      Just wonder what you would do playing this hand

      The TV show is Poker Den - The Big Game II
      This is a 24 hour cash game broadcast on British TV Channel 5


      UTG Tony G
      UTG+1 Ian Frazer
      MP1 Hoyt Corkins
      MP2 Robert Williamson III A :heart: Q :heart:
      CO Todd Brunson
      BU Max Pescatori
      SB Chris Ferguson
      BB Neil Channing ( 3 cashes in the WSOP Main Event )
      SB $50, BB $100

      3 fold , MP2 raises $400 , 2 fold BB calls

      ($875)Flop Q :diamond: 4 :club: 9 :spade:
      BB raises $600 , MP2 raises $1000 , BB calls $1000

      ($4075)Turn Q :spade:
      BB checkBB raises $4000 , MP2 Calls $2000

      ($18075) 10 :heart:
      BB raises $13200 all-in , MP2 ?

      what would you do in this position if you were Robert Williamson III and you got Neil Channing easly covered

      Hope its ok to post this video of the game , sorry video is about 12 minutes long but most of it is this hand

      If you include the fact that Williamson knew very well that Channing is very tight player then it is easy to put him on 44 or 99. However it's tought decision ...laying down nut trips with high kicker.OMG, cong, that for sure...but for pro who know his opponent it shouldn't be too hard to fold that one..IMO!

      RWIII raise on the flop is great in a highstakes game vs. thinking opponents, this might induce some raises with air, calls or oop floats because this looks so much like a bluff.

      Turn makes it even more likely, that RWIII is on a pure bluff or semi-bluff, so I think he has to call the turnraise if NC is capable of running a bluff here too.

      But, by the speed of NC's river action it has to be clear, that he has a hand, not only 44/99 but also Q9 or QT where he pealed with on the flop. I don't know how much of a calling station RWIII is and if NC might shove here for value any worse hands, especially given his tight image. So there is not much, RWIII is beating now.
