Fold, fold, MP1 calls, MP2 calls, MP3 calls, 3 folds, SB calls, hero raises to $3, MP1 calls, table folds.Flop ($7.50): J :icon_suit_heart: A :icon_suit_spade: A :icon_suit_heart: Hero bets $4, villain calls.Turn ($15.50): K :icon_suit_club: Hero checks, villain bets $7, hero raises to $20, villain calls.River ($55.50): J :icon_suit_club: Hero??Should I lead here (and for how much, I have about $50 left), c/c, c/f?
A rollercoaster indeed! It's a tough laydown but you have to make it. From the way the villian played it sounds like a weak ace. Lets try and break it down a little bit.J A A flop, you lead and he calls. Now it almost feels like a jack at this point because trip aces will usually raise here but he could be slow playing that weak ace.J A A K turn, GIN! You hit your baby! You check with intentions of check raising, bam worked perfectly! He calls, even better.J A A K J river, ****! That killed it. Your only hope would be a jack but this isn't really played like he has a jack by the check/call on the turn. I'm pretty stubborn about these hands and would most likely take the check/call on the river hoping he's over calling with his jack.If you can say with confidence he would play a weak ace the same way then I would have to throw kings full away knowing that my opponent re-sucked me out on the river.Tough call, I C/C, and pray.
