What would you have done?
I was at the final table of a tournament. I had pocket 4's. I called a small raise (twice the big blind). The flop was 10, 8, 4, all hearts. I did not have a heart. At this time I bet the pot. Everyone folds except for one guy who re-raises all in. I pretty much have this guy figured out. I put him on Ace high with one heart. I thought and thought and decided to call.
My read was pretty close. He had a King and the nine of hearts.
Of course the turn was a heart and he made his flush. The board did not pair so I did not improve to a boat on river.
My legs were pretty much chopped off and I was blinded out shortly after - out of the money!
Now we all pretty much know what the book says and "what I should have done" but everyone knows the same things these days. With so many players you can't always do "what the book says."
So in the situation above, not necessarily what should I have down, but what would you have done?
