Those of us that regularly read Decisions Not Results will have seen this hand before, but I wanted to put it out here because I want to know what you guys think.
You are Ryan, at a .05-.10 table, on the button with AcJd. UTG min-raises to .20, UTG +1 calls, and it folds to you and you 3 bet to .85. The SB calls and the original min-raiser calls, UTG +1 folds.
The pot is now 2.85. Three players see a flop of:
Kd Qd 10d.
You started this hand with almost a full stack of 9.55, SB had 24.00, and UTG had 4.88.
SB checks, and UTG makes a stab of .10. Now it's on you. You flat call the .10, slow-playing your flopped nut straight and OESFD.
How would you play this? Would you have raised? If so, why?
Action is now back on SB, who raises to 1.00 straight. UTG now calls the 1.00 in front of you and its back on you. You now 3 bet to 5.00. Good bet? Good size?
Now action is back on SB who min-raises to 9.00. (enough to put you and UTG all in). Yikes. UTG now calls off his last 3.03 in front of you and action is back on you. It's 3.70 more to call. Do you call? Could you really fold here? Should you?
This is a really interesting hand to me because the flop is a total MONSTER for us, but it seems pretty obvious that we are behind at least one of our opponents by the time the final action gets back to us. If both players are either unknown or at least non-maniacs, can we make a case for folding here? If we have determined that we have literally only 2 outs, probably we can fold. But if our J high flush would be good, then we can't right?
Pretty hilarious, I ran the numbers against the exact hands his opponent had, and it's damn scary.
