I love this value bet. I probably could have gotten stacks in here, but was afraid with the check through that it would seem too suspicious...

CO mucks Kd Kh
Hero wins $75.75
(Rake: $3.00)


  1. The villain did well to check the turn.

  2. Yeah. Absolutely. Had he bet the turn, stacks would have been in on the river. As is, I got about 3/4 stacks. I don't know if I played this poorly though. Should I have raised the flop & led the turn? I've been finding that players are VERY weak / tight on Rush.
