Tunica- Passive Party
When he gets to the button, he makes it $8. I look down and see QQ.
I raise to $24. He calls.
Flop is Axx.
$35, I say, pushing chips into the pot.
He thinks for a while, and then mucks KK face up.
"Ace-King," I say. "I had to 3-bet it."
The place is soooo interesting. In tune with David Sklansky's advice about slowplaying AA and KK, I see it all the time. No one wants the gray-haired nits surrounding them to fold to their pre-flop raise.
So last night at the Horseshoe NL$1/3, there was weird action to my left and right. I was in the big blind. The guy utg limps. A few people call, including the small blind.
Flop is 78x. It gets bet, I fold. By the river there's another 7 and 8. The guy to my left pulls out a stack of red chips and is about to bet.
"Noooo, sir, I haven't acted yet," protests the kid in the small blind to my right.
The guy pulls his chips back. The kid checks.
Then the utg guy pushes his entire stack in. "I know you have the 8," he said.
The kid thinks about it and thinks. Then folds.
The utg guy shows limped KK. I'm pretty sure the kid folded sevens full.
