Just for fun..can you guess the 3 opponents hands.

This is in a 40FPP satellite to MM099

I am a few places behind the bubble position but playing tighter than most - I decided to fold 88 under the gun as I was not prepared to get all in or raise 10% of my stack with so many looser players behind - given the flop and the subsequent action it was a reasonable decision.

But I was wondering why all 3 opps were getting in post-flop - so can you guess their holdings?

Let me guess but all were holding a small diamond hoping for flush. I assume that your pkt 8 would have won.

No SMALL diamonds out there, but two players do have a diamond in hand - the Kd for one player and the Td for another - so pretty good draws for them both.

a) Kd + ?

b) Td + ?

c) ?+?

One of these is CORRECT!

karsten11 is sitting on KdTh - flops the nut straight with a nut flush draw - but do they go on to win?

another clue - nobody shows down with an ace

a) Kd Th

b) Td + ?

c)

can you complete the other missing cards?

not getting any nearer

one last clue - preflop - pokerstove gives my pocket 88 a massive 72.4% equity versus the 3 opponents actual holdings

not that I would have won at showdown obviously

almost perfect answer!




btw I survived to the bubble for the $3.30 ticket - took the T-money and played the main event 1000 added satellite but failed to get in - have enjoyed my poker this weekend though.


Good luck all
