PokerStars Home Game #73208603219: {Showcase: Pokerkaki Club} Tournament #491907096, $5.00+$0.50 USD Hold'em No Limit - Level I (15/30) - 2012/01/03 21:31:24 CCT [2012/01/03 8:31:24 ET]
Table '491907096 3' 9-max Seat #4 is the button
Seat 1: pipi486 (1545 in chips)
Seat 3: Normaniter (1530 in chips)
Seat 4: Stussyboi (1455 in chips)
Seat 5: Mr.Hirobow (1470 in chips) is sitting out
Seat 6: jacksms88 (1500 in chips)
Seat 7: ikelos (1500 in chips)
Seat 8: eleester (1500 in chips)
Seat 9: LeoKezoJr (1500 in chips)
Mr.Hirobow: posts small blind 15
jacksms88: posts big blind 30
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to pipi486 [Qs Ad] (3rd hand in tournament, AQ is decent 1st hand to play)
ikelos: folds
eleester: raises 45 to 75 (decent raise from EP, no read on villian)
LeoKezoJr: folds
pipi486: calls 75 (might raise if he was loose, a call against unknown looks fine since I have position)
Normaniter: calls 75 (looks like a value call, could be pair, high cards or suited connector)
Stussyboi: folds
Mr.Hirobow: folds
jacksms88: calls 45 (BB calls due to pot odds)
*** FLOP *** [Jd 9h Ts] (decent flop texture for me, giving me a straight draw and over card draw)
jacksms88: checks
eleester: bets 157 (aggressor leads with 1/2 pot bet)
pipi486: calls 157 ( a raise here will be bad since there are 2 more players to act after me, I do a conservative call for straight draw value. will fold if face with a solid raise)
Normaniter: calls 157 ( a call here is wide, could be a draw or a pair... pretty sure not a set, a set will usually raise here)
jacksms88: folds (BB misses)
*** TURN *** [Jd 9h Ts] [Ac] (top pair for me, decent.. but fearing AJ,A9,AT)
eleester: checks (his check makes me comfortable that he is not AK)
pipi486: bets 393 (half pot bet with top pair good kicker, I wanna chase drawers away)
Normaniter: calls 393 (my read was like he is on a draw, 2 passive calls... if he has 2 pair, a raise here is almost a must... to much card on the river can make a straight to spoil his 2 pair)
eleester: folds
*** RIVER *** [Jd 9h Ts Ac] [4h]
pipi486: checks (check to keep pot and try draw out a bet from a busted draw)
Normaniter: bets 480
pipi486: calls 480 (instant call)
*** SHOW DOWN ***
Normaniter: shows [Js As] (two pair, Aces and Jacks)
pipi486: mucks hand (bad read... paid his 2 pair off.)
Normaniter collected 2532 from pot
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 2532 | Rake 0
Board [Jd 9h Ts Ac 4h]
Seat 1: pipi486 mucked [Qs Ad]
Seat 3: Normaniter showed [Js As] and won (2532) with two pair, Aces and Jacks
Seat 4: Stussyboi (button) folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 5: Mr.Hirobow (small blind) folded before Flop
Seat 6: jacksms88 (big blind) folded on the Flop
Seat 7: ikelos folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 8: eleester folded on the Turn
Seat 9: LeoKezoJr folded before Flop (didn't bet)

Looks fine to me, you would have paid him off even if you had AK so :roll:

Did you consider checking the turn?

good question...turn ah.. never thought of checking leh
think if I checked, villian will bet and I passive call out of position.. looks quite bad too

Another play is aggressive flop 2.5x raise hahahaha

If you check/called the turn, check the river, you could possibly see if villian will bet the river - if he does bet the river then I think you can most probably put him on 2 pair or better and folding your AQ would be easier?

If he doesnt bet the river, then AQ is good enough for a showdown :)

think the line u took was fine. Maybe 3-bet preflop but since u flatted pre, lead out turn and c/c river is what ive done also.

check/fold river dont see what norbert is calling turn with something that you beat. Turn is a bet HU vs preflop aggressor but since norbert called flop as well u should check it.
