$2/$5 game $1000 cap
Effective stack is mine at $850
MP LAG player raises to $25, 2 players call and I am in CO with 8♣ 6♣ I call , BTN calls and so does SB.
So 6 ways to flop.
Pot is $155
flop is 9♣ 7♣ 5♠
SB checks and original raiser bets $100
next 2 players fold.
original raiser started hand with just a little more than me ($900)
So do i call here or raise?
Bart talks about playing his big hands fast so i decided to raise to $325, which leaves me $500 behind.
SB, who has about $1800, thinks for probably a good minute or so and ends up folding and then the bet'r thinks for about 15 seconds and shakes his head and throws his hand into muck.
Should i have raised?
Should i have maybe only raised to $250
I felt i needed to raise because there could be some cards that could kill any further action for me like - any 8 or 6, another club. Was thinking the raiser had an over pair and might be willing to get it in thinking that i might have a pair and gutter straight draw or flush draw or open ended straight draw.
how wrong did i play this? Did i leave money out there?
Or was it the right play?
