Dear All,
long time no see?
anyway I now play a weekly live game here in Jamaica and had this hand come up, now remember it is JA$113 to US$1.00 exchange rate , note this when I am talking bets etc.

Also the game is very well done ... two decks of cards, BB shuffles who passes deck to SB, who passes deck to button to cut then SB deals- so their is no hold up in play. Your buy-Ins are in $5000 stacks each , most players start with 1-2 stacks.....limit of 8 stacks, if you lose 8 stacks you leave or stay and watch, keeps it fun but not stupid money.

so without further ado,

blinds are $200/$100 and a player raises to $700 UTG, folds around to a decent player in the CO who calls , I am in one of the blinds with 7 Diamonds 5 Diamonds and call.

Flop comes K Diamonds, 9 Diamonds, 2 Diamonds

Original raiser bets a continuation $1500 into about $2500 pot, decent  player raises to $3000

the issue is this, I have been doing quite well up to this point and my stack is about $17,000 and he has me covered, I am not concerned with original raiser .

I am fairly confident I am winning at the moment and that he has Ad with K kicker or maybe even Qd with a K .... (If he flopped flush also he is just calling),  I also know that he is gonna shove the turn regardless of what it is.

What do I do here?

I would be thinking, what am i ahead of here that doesn't have  outs

I'm not sure that's the right question.  I am sure most non-regs don't look at it that way.

What happens to our win rate if we are magically able to fold every time someone has a big draw against us?  What if we were magically able to fold QQ PF to AK?  I.e. do we level ourselves that way?

I think the solution is rather that we refuse to eliminate our implied odds, refuse to force our opponents to play well.  I think the problem is the 3-bet.

I would be thinking, what am i ahead of here that doesnt have  outs , when the guy shoves, only JT? ....I figured it was an easy fold TBH

AJ, 2 x Hearts's, JJ, TT even AK/AQ has redraws and of course KQ

anyway, I was the opponent in this and I had KQs and MHIG and the guy called me

Regards David

My first thought is does the guy have timing tells.  Second thought is pot odds; there's almost 6 in there and it's over 8.75 to call, so you're getting less than 2:1.

You're way ahead of JT and you've got an edge on every draw.  I think I would lean toward folding; fold 2/3.  I don't think I would be willing to fold more often than that.

I think the raise to $2.50 is weak, because it tends to put you in this spot.  Much easier to smooth his raise.

Pics or it didn't happen... Hrrrrrmm.... I don't have any of that night specifically... but...

Well here is one of us at the Beach

And here is one of her after a ride at Wild Waves got her soaked and she happened to be wearing a white T-Shirt.

And then there is this one of her eating cherries that I thought I did a pretty good job of taking...

Sorry they are so big... I didn't feel like screen capturing and re sizing everything.

I'm depressed I missed this post when you made it Mellow.  That was a great and fun trip report!  Also, pics or it didn't happen.

I think people who are successful at live are good at mixing friendship and poker.  A demoralizing losing streak can be better managed if you enjoy the other interactions with the people at the table.

I think this may be a big part of the reason that Hellmuth Jr. gets so much grief, because there's something in his personality that doesn't accept or absorb that facet, that the friendships and the comraderie are necessary for the game.

In other words, people don't mind losing if they're losing to their friends.

I was going for check/raise on turn. Didnt realy notice his pot size bet Sad
I do the same thing sometimes when I play simulations.  Maybe you can set the software to give a warning (a bet size warning).

Against an unknown player, I usually assume I'm beat.  This is why H'E sucks so much, is so wicked, because good +EV hands don't come around all that often and then they're so fragile when they do.

On a dry flop like this, you're WAWB, so there isn't actually any reason to check raise.  Especially on the turn.  IMO, anyways.
