View Full Version : $16 Turbo - Shaking Off The Rust

12-26-2005, 10:43 PM
In hindsight, I am thinking this is a clear fold but none the less wanted to check. Of note is my PF raise it is to much (slid the bar to far) but because of that my read on flop was completely different. How could villain have a 5 or an an overpair and just smooth call PF? Also sorry no hand converter.

Villian can have anything in a $16. I've reraised all-in preflop and been called by 76o at the $16's.

It was sooted so you shouldn't be surprised at q5

Preflop is okay, 100-120 is better but you know that. I'd make a larger raise on the flop, maybe raise to to 600 or so, but I'm definitely calling that push. You'll see two clubs, 78, A6, etc.

Preflop raise is too big, as you know; I think around 100 is good. Get all in on the flop every time here. Most of the time you will be shown a lower pocket pair, A6, or a draw. Most lower buy in players love to slowplay bigger hands, you will very rarely be shown a hand that beats you here. You got unlucky to happen to run into a big hand this time, but don't be results oriented. Getting all in on the flop in this situation is definitely +EV.
