I'm wondering whether I made a mistake here? Hindsight is a funny thing...

Perhaps I should have put a stopper bet on the turn? I was just worried that seat 7 would ship his A as his stack was too short in comparison to the pot. Any thought here guys?

Hi Fayden, can you tell me where said appropriate forum is?


Nevermind, looks like it's here now (can I still be a forum newbie with 171 posts?)

Hi massive_set

I like your 3bet sizing I think it's spot on.
Awkward spot post flop especially as we don't even have the Kc. With both villains having a little under a pot sized bet left I'm going to play it the same way you did. It's extremely likely that at least one of these guys has the A ( not forgetting player 1 ).

It's also important to remember that if we do bet that we are betting into a dead side pot which we could be drawing dead against.

Situations like this don't tend to happen very often and I'm happy with the way you played the hand.

I would be interested to hear what everybody else would do in this spot but I would play it exactly how you did.

Cheers, Chris.
