Unbelievably, a guy laid down pocket kings on an uncoordinated 8 high flop today. He was convinced I had flopped a set because of a couple
Of previous hands in which I laid down crap but told him i had laid down a much bigger hand. The guy next to me started teasing me saying that the guy had my number. I replied, "yeah, I better have the nuts against him next time."

Then the kings hand happened. I raised from early position with 99. He reraised 3x my raise. I hesitated and decided to see a flop because I thought he might be feeling like he can win against me with anything. The flop was 8 high. He bet half the pot and I shoved which was a bit more than what was in the pot. I obviously didn't know he had a monster like kings, but his cbet seemed tentative and I wasn't going to fold with an overpair there. another great read!! Lol

He asked me if i wanted him to call. I told him "no, I'm happy to take it down as it is. Big enough pot. "

Then he folded the kings face up. I was shocked.

By the way, I take no credit for his fold. It was a horrible read on my part and he misinterpreted my shove as representing a monster.

 bad play on his part ..

most people flat call with set in your spot

shove is usually a hand KK beats  99-QQ or its aa.

 If you had stated you laid down bigger hands before, I might think that you were on tilt in this spot, and more likely to get it all in with top pair, or a small overpair or even an underpair.

This guy is a level 2 thinker that had a major misread.  What do I have?  I have pocket Kings with an 8 high flop weeeeeeeeeee!  Oh no, he re-raises, he must have set, must fold!

Lol. The whole table gave him crap for it. He was a nice guy even after they started really letting loose with the criticism. I told him, "you know what, had I turned over a set, you would have looked like a hero. You couldn't know I didn't have one."

But then I made a mental note to only showdown a strong hand with him next time.

Exactly, I'd have to put him on aces or kings there to shove for value if I had a set.

andre - Wreckker,

I just bought a new car today. You have no idea what youre missing. Or maybe you remember good games, but these are GREAT games.

 I get reports every week from my friend who even last year WAS BAD at NL now he is just decent and plays a basic TAG game mostly and is doing well in 5-10 and occasional 10-20.


Online site where I work games are so bad that there are literally world class plo8 players playing 1-2 and 2-4...it just sucks.


Im limited to AP anmd BOdog living in WA too= more suck.

I may start taking sort trips to LA and houstin again just grind in live cash again fatre the series
