Fold preflop? Are you kidding me?

I agree w/ the rest of what you said though; definitely check behind on the turn, and as OP played it, I think it's a pretty standard fold, as he's likely drawing pretty thin . . .

Villian does not have a flush. My guess is two pair something like q 10 without a spade. He doesn't want u to catch a free spade or higher 2 pair. FOLD.

I think this is a fold preflop as well - I hate unsuited high cards that don't equal AK. You better know your opponent's MP opening range to call here (and how he plays postflop).

In my opinion, your play on the turn here was absolutely horrendous. Getting CR'ed here is a disaster. If Villain has a set or a low flush (both or which are possible), you just gave away your chance to draw to the remaining spades. Just check behind.

If you decide to bet (which is a bad idea), make it a real one, not $350 into a $980 dollar pot. You probably are behind and you have no chance of causing a better hand to fold with that bet.

This turn bet was so weak that we can't absolutely rule out the possiblity of a bluff CR with something like J [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]Tx.

I'm a lurker by nature. It's just my style. But can't you fellas at least agree that the above decision is read/player dependent.
