11-26-05 [poker]This is the closest thing to a mistake I made today :
Soliton posts small blind (200) chukb posts big blind (400) ** Dealing down cards ** Roscoe451 raises (900) to 900 SNK21 calls (900) Soliton folds. chukb calls (500) ** Dealing Flop ** : [ 2d, 6s, 6c ] chukb checks. Roscoe451 checks. SNK21 bets (1400) chukb folds. Roscoe451 folds.
He min raises, so I call with almost any two cards in the BB. (I had KT, but that's irrelevant). On the flop, SNK bets and I'm almost certain he has nothing, probably two overs. I thought about pushing, and wound up deciding to fold. Certainly it's possible he has a low pair, but it's more likely he has something like A7 or TJ. One of the things that worried me most was not that he had a pair, but that he might call a push with something like ace high, which would be beating me. Of course an argument could be made that they were playing so badly there's no need for me to risk my chips here, that if I fold I'll be able to get them in later in a much safer scenario (which I did).
