I finally cashed in a bigger poker tournament (MSPT) however I just above min cashed and would like people’s opinion on the 2 hands that got me knocked out.
Stack : $130,000 – Blinds 2500, 5000 Ante 1000.
EP raises to 15000, I call w 55, BB calls. Pot is 62,500. Flop is 7 4 2 rainbow. It gets checked to me and I bet 30,000. Old guy in BB tanks and goes all in (Has me covered). I fold. Guy who was intial raiser tanked and folded and claimed he had 10 10. Huh? Did I make a good fold? Why did he not bet? Should I have bet the flop? Seems like I should’ve. Weird hand to me.
Hand that knocked me out:
Stack : $55,000 – Blinds 2500, 5000 Ante 1000.
Folded to button who limps, I’m in SB with 10s6h. I complete. BB checks. Pot is 25,000. I have $50,000 now. Flop is 7c 4c 2h. I bet $30,000. BB tank calls. Button folds. Turn is 8c. Chk Chk. River is 9h giving me the straight. I check and villain goes all in. I call and he showed Kc3c for the flush. I feel I should’ve completed in SB. Main thing is I wish I had just gone all in on the flop. I asked the villina if I went all in on the flop if he would’ve folded and he said he didn’t know. I want him out only because it’s a tournament and I’m 3 tables from serious money vs a min cash. Thoughts?
