      Hi ... i really think that looks like a bad fold dude ...

      The way you played it it looks like you have a weak queen or a draw...

      I think he can have ace king so much of the time here ....

      if he has a set or ten jack i think you have to pay it off...


      His range looks like 8-8 / 9-9 / 10-J / A-8 / A-9 / A-x :spade: / A-K

      A-Q / Q-Q / A-A possible but seriously unlikely...

      Also he could have raised the flop with a hand like 10-x spades (gut-shot+flush-draw) and now be bluffing...

      Also ace is a great scare card since you under repped your hand...

      I think because you played so passively there are just too many possibilities that you own ...

      I'm not loving calling as played but I'm happy enough... like i say you played passively and never raised for info so if he has a hand that you fear in this spot then just pay it off... Your hand is good way too often to fold.

      GL at the tables :s_cool:


      EDIT: also how loose is he? .. could he have flopped ups?

      he wasn't very loose, he was a solid player, and i thought he might have a set or AK

      Again.. this makes me slightly less happy about calling, but like i say as played i think you gotta pay him off...

      hopefully the judge will shed a bit more light on the subject ...

      gl at the tabled dude :s_cool:

      Lol oops didn't realize k on the riv ... that's real sucky... that makes this spot so much tougher ...

      I'm really divided on this one now.. personally probably leaning toward folding... (as played)

      Personally i would have probably check raised the turn all in ...

      Hmm I'd play the hand very differently. PF I'd 3bet, but as played I'd bet like 0,7 on that dangerous flop. After the flop raise I'd call and donkbet/fold turn. On the river blockbet/fold or c/c.

      As played it's hard on the river because you played it weak. But I wouldn't fold, he could have busted draw and weaker 2p: 98, Q8, Q9, A8(spades), KQ and busted flush draws/straight draws. Don't forget he raised on CO, he could have any kind of trash...

      If I´d c/c turn I wouldn´t really fold river on that card.
      I think very reasonable play is also c/rai since board is very drawy and he can b/f or b/c there with two pair or draws
      And most of the times he doesn´t have AK, since AK would likely not raise flop

      yes, c/rai means check/raise all-in. Pot is quite big and he don´t really have that much left that you can c/r smaller amount
