Re: My Epic Fail of a hand in WSOP 1.5k Early
PokerZombie when you checked the turn you did it because you thought you were behind? Did the J make you concerned at all?
Question to all what hands do they have when they call the 3/4 pot bet at flop when the preflop raiser that cbets has only 10bb left afterwards and just used 6bb resulting if they call to 8+6*3=26bb pot. Hasnt hero played here exactly like 99-AA so far? So tell me indeed what hands call this? Are we playing with real bad players here?
PokerZombie what were the exact positions in this hand?
I think at 18bb 99 is also open shove preflop if your image is slightly perceived tilted which may make some 77-99,AK,AQ to call you happily in addition to more standard TT-AA,AK or JJ-AA,AKs depending on their positions.
I also like open limp then push any raise and exploit any dead chips called or get a cheap flop multiway or raise to 2.50-3bb to avoid multiple callers and big pot bet requirement by us post flop in the blind out of position vs many. 2.15bb gives all these people the chance to outflop 99 cheaply. You pay them but they less often pay you. 99 doesnt like more than 1 callers in general given that the flop you got is already the minority of cases. You have just ~30% chance to get a flop that either gives you a set+ or no overcard. That said of course one overcard eg T,J is not necessarily a problem even Q,K but it makes things tough so you do not want many on the flop. Hence the limp or raise 3 i think. Limp and then push looks like monster too which may make some hands that raised to fold too.
