      This isn't that well played since I wanted to raise the river but ended up misclicking. :s_confused: Still the results are amusing.

      how about raising at some point in the hand? turn seems like a good idea.....especially when he bets like 1/5 of the pot

      It was mostly an issue of stack size. I wanted to see some interest from the big stack before I put down the hammer.

      It is probably also worth noting that I had two "railbirds" sitting behind me during this hand and we were laughing so hard I almost time-out folded the turn. :D Laughing is very minus EV.

      Maybe I was wrong thinking I could get the shorty in pretty easy on any street, but that's roughly what was going through my head.

      Hows that badly played? ?( if he bet on the flop / turn the SB would of definately folded. on the river you should of pushed but like you said you misclicked. you got more by slow playing your hand ... IMO lucky you were in the big blind for that monster :f_biggrin:

      No He was lucky the other players did the job for him by giving him the money because playing passive is not profitable in the long run

      keep reading the articles and you will understand why

      And if flush hadn't hit on river? Then he won't get any money from flushdraws, while if he bets turn, he will likely get flush draw all-in. Or let's say he has KK, JJ, Qx, something like that. Much easier to get money in when there is a draw on board.

      It was only for mild entertainment value. I probably should have thrown it in Fun and Off-topic.

      it was cooler anyway. And why do you think raise on the flop would be better? Kings wont go anywhere no matter where I bet and with raise I am only losing value from flash draws.

      The simpler rule is while you are ahead raise, raise , raise.


      The laws of poker is you make money by your oponent mistake and by mistake you mean would you have playedthe same if you would have seen your oponent's cards.

      When you went all in you made a mistake as you were not ahead anymore. you would have managed to go all in on the flop even though the result would have been the same you would have made the right decision at the time.

      A nice lesson in why not to slowplay this level. I'd have gone broke on the flop as quickly as I could and have done so loads of times. The Ace on the turn is irrelevant to the situation as it's after the fact. Oh no, they both folded, dammit! So take the pot.

      Please don't slowplay these flops for exactly this reason. If the flop was K74, it is very safe and only reason why slowplaying can hurt your set is that you won't have a big pot. But with KK7 board your hand is vulnerable. All As, Ks Qs and Js are scary. You don't know if your hand is best anymore.
