Image via WikipediaLimit Poker: $15-$30 Cash Game--A Very Interesting Hand
I got knocked out of the Oaks $120 buy-in tournament today when a player beat my pocket Aces. He moved all-in on the flop with his flush draw. I called. He hit his flush on the turn. Oh well.
Since I was out early, I decided to try the $15-$30 cash limit game.
Here is the Very Interesting Hand
Everyone is playing rather loose. I get dealt 9-9 on the cut-off.
5 players call. I call since no one is going to fold for one bet. The button raises. Everyone calls.
There are 7 players in the hand.
The flop is 5s-7d-9d.
The big blind bets into the raiser and the big field. I call. The button raises. The big blind calls. I call. Everyone else folded. Three of us take the turn.
The turn is a 2c.
The big blind checks. I check. The button bets. The big blind now check-raises. I call. The button calls.
The river is a Jd, potentially giving someone a flush.
The big blind checks. I bet right away. Why? I am sure no one has a flush. My bet will make it look like I have a flush. And, if the big blind has a straight he may fold since he is an "observant" player.
The button calls. The big blind is not happy. He takes a while to make a decision. He folds.
I show the set of 9's. The button shows a set of 7's.
The big blind had the 6-8, which gave him a flopped straight. He folded since he was sure I could only be in the hand with a flush draw.
A big win for me!
For the entire session of limit cash, I ended +$800.
