Suckout King

Ok. I sit down at a 2/4 table at Titan. I am there for a couple of minutes. I raise with KK and 4 people call. I end up holding on to that one. I lose one. Then comes this hand. I have AKo. It gets raised, I make it 3, someone makes it 4, FIVE people in pre-flop on this hand. The flop is 87J. So I have overs assuming nobody hit the straight. So I am in second second to last position. It gets bet, it gets raised, I call. It gets called by ALL FIVE people. The turn is a T. So now if someone had a straight draw they just made it. I have overs still, but this makes them weaker. I also have a gutshot NUT straight draw. So I call the 2-Bets. ALL FIVE PEOPLE CALL. Now could everyone have a good hand? I doubt it. However the pot at this point in time is so large that folding would be a mistake. So I call. The river is a beautiful lady. I am golden! Runner-Runner nut straight. No flushes. No Paired board. You can not do that in NL! So the guy before me bets, I raise, and FOUR people call that final 2-BET. MAN! I hit a $75 pot five minutes into playing and almost trippled up. SWEET! The bankroll is just over 600 and I am SMOKING! Now I gotta go eat dinner with the wife.

Nice playing with you yesterday, SirF. It's always nice to play at a table with bloggers and see the respect given back and forth.

Now just for argument sake, how pissed off would you be (and imagine your writeup) if someone cold called all the way down to catch runner-runner against something like a flopped set with two overcards?

I think that post would make his head and bankroll explode Al.

Fold after that flop. You will lose money in the long run with this kind of post flop play.

Pre-flop is fine, but that's the easy part of poker.

Donkeys always draw.

Kidding, SirF... nice to have it go your way occasionally, no?
