Default Re: Am I a moron on this hand

I don't see why you would be a moron in this hand. You made a nice bet on the flop, but be aware that if you are called chances are you are possibly being trapped, and that even if you do pull the straight or flush on the turn it may not be good. In other words, be prepared to fold. Just so happens though that you catch the perfect card on the turn. You weren't the moron - the guy who flopped the nut full house was by not checkraising you on the flop was. If he comes over the top on the flop, you must know you're beat and you'd fold. He won't win that big of a pot, but he also won't get trapped into getting his entire $18.25 in on the turn when he's drawing dead.

In short, i'd probably bet the flop as well, but would freeze up if called. If you do pull the royal, then just HOPE the guy was trying to trap you [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Enjoy.

EDIT: I originally said "wouldn't be a moron" in my first sentence. That has been changed [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img].
