and not wanting to go out  on such a wet board with lots of hands that beat his Ax.

let's see  this afternoon :)
