Nice pot! I have been slow playing too much in the past when i flop a big hand. Now i adhere to the addage that in order to win a big pot you have to build one. In addition on this hand i'm leading into the pre-flop raiser with what could seen as a week bet but it also gives the wrong price to any flush draws out there.

With a min re-raise and a call from the utg+1 the pot is big enough that i just push. the only thing i'm worried about is the flush draw if anyone decides to chase, but of course i have outs to the boat.

On the face of it this seems like ur garden variety suckout... guy makes two pair on the river. but i think i made two mistakes on the hand. maybe one.

  1. At first i was thinking i should've reraised the turn, however at the time i was concerned about JT, which is a hand that people like to play, so maybe the call was ok. also i dont think that this guy would have laid his pair and gutshot any way... fish!
  2. My biggest mistake, and something i have to seriously work on, is the call on the river. all i have is TP, the board is coordinated and Opp is betting into me... fold and save the extra money.
  4. hmm... Just noticed this... Probably shouldve pot it or bet at least 2/3rd of the pot on the flop.... sigh poorly played on all streets!

Todays Results:
462 hands @ 18ptbb/100 -- 12/5

Made some poor plays like the one above but overall played well. Only got a chance to play one 2hr session today. would like to get in one in the moring and one in the afternoon before i have to get ready for work, about 1k hands total.
