Should I have called?

Postby Lynn » Fri Nov 21, 2008 11:33 am

Preflop i was dealt [As] [Qh] i raised to $9.

Norbit called and 2 other players folded.

Flop comes up [Ad] [Tc] [6c]. Norbit checked and i raised to $18.

Norbit reraised to $40. I called.

Turn comes [9h] . I bet $45...norbit went all in $348.

I folded and he mucked. Can't get this hand off my mind.

why did you even bother to bet the turn in the first place?

1/2 live game?

raise more preflop.

I agree with charles. You were better off reraising/fold on the flop than bet/folding the turn.

But yes, you should fold there. Though, there's a slight chance all he had was Ax of clubs.

maybe could had check turn and re-evaluated, probably folding to a strong turn bet.
As how it when, I would tend to fold as he's screaming set or 2 pairs ( but at some rare times it could be a very daring semi-bluff so its good if you could provide some reads or the image of your current opponent)

i bet on the turn to discourage a draw. I was putting him on flush draw. But going all in was too much for me. i didnt want to wait to see if i river a queen or an ace.

it was a $1/2 game

if you really put him on a draw, why aren't you reraising him on the flop?
