I think I made a bad play on the .50/$1 NL cash tables early this morning and would like some feedback.
I have 5,5 in early position. I limp in. A player with a full stack ($100) completes and the big blind, who has $65, checks.
The flop comes 3,4,5 rainbow.
It's a fairly scary flop, but I am prepared to bet it.
The small blind bets $5, $2 over the pot. The big blind raises to $15.
I have top set. I decide to call. I would like to see what he does on the turn and I would also like to see what the small blind does. He just calls.
This table, like all the others this morning, have been really tight. It's hard these days to get paid off on the weekdays, but that's another issue.
The turn is a 10 of clubs. That puts two clubs on the board. The small blind checks. I put him on a small overpair, maybe 7-7 or 6-6 would make sense as well. I'm pretty sure I have him beat.
The big blind bets nearly the pot, $40.
What do you do here? I'll tell you what I did later, as well as my (probably flawed) thoughts on the hand.
Let's hope I don't face a situation like this one at the Rakebrain blogger challenge on Full Tilt. LeCheese has been replaced by LeTune, but I'm more worried about the slew of bloggers I'll face in this Thursday at 7 p.m. (mountain time).
Prize pool will be $1000 and the game is Pot Limit HA as usual.
I also know he was looking to fill a couple spots so if you're interested you might leave a comment in the blog session.
