Sometimes you just can't let go

This post is in part to celebrate the fact that I have just found out how to convert hand histories, lol

Hope I am not this slow on the poker table

The Villain in this hand is a 16/9 but as I only have 76 hands on him i'm not sure what I can gauge from this. I will assume that he is not a fish though

He can beat JJ-KK, 99 but I think sometimes you just have to let go. Its unlikely that I barrel 3 streets with 99 and I would mostly 3bet QQ-KK pre. So he only beats JJ

The turn card is very interesting as it completes the flush and 56 just completed the straight. However as he holds the A of diamonds he could have moved all-in and possibly taken me off the hand as I assumed that he was not a fish. I probably call a fishes shove though on the turn

  1. Hy, do you want to put our blog in your blog list, please? We already added your blog to our blog list. Thank you so much. Bye

  2. No Worries, Done. Nice site btw

  3. hey rosh. so whyd you choose that bet size on the flop when you decided to raise? and if he ships the turn would you still call? just curious

  4. I think my sizing on the flop is too small. I should have bet closer to $10, if not more.

    It would be a crying call or a crying fold either way on the turn. If I had a larger sample on this guy, probably a fold. With the sample I had a crying call. If he was a fish then I call close to 100% of the time

  5. yeah i was kinda thinking the same thing

  6. i don't mind the bet size to much. You could go either way. If he was a fish, I def make it bigger
