An actual hand history. I’m pretty sure you won’t see this one on other blogs.
It’s 15/30 and an extremely loose table. 5 and 6 way action is the norm. The pattern is an early raise and multiple callers.
UTG, you look down at As-Jc. Not a great hand, so I can certainly understand the argument to throw this away, especially at this table. Figuring it’s the best hand, you raise to $30.
But wait! You totally forgot that this is a kill-pot. This next hand is 30/60, so all you did was call. Moron.
Now the table kicks into high gear. You get re-raised by a tight player and capped by the loosest player at the table. 3 more callers (all calling $240 cold!), and it gets back to you. You have to call three more bets here to see a flop ($180).
What do you do?
Follow up. The flop is 4c-4s-5c. What do you do now?
