Now ladies and gentlemen, I understand that I made a mistake here. Yes, I understand I had TP shitty kicker but I had two notes on UTG + 1
Plays Ace rag like someone Hoy would get pissed off at
Plays King Rag like Wawfuls.
So with that information I went into this hand. As a reminder I am trying different things at different levels in an effort to make my 1 to 1000 Challenge come true.
Full Tilt Poker $0.01/$0.02 Pot Limit Hold’em – 7 players – View hand 738115
Hero (CO): $1.04
Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is CO with Q K
1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.02, MP calls $0.02,
Hero says “nh”,
Now I would normally fold or raise here but I’ve been so aggressive in the previous hands that I wanted to see what happened when didn’t pop it up. Probably a mistake.
Hero calls $0.02, BTN raises to $0.04, 2 folds, UTG+1 calls $0.02, MP calls $0.02,
So .02 to win .19 sounds like good pot odds to me.
Hero calls $0.02
Flop: ($0.19) 2 K 5 (4 players)
UGH, a backdoor flush draw with TP 3rd kicker. I will call any pot sized raise to see where he is at.
UTG+1 bets $0.19, MP folds, Hero calls $0.19, BTN folds
Surprise, Surprise, Surprise he pot raised it. 2-1 odds are crappy But I really believe he has A rag or King 7
Turn: ($0.57) 7 (2 players)
Now I have a flush draw.
UTG+1 bets $0.28,
I’m surprised by the 1/2 pot raise. He either has lucked into two pair or I’m ahead. Does he have AK? He would have tried to trap here if he had AK. So I am “ALL YOU CAN EAT BABY!”.
Hero raises to $0.81 all in, UTG+1 calls $0.53
Now the replayer says he called. The better term is SNAP CALL. I look at the hands and go “Well hell”.
But after the RNG has hosed me so many times during the BBT5 it redeems itself here.
River: ($2.19) 7 (2 players – 1 is all in)
OHHHHHH NOOOOOO COUNTERFEITED!
Final Pot: $2.19
UTG+1 shows 5 K (two pair, Kings and Sevens)
Hero shows Q K (two pair, Kings and Sevens)
Hero wins $2.05
Overview : I was right on my read that he was playing King Rag, but wrong that he didn’t have two pair by the flop.
$2 closer to $1000.
