Default 15/30 Bellagio - flopped nuts

My first post! As a longtime reader of this forum, I've waited a while to post a hand "interesting enough". Here it is. 15/30 at the Bellagio, I'm visiting and new to the table, so I don't know the players. I'm in middle position (7-player game) with K [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img],Q [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] and raise first in. Only the small blind calls.

Flop is 10 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]9 [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]J [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]. [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

SB checks, I bet.

Turn is J [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]. SB checks, I bet, SB raises, I cap.

River is 10 [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Damn. SB leads out.

Your play?

raise since you have his KJ beat [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

in all seriousness though this is difficult to answer without knowing the player. he is leading into you after you capped on the turn with the board paired twice..... but i don't have the ability to make this laydown. maybe he picked up a flush draw on the turn and was just trying to get tricky.... hard to say. my gut tells me your hand was good though. hope it worked out for you...

I think he had an overpair and was ready to fold to a raise. Unless he is a crappy player who would cold call with a T or a J in his hand...anyway I would call for the last bet since the pot is freakin huge. Hope it worked out.

I shake my head and call. A better player probably silently mucks.

I have the feeling you are beaten. I don't think he'd lead out at the river without anything, when you capped the turn before. I put him on Jx. It's definitly a crying call for you.

Default You\'ve confirmed my missplay

Thanks for the comments.

WELL I knew I made a bad decision. I unhappily mucked my hand, "sure" I was beat. This speaks to the dangers of so certainly "putting someone on a hand". I was so sure that the SB had a jack on the turn, and was equally sure I had his trips beat.

After my laydown, SB plopped his hand down face up, showing 7 8 for the low end straight.

The good news - I took a walk, had a winning session, and a great trip!!

Thanks for the input all.

Ouch, I just got back from the Bellagio and played in mostly the 15-30. I noticed people will blast away with raises and reraises all the way to the river with middle pair no matter what the board might look like. I bet if you had played a little longer you would have seen how super aggressive (and a tad loose) the players are and would have called on the river.

Sounds like it all worked out though [img]/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
