Hand #4186685-6513 Summary:
$.30 is raked from a pot of $6.50.
jimiworm76 wins $6.20 with flush, jack high.
Basically I was thinking that if he had the flush I was probably beat, but given the fact that he'd need two clubs, and I knew were 5 of the 13 were, I figured the odds of him having them were slim - with a board of 6,7,8,9 I thought a straight was more likely. When he re-raised to cap it I figured I was dead, but I was getting 12-1 pot odds and couldn't seen folding there just in case he WOULD cap with a straight.
Should I have just called his raise and let it go at 2 bets?
Why couldn't that damn 7 have been the 7c and given the straight flush? That would have been my best hand of all time.
BTW - what's that hand converter everyone is using? I don't have that link.

simple check call on the river, you are either beat or he will not call your bet.
good example of when only a better hand will call, y
ou are willing to put in 1 more bet but he is only going to call or raise you with a hand that can beat you. instead use that 1 extra bet to call with, this way you will induce him to bluff when he doesn't have you beat (winning a bet that betting out doesn't get you) and you only lose 1 bet instead of 2 or more when you are beat.

exactly! he calls or raises when he has you beat and folds if he doesn't. Do you think he will call with a pair with that board?

I'm sorry i didn't see it was a flush on the river I thought you both had straights.
A main reason I hate when people post hand histories, instead of typing out a summary.

Ignore what i said above, however if it wasn't a club on the river my advice was spot on!!! lol

I thought you were going nuts steve-o.
This is a tough one Gir. People are so flush shy, it may have been better to just call the raise.
Gir went on a tear after this and won 3 8BB pots in a row.
The only pot I won all night was a bluff from the BB with 74o.

I guess I just got caught up in the "what are the odds he has two of the 8 clubs left in the deck?" thinking.

Yeah - when he capped I was pretty sure I was beat, but I had 12-1 odds. I had to take the shot just in case he would cap with the top straight.
