I decided to head over to the new poker room at Charles Town (WV) this past Wednesday to check it out. I wasn't a big fan of the old room that opened in 2010 so I was curious to see what the new room was like. Turns out it's a substantial improvement (IMO) and I could see myself heading back on a more regular basis.
Anyway, there were a couple hands from that session that I wanted to post about. Nothing too exciting, but just wondering what others might have done in similar situations.
Playing a not-too-crazy 2/5 table for about an hour or two at this point in the night. A higher than normal number of multiway limped pots preflop and not a lot of large preflop reraises. The stacks at the table are somewhat low for 2/5 (in part because of the $500 max buy-in). I would say most people had $200-500, with only a couple players between $500-1000.
Hero is on the button and sitting with a stack of about $600. Four players limp in for $5/each and Hero raises to $40 with
. Folds around to the CO who calls the extra $35 and then checks in the dark. (Villain has a slightly smaller stack than Hero, around $450-500)
Action is on Hero after Mr.Check-in-the-dark's check. Hero c-bets $65. Mr.Check-in-the-dark calls the $65 and then proceeds to check in the dark again.
Once again, the action is on Hero. Hero decides to check (right or wrong, that's what he did). Mr.Check-in-the-dark makes good on his name and for the third time checks in the dark going into the river.
Action is on Hero who now has to decide what to do. Should he check or bet? And if he should bet, how much?
