OK so you called with your in the small blind by tossing a 1000 chip into the pot without giving it much thought and the big blind checked.

15000 in the pot you are 6 handed and everyone has chips over the 120k mark except the button who has 50k.

and the flop is...............................................................................



 


How do you feel? What are you thinking?

Is this a good flop or a bad one?

Are you betting or checking?

If betting how much do you bet?

and there's the reason why i folded preflop - now your stuck in a multiway pot with a drawing hand where even if you hit there's every possibility your drawing dead.

I'm thinking a variety of things on this flop

-it could have been a lot worse
-but it's not the perfect flop I really needed
- i could get into a lot of toruble chasing a flush against a higher draw...proceed with caution
- but then again I do have a double belly buster straight flush draw
I'm against 5 opponents out of position, I can't bet because there is likely a decent K in someone's hand...he will bet for me (intending to chase away flush draws)

The flop is both good and bad

I'm checking, with a view to having a decsion to make if there is action before it gets back to me...I'm expecting someone to bet with a K and a call by flush/straight draws because of the likelihood of decent pot odds. If I bet, I'm building a pot with something extremely marginal (apart from hitting running miracle cards) and potentially committing to the hand further down the line.

Thinking a couple of steps ahead, my implied odds are enormous, but my reverse implied odds are growing

I'll wait and see.Check

For me my first reaction is 'ooooh straight flush draw!'. I'm wary that someone has perhaps limped with a king, perhaps even king 9, so I check in the hopes of someone firing out a small bet where I have the odds to call.

Thats what he meant by "double belly buster" - in other words, runner runner...

i thought a double belly buster meant there are two possible cards to give him a straight on the next card (eg if you hold J-9 on a K-10-7 flop then both the Q and the 8 give you the straight)

Fair enough.... this would be a variation on the theme Cheesy, the and the would be required, or a and a

the chance of you hitting your straight flush is about just over 400 to 1 (provided the and 10h are still live), i dont think at any point in this hand are you going to be offered those kind of pot odds, implied or otherwise.

If i were in this hand i would just check and see what happened with the rest of the table
