Strategy & Advice by Thedarkspartan Posted

I had KQ diamonds in the BB...raise to 80...folds around to the SB he calls heads up action...flop comes 6,2,8 two diamonds..SB bets 20 I raise 80 he re raises to 120 I shove for 280 with my flush draw...SB calls...he flips over 6,2 off...I show my suited draw...turn and river are blanks...he wins....was I in the wrong? I feel like vs the blind I'm good..even gto says the same thing..I've ran the cards a million times in person yet I get mixed results...anyone have any thoughts on this play...BTW we were 9 handed and big stack was 800..I feel I did the right thing and he was playing garbage with his 6,2 was I wrong for thinking I was good to go?


  1. Too many variables to know.

  2. If this is a 1/2 game or even a 2/5. - I would love to sit at a table with someone who calls $80 out of the blind with 2 and 6. But you must figure when he calls and he shoves or calls your shove that he's got a big pocket pair. You would never guess he's got such trash holding. But you should have figured you were behind post flop no matter what he had. Preflop your at 45% versus a lower pocket pair. But much lower after you miss the flop. 15% I'm guessing. not sure.

  3. On the flop SB needed to raise to 140..

  4. @Kane88 why would you put in 280 to chase a flush that's to much.u should fold when he re raised.

  5. @marioarceo exactly
