A long time ago, I entered a deep stack tournament in Vegas where I started with $10,000. (The photo is this crazy woman who kept flirting at me while I was playing poker at The Venetian. It may explain my poor play below...lol)
For the first round or 30 minutes, I did not get a playable hand. I was getting a little impatient, when this hand came up.
Blinds are $100-$200 with a $25 ante.
I am in the cutoff.
Everyone folds to me. I have 6d-4h offsuit. A big hand! I raise to $650.
The big blind calls. Such respect.
The pot is $1,625.
The flop is Kc-8h-4d.
My opponent checks. I check without thinking. I mean, I was just trying to steal the blinds. However, after I checked, I wished I had bet. Oh well...
The turn is a 2s.
My opponent bets $1,500. Did that 2s really help him? Or did he hit his King on the flop? Or is he just bluffing.
This time I think about the hand. My read is that he is trying to steal. But, it is going to cost me some chips. Oh well, sounds crazy but I called.
There is $4,625 in the pot.
The river is a 7d.
My opponent bets $1,500 again.
What should I do?
