Effective stacks 500 2,5 game.
5 players limp into the hand. BB raises it to 25 from the BB (appears to be a grinder/reg). He gets two callers (including me from the button).
I have Qh 9h.
Flop Qs Jh 8h- A field caller makes a bet of 35, the BB calls and I call. The turn is Td. Field better checks. The pre-flop raiser makes it 75. I now have top pair, flush draw and a straight- I raise to 225. Field better folds. The pre-flop raiser thinks for 3 minutes then shoves.
I fairly confident he has AK (possibly a set-but doubtful, or even the same straight) . I already invested 285 of my 500 stack. The pot over 600. Do you make the call?
Second question-when you bluff in hand pre-flop and pickup the dead money- do you still tip the dealer? After all, you made the profit based on your play not what the dealer dealt.
