One quick "woe unto me" post...

Still playing well....  Any reason to call this river?

Full Tilt Poker $0.50/$1 No Limit Hold'em - 7 players
The Official Hand History Converter

CO: $138.60
BTN: $41.10
SB: $20.20
BB: $32.00
UTG: $65.55
UTG+1: $225.05 - My note on this guy from PTR is that he's a HUGE loser!  He's tight as anything, but can never lay down.  He's a 10/7/2.8%3bet who rarely steals...
Hero (MP): $160.40

Pre Flop: ($1.50) Hero is MP with 4h 4s
1 fold, UTG+1 raises to $3, Hero calls $3, 4 folds

Flop: ($7.50) 6s 4c Jd (2 players)
UTG+1 bets $5.50, Hero calls $5.50
Sweet... bring me the moneys!

Turn: ($18.50) Js (2 players)
UTG+1 bets $13, Hero calls $13
This is SUCH a bad card because I don't want to raise and make it look like I hit trips.  I plan to make a play on the river because I know he's not going to lay down.  Just keep betting, baby!

River: ($44.50) Jh (2 players)
UTG+1 bets $26.50, Hero folds
Ouch.  Fail.  Oh dear...

Final Pot: $44.50
UTG+1 wins $42.30
(Rake: $2.20)


  1. the 1-out counterfeit. Didn't see that coming, did ya?

  2. Sometimes I call there.

    Not because I think I have the best hand but because I want to make sure they see how lucky they got on the river.

    If there was an open muck option I could save a lot of money :)

  3. I guess I could say he hit a "3 outter." [Face palm.]

    LOL MicroRoller. Folding face up would be awesome!

  4. If he never folds his premium tight range, why aren't we raising the flop?

  5. Good question. I definitely should have been raising here. To get 150+BBs in by the river, I need to kick in a raise.
