Thank you all for your replies; I do appreciate them.

After weighing everything up, taking into account the bets that he made and going with my gut, I decided to call.  I figured if I lost the hand, it would cost me 28c (700 x 4c per 100 chips) but if I win, it would be worth 56c (1400 x 4c per 100)

I knew I probably should have folded but you know when you get that feeling, you just can't throw that pot away.

Here is the outcome:



As you can see, he was chasing the flush, which he didn't make and was just doing a very expensive continuation bet.

The end result was that I was 1st of the 5 winners and won $3.72.

This is an interesting hand at PokerStars.  Everyone limped in as you can see from the pot in the middle.  I didn't raise although I probably should have but my thinking at the time was that these are fish and I'd seen them getting lucky time after time.

The other two opponents have thrown their chips in the pot and it's me to act.  You can see I have 2 overcards plus a spade for a runner runner flush.

Question is what would you do?

I would fold.  Looks like you are playing with two fish in this hand and they caught something.  Why would 2 people go all in on these cards unless they shouldn't have played their two cards in the first place?

I would so want to go all-in with that flop and knowing they are fish... but, I would not risk my whole stack in such an iffy situation... if one or both have a matching pair you're facing 3 of a kind or if one can fill the straight you could be out in the blink of an eye... so, I would fold.

I forgot about the fact that each could have a pocket pair.  Duh!!!  But then wouldn't one or both have raised before the flop?

I still would fold. 

Can't wait to see what they had.

Now medtrans that is something I didn't consider... a pre-flop raise with a pair in the hole... hmmm... If they did have a pair in the hole, they would be smallish pairs and perhaps would just call to test the waters... can't wait to find out "the rest of the story!"

Thank you ladies for your great comments.

I did actually fold.  I missed the flop totally and considered one or both had got lucky with top pair or a straight draw.

Here is part "deux"

I'll give you the final card in a moment.

OMG blue! How can anyone think they should call an all-in bet with a 27 off? It is quite bad enough the first guy went in with that 89 off at least there is the tiniest chance of a straight, but probably just trying to take the blinds... but the second guy? Jeeeezzzz...

Ahhh...the frustration of poker.  Unbelievable.  Must have been a cheap tourney.  People just don't do this kind of stuff for "real" money.

They both suck. 72 off - shouldn't even be in the game and 89 off is way out of position for a call with rubbish like that.  I doubt they would have folded if I had raised.

So with all their rubbishy calls, here is the final outcome.  



The open ended straight wins against trip 7s.  Neither of them should have been in the hand and when it comes to players like these 2 jokers, it's best to just limp in if you can, cos no matter what you bet, they were always going to call.

I hear you.  That is so wrong and happens to me all the time because I only play free or cheap tourneys.  Neither should have been in the hand from the get go.

They should both be shot at dawn! They do shoot people for being totally ignorant don't they? No? Ok, well then they should be keel-hauled! That is probably the one most frustrating thing about poker... people like that and the fact that they actually fill these wild hands and win...

Yes katt.  Frustration, frustration, frustration.  That's how it is when playing cheap poker.  And has always been my big complaint.  But I keep on trudging on...hoping to outsmart them.  But it is hard, especially when I get so frustrated that I play just like them.  LOL LOL  But most times I am not as lucky as they are.
