I was the dealer and here is my Hand:
$20 big blind. I raised $50 Pre-Flop. One or two opponents called.FLOP:
One opponent, Mr B, raised to $400. Then I raised my bet to $1400. At this point, my guess was that
1) I still have the higher hand, 2) he has two clubs, expecting to make a flush.
Obviously, my $1000 raise was to drive him off the game. However, he called by matching up by extra $1000.TURN:
My opponent called for All-in: $2100.Then I was quite sure that his hand could also make a pair, either with the 8 or 9 out there. I did not think it was a straight at that point, quite sure he was still waiting for the flush. Girls' instinct.
I still had the highest hand at that point without the river. So, if he would not have made the flush or getting the 8 or 9 (3-of-a-kind), I would have won this hand. Therefore, I called for $2100, which makes a lot of sense to me because I bet $3500 for another $3600 with well over 50% of chance of winning.
DAMN IT! HE MADE THE FLUSH!!!!
Eventually his hand was:
So my guess was absolutely correct. His actual outs that could beat me were:
1) any clubs to make a flush(7 cards, because I have one club myself.)
2) all 6 or J to make a straight (6 cards, two already counted in Clubs)
3) any 9 to make a 3-of-a kind (2 cards)
Total: 15 cards
All other 29 cards would have made me the winner, but I lost $3550 in this one hand.
Folks, did I play it right?
