Here's another interesting hand from my 3/5 NL game tonight.
It's my last hand of the night. I'm comfortably up (a nice change). UTG, I limp with A-3 off-suit. 5 callers is typical for this game and it doesn't disappoint. BB checks and we see a flop:
Sweet. I check my trips. It checks all the way around to the BB who bets $20. I call. Everyone else folds.
First off, let me tell you about BB. He's a better than average player. I watched him extract maximum value on a previous hand against another decent player. He's tight and aggressive. (Edit: He checks here) I bet $30 into this pot of $70. BB now check-raises to $90. We each have about $600 behind. What do you do? Before you answer, what do you put him on?
I elect to call. Before you call me out, I know this is a bad move. At this point, it's push or fold.
Now the board is paired and there is a spade flush out there. I check.
BB now bets $250. What do you do?
