i'm sorry.but el o el at all the responses of crai on the flop.The ONLY hand he has here we are ahead of is AT.And maybe some small pairs.If he has small pair, crai is also horrible for obvious reasons.Here is how you play the hand on the flop.Check. He will usually check. If he bets, you fold. That simple.Now, I have absolutely no read on opp..but anytime you put that many bb into the pot pf he'll usually have a big ace, KQ, TT+ type hands. I suppose, he could have 22-99 here as well..but if that is the case I promise you he is going to check it down as fast as possible.If the guy bets this flop you just have to give up, unless you want to gamble with "8" outs to the dirty nuts, or whatever. For those of you that think crai is a good play..why? You think he is betting 99 here (and if so we shoud c/c him down letting him try to bluff us)? You think he will fold any pair + str8 draw combo, any pair + fd combo, after he bets and we shove into an already bloated pot?The ideal thing here is to get to a showdown, yea it sux cuz we are hu..but seriously...IF it goes check/check on both the flop and turn I may "value bet" on the river tryign to get a smaller pp to pay me off, but I really think the best line on the river is to check/call most bets to pick off desperation bluffs. Otherwise, I just dump on the flop...sparing a read that he is not a total nut...but sometimes you have to give even nuts a little credit.- Jordanedit, let me also add I think the turn shove is pretty bad spewage (plz dont get your panties in a bunch, I've done it too).oh, double edit, I sometimes will lead this pot for like $100 or so, but I do it only if I'm feeling like a pansy just check/folding (thus not that great of a play)...In this case though I think hero flop bet is to big in % of the pot.
