Default Funny Hand

I remember reading somewhere that you should try and check quads somewhere . . . I can't believe I actually got action . . .

I cant believe you got action either, your completion preflop tells them you've probably got trips on forth and when you start betting you get raised by a bad flush?!? I love it.

BTW, I usually just call on 3rd and try and hit them later on unless you have alot of loose calling stations to act after you.

I was 3-tabling at the time, and I didn't notice the limper.

Since I'm pretty aggressive anyway, I figured a open-limp would look suspicious. Plus, these guys always think I'm stealing anyway!

You certainly were lucky to make any money. Had it been me in the hand, i would have immediatly hit the fold after you paired your queens, checked it, after raising it on third. And if the fold button were not immediatly available, I would have unplugged my cable. And if that didn't work, I would unplug my computer. And if that didn't work, I would switch off the fuse. And if that didn't work, I would burn down the house. Anything, to get myself quickly out of that hand. What was that caller thinking?

If they think you're stealing, that's a good reason to just bet on fourth.

When someone raises on third and then checks after pairing his door card, alarm bells should go off. I lean towards betting quads on fourth myself. I think the advice in 7CS4AP applies mostly to whne you are playing against thinking players. Against clueless players, I think betting out is the better play.

Even against 3-5o and J-2o? I mean, what can they have where they don't say "geez, he's probably just got queens" and then fold anyways? Letting the opponent make a flush and pay off 3 bets was just right here.

3rd:Completion correct,imo.Looks natural.

4th:Check cries slowplay.I bet & desperately pray for action.

5th:If somebody hit a threatening looking card,you could check & try to look scared.As it is,I would bet.But I'm sure I must be wrong about this.

Nice hand.

I assume the donk that paid you off is on your "buddy list".
On an aggressive table with medium to high ante structure I've had a lot of luck with a full double bet on fourth then checking fifth. They now assume queens only and take over the betting for you.
