After about 2 min of thinking it trought, I mucked and said: "Nice set of three's".

He looked surprised, toke is card and turn then face up...

He had 3[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]3[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]

I'm happy whit the fold but I got in trouble whit a hand I propably should have folded preflop in the spot I was in (1st caller of the raise whit 3 players plus the blinds to speek, I was 3 off the buton, not 2 like I said in my original post, my bad.) You guys fold K[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]Q[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] here preflop?

Also, a friend of mine argued that a smaller raise would have accomplished the same thing on the flop, say making it 120$ or 125$ would have saved me a little here when behind and got me the pot anyway when ahead.

Default Re: Top two whit lot of action

A coin-flip when you're getting 3:1 on your call is not a hard choice.

I'd put him on AA or AK. It's a very scary board for the over-pair/top-pair, and he's willing to take down the pot right now. QQ are a possibility too, btw, but doubtful considering there's two already accounted for.

You pretty much hit one of the best flops you could -reasonably- hope for with the hand you have. If you can't call, why play the hand in the first place?

Just my opinion, FWIW.

I think his only possible hands here are 33 or a huge draw, probably J[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]T[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]. From there it comes down to your read.

This, FWIW, is why you should always pay attention to your opponents outside your hands. Watching the way he does what he does will give you clues as to the strength of his hand.

Very simple math, you're either way behind, or he's drawing big. I put that basically as you losing three times out of four (lose when you're behind, he wins half when you're ahead). I have to have a VERY strong read he's on a draw to make that call.

I also liked the raise to $150. A min raise would have been weak.
