I Got Scolded A Fish!

Postby mrpossum » Tue Sep 09, 2008 10:06 pm

It was down to 3 handed 6 ppl SNG.
K10 on the BTN was fold fold fold the previous few rounds around the whole table so decided to gamble abit try to steal the blinds haha.(Fish already ?)
Raise it up to 400 bucks blinds 50/100.
BB calls and flop comes J68.
villian fires 100 bucks and i call.
turn comes an A. he checks and (thinking i can take down with the ace on board) i fire 600 out of a 700 pot. villian calls.
Q comes on the river i hit my backdoor straight. villian shoves me i call.
He shoves 66 for trips.
Started calling me fish, joker, clown, donkey and stuff.
Was it really a bad play ?

I only made 1 call with air which was on the flop.
And its only 100 more to go for a 500 pot ? I didn't give him credit for anything betting just 100BB ?

it's a perfectly alright play. no fishy moves. you got lucky, yeah, but you didn't make any significant mistakes earlier on. if anything the bet at the turn can be smaller, but it's not really a major mistake.

Hey statix thanks for the reply and comment.
Hope thats true, would like to seek more kakis opinions.
Would generally like to improve my play so i would like to make less mistakes.
But ultimately is this really my fault ?

nope there is nothing wrong with your play. well the bet at the flop was ok to call because you were getting 5-1 for your money. and 5-1 is VERY good already. yeah.. the turn bet the villian should have raised you after you bet the 600. if you called his raise, then really you are the joker.. haha

Lol yea guess it would be pretty funny to call a 4 outer on the turn with poor odds but yea glad to hear that its not that bad a play again.
