Playing 1/2 NL at local casino and have about $600
I have raised about five hands in a row not because I was crazy just got that many good hands. There are 4-5 limpers and look down at KsQs in cut off. I raise to $15 preflop and get 4 callers.
Checks to me and I bet $40
Turn is a blank something like 5 diamonds
Now the villain leads out and bets $60 and has about $175 left. I was pretty sure he just had the "As" and was just making this move hoping I had nothing and would just go away. I opted to play it safe and just called looking for another blank on the river. Of course the river is another spade and he thinks it over for half a minute and goes all in. I got the dam Ks and Qs in my hand and Js on the board (no high spades left other than As). No way this tight player makes the call on the flop without the "As" and very doubtful he has set. Seemed to me like a player who would not make this kind of all in bet without the nuts so I insta muck.
He shows the "As" not sure what the other card was. I guess he could have flopped the nuts but I just seen these leads like this so many times and usually they are with a pretty week hands.
Really kicking myself for not going all in on the turn but I was pretty sure he only had the As and I should have just manned up and put him to the test even if a slight chance he had flopped the nuts.
