Cash Game with Flux

I played the cash game with Fluxer watching my back. I did pretty well. He is a great teacher. He made me play a hand more aggressively than I normally would. The situation was this. I had pocket 8's and call the normal 2.50 raise pre-flop trying to hit my set. Instead the flop comes 567. Ouch. Dangerous. So the initial bettor puts in a bet of 8.50. I raises $8.50 to $17. He re-raises $23.50 to $40.50. So there is sixty in the pot and I have 18 left behind. I have to call at this point even though I am only 40% to win. Instead I decide to push my entire stack. Calling is for wimps. He calls. I think min-raising might have been a mistake but the rest of the hand drew me along. The laugh I got after the hand was over and I scooped in my chips was nice.

PrinceHal: that iS TWICE
SirFWALGMan: hee haw I can buy hey with your money

PrinceHal: i knew exactly whaty ou had
SirFWALGMan: exactly?
PrinceHal: and figured youd call allin with tit
PrinceHal: you ****ing idiot
PrinceHal: yep
PrinceHal: 88
SirFWALGMan: I didnt call all in
SirFWALGMan: and I dont remember stacking you twice
SirFWALGMan: your the one who called all in

PrinceHal: you called my all in with Ak and you had KQ
PrinceHal: and sucked a three outed
PrinceHal: then you just made that terribly play
SirFWALGMan: oh yeah
SirFWALGMan: that wasnt a cash game though
PrinceHal: oh you reraised 8 more dollars on $90 pot
SirFWALGMan: and I had more outs here
PrinceHal: ****ing idiot
PrinceHal: nice play
PrinceHal: you got worked both time

SirFWALGMan: lol
SirFWALGMan: I had a zillion outs though
PrinceHal: you mean 10?
SirFWALGMan: plus this is riverstars
PrinceHal: you mean a 39% chance??
PrinceHal: is that what you mean?

PrinceHal: because i dont like to get allin with less than 40% chance to win
PrinceHal: although im sure to a donkey like you that seems like a sure thing
SirFWALGMan: ya anything over 22% is good for me
PrinceHal: you played that hand like such a ****ing donkey
PrinceHal: you could have drawn to those "zillion outs"
PrinceHal: for $8
PrinceHal: but instead you raised
PrinceHal: and let me get all the chips in
PrinceHal: ****ing fool

SirFWALGMan: you should be saying thank you
SirFWALGMan: I gave you a 60% chance to win
SirFWALGMan: man I give you a lead and you cant even bring it home

Oh well, that is why I hate them bitches!

Best line of the entire chat, Waffles:

"ya anything over 22% is good for me."

The perfect response to this tiltmonkey. Hope you took him for another $100 before the night was done with.

See you tonight at the DADI.

He actually had pocket Q's, so with the aggression I was showing, I do not know how he put me on 88. Um.. maybe he is smart?

I think it is more likely that he was pissed at me from before, came and hunted me down, played his hand hard because it was me, and I sucked out on him.

btw - does anyone think anything about the actual hand? I think it may have been a mistake raising him 8.50 more, but once I did that, with the stacks being so small on Riverstars did I have a choice?

Well calling the original raise would have been a mistake since you were getting nowhere near the odds to catch your open ended straight draw. So you pretty much have two choices at that point : you either raise or fold. If you’re gonna raise, you might as well go all-in, not hoping that he calls but hoping that he’ll walk away from this hand. A solid player should fold Queens (or kings or aces for that matter) to an all-in reraise on a 5-6-7 board. He’s either drawing slim against two pair or a set, dead to a made straight or racing against an OESD. If he calls, you’re guaranteed of seeing the next two cards (He won’t bet you out on the turn if a blank hits) and you still have outs to bust his ass.

Personally, I would have folded the 8's.

Well, that's a huge flop for 88, even though it's not the set Waffle was looking for.

In hindsight, the only thing I would have changed is just going all in after he bet $8.50 on the flop (or raising to $35).

Folding an overpair and the highest open ended straight draw on the flop is weak.
