Daily Debacle – Simple Suckout
I didn’t play very much yesterday so this is the worst thing that happened. $0.50 / 1.00 NL online. I am the button, P8 and P3 both limped, so I made a pot-sized raise to $5.50, hoping just to steal the blinds. P3 called, and I hit top pair on the flop. I bet 1/2 pot and he called again. Now the pot is $27 and he has $14 behind, so on the turn (hoping a 4th diamond is good for me; we later learn this to be false) I put him all-in as I’m not going to fold to any shove he might make on the river due to his short stack. As it turns out, he has a slew of outs – any diamond (8 outs), any A, K or J (another 8 outs), and hits one of them for a Broadway straight.
At the time all the chips went in, I was 63.5% favored to win. Can’t be too upset about this one.
