View Full Version : Backing myself into a corner

Somehow I don't think that limp - call - semi-bluff - bluff is a recipe for long term success, but it seemed like the best way to play this one.

How would you have played it?

Party $50 NL Sit&Go, blinds are $10/15 (all players have about $1k).

I limp in MP behind 2 EP limpers with A /images/graemlins/heart.gif9 /images/graemlins/spade.gif, SB calls, BB min-raises and everyone calls.
5 players, $150 pot.

Flop: 6 /images/graemlins/club.gif7 /images/graemlins/heart.gif8 /images/graemlins/heart.gif

EP bets $55, I call, BB calls

Turn: K /images/graemlins/heart.gif

EP bets $125, I raise to $500, BB calls, EP folds.

River 3 /images/graemlins/diamond.gif

I go all-in for $415.

Fold pre-flop, its the type of hand that you're going to get in trouble with, there's no need to be Ax unsuited this early on. As for the rest of the hand I thought you played it OK.

I agree don't play this hand under these circumstances. I don't understand any of your other play at all. you definitely painted yourself into that corner.
