First time I had position. 8:heart: 8:spade:, flop is 10
5:club: 8:club: Guy pushed all-in in front of me. I had seen the guy was a tight player. I decided that he didn't have the small flush, because he wouldn't have put his tourney on the line in case the nut flush was behind. I figured he would slowplay the nut flush, so I put him on the nut flush draw. I called him, he turned up A:club:K:spade:, and didn't improve.Second time: ME: 7:heart: 7:diamond: FLOP 6:club: 7:club: 9:club: I tossed out a probe bet (about 1/3 the pot) another tight player who had had several monsters called down and yet to be shown bluffing pushed all-in over me. He was the big stack comfortably at this point, on the merits of the earlier monsters. Smart player behind him (who was the only preflop raiser) lays down what turned out to be K:diamond: K:club:. I decide that he was protecting a small flush, because that would be typical of his play that day, but I was getting 4:1 to fill up, so I called. He shows 9:diamond: 10
. Hits his second pair on the turn, but does not improve after. No more clubs hit, either, so the kings guy was proud of himself.Basically, I would usually play a weak lead and look for the other guy to do something stupid. I will concede that a player creative enough to play a Post Oak bluff can have this pot. I would be made very nervous by a smooth call, but I might get a free card on the river if the guy is trapping.
