650 Effective Stacks, 2/5 NL. I am the small blind and I have A J off suit. I get 3 limpers and the button makes it 15. I make it 45 to his left. The big blind calls the 45, limpers fold and the 15 dollar raiser calls.
The big blind has been drinking heavily and is spewy especially preflop. The button was raising it up with mediocre hands several times.
Pot is 150 and the flop comes J 9 7 with two hearts. I lead for 115 and they both call. Pot is now 495. The turn is a blank 6 and I have 460 dollars left. I think for a little bit and end up deciding to shove all in 460 into 495 on turn.
The drunk big blind folds and the initial preflop raiser button is in agony and tanks (he has exactly 450 left). He is adding up the pot and is like i'm getting the odds to call. I then know he has a draw. Its 450 for him to call and win 955. HE is getting like 2.2-1. He only has to be right about 31% of time.
In the end the guy open folds Q 10 of hearts for an open ended straight with a flush draw. I can see by doing the math he has the equity to call and his queen is live also. I was glad I got him to fold.
What are your thoughts on the hand? If you are the button are you ever passing up this slight edge knowing you have the equity to call, or to rather get your money in at a better spot? Do you think I overplayed my AJ off suit hand? By the way I had the ace of hearts so that is one of his outs....
