$25+2 turbo. One read: Villian is an idiot. I've played w/ him on several occasions -- witnessing horrific play w/ his apparent rich-dead-uncle's willed BR.

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t20 (8 handed) converter (http://www.selachian.com/tools/bisonconverter/hhconverter.cgi)

Hero (t1220)
MP1 (t1490)
MP2 (t1080)
CO (t1980)
Button (t1770)
SB (t1420)
BB (t2790)
UTG (t1750)

I'm UTG w/AKo (no heart), raise to T80
Villian is MP2, calls -- everyone else folds.

Flop: (t190) K/images/graemlins/heart.gif, 3/images/graemlins/heart.gif, 7/images/graemlins/heart.gif <font color="#0000FF">(4 players)</font>

I bet T150 on flop, villian makes it T300......

And the award for alliterative titles goes to...

Ahem, as to the question, I think you have to push or fold to villains RR (right idea?). Given your read, I tend to push, let him show me the ace of hearts and sniffle if a heart shows up. I think villain's being an idiot indicates that he's on a wide enough range of hands that getting all your money in here will be a good move over time. Usually you'll take down the pot or take his whole stack, ocaisonally he makes his flush, and ocaisionally he already has a flush. If the player weren't an idiot I'd fold and keep the ~1000 chips I still have. Thoughts?

I call and push a non heart turn.

Yeah, for some reason I was thinking you'd have to call a bet on the turn, but I suppose you don't. In that case I like call/pushing a non-heart more.

[thanks for the replies]

yeah......i let it rip on top of his raise to see 85 /images/graemlins/heart.gif. it felt a 'wee' bit reckless. in hindsight, a holding like that should have been expected. ahh, but we WILL meet again! (with index finger pointed skyward triumphantly /images/graemlins/grin.gif).

Yeah, when you said idiot i wondered if he might have JTs, 78s, 36s...all sorts of hands that should be let go given your preflop raise. Ouch
