View Full Version : Decision time after rivering a str8...

Paradise 10+1...level 1, with blinds 5/10...

I have 5 /images/graemlins/heart.gif 7 /images/graemlins/heart.gif out of the BB, and the river brings:

T /images/graemlins/club.gif 8 /images/graemlins/spade.gif 6 /images/graemlins/heart.gif 3 /images/graemlins/heart.gif 9 /images/graemlins/diamond.gif

The pot was unraised PF. On the flop UTG raised it to T30 in a 6-player field. On the turn, he raised it from T10 to T100 to narrow it down to himself, SB, and me. UTG and I both began the hand with T1000, whereas SB had 200 fewer chips.

Now on the river, SB checks, and with the rivered (but not nut) str8 I check, UTG bets T270 to bring the pot to T780, and SB folds...

Do you:

1) Call the bet?
2) Raise all-in?
3) Raise another T270 or so, and call a reraise all-in?
4) Raise another T270 or so, and fold to a reraise all-in?

because it is only a 10+1 I would just push in. More often than not you will split or win.
7J is a pretty unlikely holding, JQ is possible. more likely you are against two pair.

At higher buyin I would just call.
