Merge Network $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em - 5 Players
Hero (BTN): $10.48
Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with 5 5
UTG calls $0.10, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.50, 1 fold, BB calls $0.40, 1 fold.
With the stack sizes, if the BB 3-bets pretty much anything -- except a min-three-bet -- I have to fold. I don't have the odds to continue with just a small pair. I don't really care if he calls. If we both miss, I'm in a position to pick it up on the flop.
Flop: ($1.15) T 5 2 (2 players)
BB bets $1.15, Hero calls $1.15
Turn: ($3.45) T 5 2 2 (2 players)
BB bets $6.19 (all-in), Hero calls $6.19
Can you say fist-pump and insta-call?
River: ($15.83) T 5 2 2 4 (2 players)
BB shows: Q Q (Queens and Twos)
Hero shows: 5 5 (Fives Full of Twos)
Hero wins $15.04 (Rake: $0.79)
I know this hand is pretty standard (except for how badly the BB midplayed his hand). But I was happy with it. As an aside, I don't know what he thinks the over-bet on the turn is going to accomplish. What possible draws could he bet me off? 3-4? Would I really have an open-ended straight there. If I have A-T, K-T, or some other weird T-x hand... wouldn't he want me to stick around and bet closer to the amount of the pot?
I can't think of a single "worse" hand that ever calls that over-bet shove. But I can certainly think of many that call it (trips and better).
