    Just playing a small 5p/10p game to break in my chips, a couple of hours into play there has been a lot of rebuys, and the action if quite fast and loose, with a lot of big pots being played.

    Im SB, with 69o, 5 limpers before me, I complete, and the BB checks.

    Flop comes 78T rainbow, I bet out 55p, BB folds UTG raises to £3, MP shoves all-in for ~£14, CO shoves all in for ~£25 and it is back to me, CO has about exactly the same chips as me, UTG and MP are both quite fast loose players, who are well capable with making these plays with less than the nuts, CO is a "well respected" player capable of making moves, but generally only gets it all-in with solid hands.

    My question here is WWYD??

    With the second nuts, I am only worried about CO, as UTG has basically already chucked his cards in, and even if I lose to MP but beat CO I'm about even for the hand.

    BTW I was very happy with the chips and they looked gorgeous in the pot, here are some pics:

    A decent pre-flop raise should have folded the 9J. I know, I know...WWYD? Fold.:razz:

    I agree, someone probably has J9 and it's suited. :wink:

    Fold? You guys are crazy! I'd go all-in and then rebuy to get even more of those sweet, sweet chips on the table! :happy:

    Re: First night with new chips.

    I'm assuming it's a tourney. The addition of no "Pre-flop" raise leaves 9J on the table. I....don't like to fold, nor do I like to BUILD on a pre-flop "no-raise" mistake.

    Re: First night with new chips.

    It's a cash game. Completing with 69o seemed reasonable with the pot-odds preflop, and if you're gonna fold when you hit like that then I guess you should have just folded preflop. The most dangerous button (CO in OP) guy might have something like a set or top two. Besides, if I lose, I'll just rebuy to get more of those beautiful chips in so then everybody wins! :wink:

    Re: First night with new chips.

    I was just trying to make the point about how much more difficult it becomes when everyone limps in for free (no pre-flop). In a tourney I back off in this situation and let one of the others get knocked out. Just trying to get past the bubble and into the cash. Imagine a preflop raise, even though you may be heads up....you would have gotten rid of the 9J. Your straight is then going up against painted cards, a pair or A-kicker. I still don't like to build on mistakes!

    Re: First night with new chips.

    My question, what do you put him on (button)? If you think he has top straight then fold. If you think he has two pair or a set I would go all in, of course you are 3/1 favorite.

    That is so sick if he does have J9. I wonder what is the odd of both hit the straight on the flop?

    I will have them up soon, they are on a friends camera and he hasnt uploaded them yet, but soon they will be here.

    To answer the "pre-flop raise" scenario::

    Fold wasnt much of a situation in my opinion as I was getting 13:1 on a complete, and I didnt raise as the game was so loose a raise to £1 wouldn't have thinned the field at all.

    I was obviously over the moon with the flop but with the action in this particular hand I thought BTN could have any set or J9. My instinct told me to fold, but I was blinded by the mountain of chips in my middle, so my stack followed into the pot after much deliberation. I knew it was a mistake as soon as I called. UTG folded.

    The turn came a 9 and river came a second 8m making the board 78T98............at this point I obv knew I was dead, lol.

    MP showed T7 for 2 pair

    BTN showed J9 for a straight

    I showed 69 for the lower straight

    and UTG had folded 78 which would have been the eventual winner.

    Quite a sick hand imo.

    I guess I should learn to follow my instincts, I just couldnt pass up to chance to have sooooo many chips, :wink:.

    BTN in the hand was Sneds btw, and he proceeded to mock me, and taunt me talking about how "well the chips stacked" etc. the "b*****d.

    Luckily he "donked" away his £60 stack before the end of the night :happy:.

    Sorry I couldn't make the game this past weekend. Had plans for Saturday morning.

    But if those of you in the London area ever want to come down to central London for a game, let's get one planned. I live in the EC1V 4JQ post code near Barbican/Farringdon on the Circle Line. Plenty of parking too on weekends.

    I'll let Steven post all the pics in his own time, but just thought I'd contribute one - when I was at my peak for the evening.

    I'm sure Steven will follow up this post with how I looked when i lost it all!!

    Nevertheless:
