So, in this hand, looking back, I haven’t got a clue what I was doing! Ha, I open from the cutoff with JTo (no spades) to $5 and am called by the button. The flop comes (J 6 Q) two spades and I check-call $9. The turn comes the 2s completing a flush draw and I fire $21.10 into $31 which he calls. At this point I think he either has a Queen and doesn’t believe, or maybe has the Queen or the Jack with the Ace of spades, maybe a made flush, or maybe a set of 6′s. Anyway, I think I’m definately beat. The river is a Jack giving me trips but something tells me I don’t like it, I check and he bets $60 into $73.20. I pretty much insta-fold. I took such a strange line, when I check to him on the flop he can bet anything there so I guess I was thinking I’ve let you fire, now on the turn I’m going to represent the flush and you can’t call… but he did, so that took away all of the 88 or 67 type hands and again especially when he bets the river as a Queen etc. can check to showdown against my possible bluff. Anyhow, I bet he had no idea what I had but I still think I made a solid fold.
