Sorta bad beat but thats poker right.
UTG is a loosy goosy in a big way. Player who I play with a lot. His biggest tell when he is bluffing is he actually throws his chips towards you and his bet is usually larger normal hoping to not get a call.
ME--not quite live NIT but pretty tight.
SB--calling station..plays every hand..I 4 bet shove KK earlier in the night for about $200 and he came along with Q6o
BB tight(for live poker) good player..doesnt chase much..
blinds 1/2 hand is prob half way thru our 10 hour session
UTG raises to $10(means he has 2 cards)
folds to me(66), I 3bet ISO to $40...sb and bb call.
At this point UTG honestly has any 2.
SB..I can't really range him after the Q6o call when I 4 bet AI
BB...prob the hand Im most worried about..at worse mid SC's, mid PP or paint.
flop is 345 rbw...UTG quickly throws $125 in chips towards me so I was about 90% he had squat and 10% he had 2 pair or wheel but most likely he would slow play wheel. Figure he is putting me on high Ax and he tried to pressure me off that hand.--metagame wise this is pretty normal, folks know Im a bit tight and when I raise PF will call and bomb pot when no paint hits.
As I think for a moment I see both sb and bb have cards in hand waiting to fold...at this point Im almost positive I have best hand so I come over the top for $260 AI.
sb--bb fold...UTG counts and gets chips in very fast..I thought I mis-read the whole situation. He turns over A8o
I was so shocked by his call I actually forget to burn a card when I deal...luckily everyone(including myself) noticed my mistake. I promptly thru out the next card and of course it was an A...no help on the river.(funny thing is the 8 would have been river if I continued my deal without burning a card)
Oddest thing was UTG told me he put me on a high Ax or a mid PP...which makes his call seem that much more foolish.
Home game/live poker---just nuts sometimes.
