Bit late in response this week, sorry about that.
in my hand on a very tight table I decided I wanted some action and minimum raised from early position. Under most situations minimum raising is a bad idea, but my gut told me to do it, and I usually trust my gut.
With 2 callers and a flop of
, there are immediately a vast ammount of hands that can either beat me, or will call 2/3 pot raises on big draws. Think K-Q, J-10, 9-9, as the 3 hands that either of the 2 callers could easily have that beat me. Then hands that are behind, but have big drawing capabilities, A-J, A-10, with 2 clubs. K-J, K-10, Q-J, Q-10 a pair and a gutshot. And any hand with 2 clubs.
Quite often with flops that have lots of draws I will check a big hand. Many times someone with a good drawing hand will, check-raise all in, putting me in a tough spot.
hits the turn I\'m feeling pretty confident that my A-A is best and may have raised the BB after he lead out with 800, but I decide to call.
is a meaningless card with regards to possible draws. And I lead out with a value bet of 1200. And rake in a pot of 7650 chips.
BB turns over
So in most situations minimum raising is advised against, but in this case I probably got close to the maximum value out of my hand which is always the goal.
Oh and sorry about changing the 2 last week, I had some people confused, lol. Just made an initial mistake in my post.
