Hand needing analysis

Postby klas793 » Sun Apr 24, 2005 12:52 pm

I entered a £2+$0.25 buyin this morning. First hand I'm starting in middle position, everybody has 1500 chip, UTG raises to 60, everybody calls, I hold 88 so I call too, about 3-4 more people call after me.

Flop comes 4 :s 7 :h 8 :h . 400 in the pot, UTG bets 20, next person raises to 40, next person calls. I raise to 440 . One person calls.

Turn comes 5 :c and I'm all-in. Turns out other guy has 6 :h A :h .

Should it I've gone all-in on flop to avoid this?

I doubt it would matter, he had gutter+NUT flush draw+ an overcard. I think he woulda called anyways

Jdawg is right, you were screwed at that point. The only way you might have won the pot is if you went all in preflop and drove the A6 out. But he still might have called. And its hard to go all in after a raise and people calling the raise with pocket 8's, especially on the first hand of a tourney when you don't know what kind of players you are dealing with yet.

funny i run into this alot,no matter what once the flop hit its all over your not going anywhere and he is not either. just one of those things you run into playing poker. maybe at a higher limit an all in after the flop would drive out a draw but at those odds most would go. sorry to hear it win the next one.

I really don't see how you could have had a different outcome. You had to think your 8s were good, and I doubt anything you could have done would make him give up that draw.... even though you have to hate it, that's just poker...... 8)
