#HandMalta & #BOMflop

I will raise to 26k to protect my hand and to get value if he is going for a lucky flush with just one spade and miss

 

 

#HandMalta #BOMflop

So 4th spade now hits the turn and the Swedish pro now opts to check. My instinct here is to check back and see the river for free.

Again the money bubble looms and no need to crazy at this stage. The check could be a perfectly laid trap for you to bet into. By checking back you exercise restraint and pot control. Peeling the river for free allows you to try hit that full house.

just check 

 

 

 

 

It is nice seeing K on the flop, but it still remains very dangerous with 3 spades in it.

As we suggested villain called our preflop reraise and now he continues the pressure with his bet on the flop.

He is bluffing with the high probabality, but still he can have at least 1 spade in his hand.

We still have very strong hand and we should take the bank now or make it very big to have our profit good if opponent calls.

So, it is obvious we should reraise. And the size of reraise should be about 36.000.

TURN : check ;)

Here i am ,with top set -sweet- although its a monotone flop  i dont see many scenarios where i am behind my oponent.

Since he is a bit tilted i might consider him calling my preflop reraise with a hand like AsJs or myabe As10s-even in this case i still have my chances - but with this kind of hand i dont think he would bet the flop because i am the preflop agressor ,in most cases this would be a check/call  or check/raise play from my oponent.

A bet against the preflop aggressor when  out of position is a pretty rare thing.

So after his 12k bet i would raise it to something like 33k hoping to get some value from hands like AsKc ,AsQx,JsJx,10s10x or -why not- from AA or QQ.

Hmm,ok lets imagine that i'm in vilain position and if I have a flush, in this hand i'll try to set a trap,just check-call,that means vilain not has a flush if he decide to bet 12000.so he comes with draws.

In this case i need reraise him at least 24000,and pray that he don't want reraise me.

FLOP K♠Q♠7♠

other Raise,

I think
"as I was stupid not to go all in pre-flop"

now

CALL, with a beautiful smile on his face. !!!

now I CALL to the end, the river !!!

and keep smiling.

 

 

I have already set and
You can still bend a card, be bluff, or to four KKKK.

 

 

 

 

so many smileys ? :D It wasn't supposed to keep ..

#HandMalta #BOMflop

Well top set is great but the flush is live. I am not concerned about the lead into me the bet of 10k would get laydowns from a very wide range of hands. He would be betting almost anything on this flop. If he has AA with spade I am better than 68% and I am in great shape. I raise to 31,500 in total. This is going to polarise his position. I am not going to fold to a reraise shuv but this bet reduces the liklihood of a flat call. I have 87,000 still behind so I am still able to see the turn with an open mind.
