I've been working quite diligently at bet/folding more and more and being confident enough in my game to do that. In the following hand, I can't get past the feeling that I should have check/folded and think I might have just thrown money out of the window.
2/5 game. I have a stack of 860. The table is rather deep, but not one specific villain here.
I'm in the bb with 34hh. Limped around to me and I check. 8 (!) players see the flop.
Flop comes 567 with 2 spades. sb limps and I bet 40. 5 callers. In hindsight, a check raise might have been more appropriate here, I typically don't slowplay hands and with 2 spades and a connected board in a multi-way limped pot, I don't want it to get checked around. I normally wouldn't think that could happen here, but I also haven't seen an 8 way limped pot in quite some time. Maybe just bomb the flop for a huge overbet?
Turn brings the awesome 4s. I choose to bet fold, but would a check/fold have been more appropriate? This is just one of those hands where I can't possible be good anymore, and I'm guessing I should just give up?
I bet the turn, another player raises quite large and the button shoves. Both opponents call and 2 have the 8 and AKss takes it down.
