View Full Version : Obvious fold?

12-29-2004, 08:14 PM
PLO $1-2 Blinds
HERO has 5 /images/graemlins/heart.gif9 /images/graemlins/club.gif9 /images/graemlins/spade.gifj /images/graemlins/heart.gif in MP with medium stack
7 others see flop for $2
Flop is J /images/graemlins/diamond.gifJ /images/graemlins/spade.gif7 /images/graemlins/spade.gif
EP (big stack) bets the pot ($14)
Along w/ everyone else, I fold.

It seems to me that this is an obvious fold. Even though I flopped trips, I've got to think that Villian either has the other J or 77. If he's got the other jack and is not full, then I'm probably out-kicked. Even if I were fill up, it still might not be good. Also, if I call and do not improve, there's a flush draw to worry about.

This seems like one of those lay-downs you've got to make, but am I thinking about this the wrong way?

yep you got that right, standard play is fold in this spot.
