Just wanting some advice on how I could of played the hand differently?
I understand in regards I should of raised pre-flop but considering my chip stack I wanted to attempt to gain as much profit from this hand as possible without players folding.

Lucikly he was just bluffing with 72o funnily enough!

But also to add I'd been studying this guy since the start of the tournament and I knew he was extremely aggressive and alot of times he'd play with weak hands so I took that into consideration when the 3 clubs came on the flop.

Never open-limp, unless you are guaranteed you'll draw a raise. If a hand isn't worth an open-raise, why are you playing it?

Good decisions!

Hi Loveyy,

Way way way too passive here man.

I prefer raising pre since we are in a stealing position a maniac could still try and bluff us.

Once you get the desired raise you're letting him off the hook again by flat calling. What happens in the scenario we don't hit the K and he c-bets?

On the flop we definately need to bet since any club on the turn will make us very unhappy, either beating our hand or killing our action.

On the turn we just gotta get in it, pot is too big.

Turn up the aggression dial to 10


Quad Bracelet Winner
