What Would You Do? [Introduction]

Postby suitedpairs29 » Wed Aug 15, 2007 10:14 am

Every situation in poker is unique in that a hand can be played in a million ways and yield a different result everytime. I think we all have looked back at a hand wherein you flopped the stone cold nuts and small bet all the way hoping to get some payoff, only to find out that your opponent flopped a monster draw and got there on the turn and would have called an all in on the river. How bout trapping with your TPTK, only to find out that your opponent already had you crushed with bottom set. All the above scenarios illustrate that the beauty in poker is that you can play a hand horribly and still feel like a genius afterwards. Or play it perfectly and feel like a loser a minute later.

With the above logic in mind, lets try something fun here. Ill post a scenario that I or another fellow player has experienced and post how you would play the hand. Lets try not to be results oriented because in poker, the decision is the most important. Regardless of whether or not the cards fall in your favor, if you make the right choice, in the long run, you will succeed.

Post other suggestions for this series here, ill try to implement them as we progress.

Enjoy all!
