11-22-05 [poker]I guess I screwed up on this hand.
Seat 2: TARPONHUNTER (5955) Seat 7: jverson1984 (8965) Seat 8: chukb (5080) chukb posts small blind (150) TARPONHUNTER posts big blind (300) ** Dealing down cards ** Dealt to chukb [ Ac, Qh ] jverson1984 calls (300) chukb raises (750) to 900 TARPONHUNTER folds. jverson1984 calls (600) (pretty standard 3x raise with AQ, maybe I should have raised more because I'm out of position and there's a limper before me) ** Dealing Flop ** : [ 8h, 4c, Jh ] chukb bets (1100) jverson1984 raises (2200) to 2200 (normally I'd be thinking semi-bluff; he could have the hearts or the str8 draw, but I've never seen this guy semibluff before. Normally he's just calling his draws. Of course he still might be semibluffing). chukb calls (1100) (ugh. I hate my hand now, but it's beating a lot of things he might have here. Of course he may have the jack.) ** Dealing Turn ** : [ 5c ] chukb checks. jverson1984 bets (2200) chukb folds. (he bets enough to put me allin. 3/5 of my stack is now in the pot, so I can't fold, can I? I'm worried he has the jack, and if so I'm maybe on a 6 outer, and definitely not getting the odds for it). ** Summary ** Main Pot: 8700 Board: [ 8h 4c Jh 5c ] TARPONHUNTER balance 5655, lost 300 (folded) jverson1984 balance 12365, bet 5300, collected 8700, net +3400 chukb balance 1980, lost 3100 (folded)
I think the key moment was on the flop. I probably should have gone allin or folded right there. If he calls I might have some outs, and he may be on the draw. I suppose it's also possible he has a hand like 77, any pair below jacks, which is actually beating me but might fold to an allin on the flop.
I guess I also could have just checked into the flop, I didn't need to lead at him. Then I could have seen what he would do, maybe check-raised him or check-called or just folded and got out with a good stack still intact.
