View Full Version : Inducing a bluff then....folding? ugh

When he checked the river, I was sure that UTG+1 didn't have me beat. I was also sure that MP would be betting at the pot regardless. But I'm a girlie man.

Anyone call the river or play the turn differently?

is this a $11, $22, or a $33?

MP1 started the hand with t405 (curious how he lost half his stack in the first level). I would be really surprised if he had ANY piece of the board on the flop, because I've found that a stack of this size will typically push with any piece. Odd that he check/called your flop bet. Smells like a draw.

Turn: don't think the A helped him, unless he was trying to ck/r. Don't see that very much from a stack that size this early. Would expect him to try to take the pot down...he needs chips.

The 4/images/graemlins/diamond.gif river only helps 23 or 44 (assuming that he previously didn't have a piece and doesn't have 2 pair). I think you're ahead a good chunk of the time and he either missed a draw or has an under pocket.
