*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to Blinders [8h 7h]

Supes15 folds
Supes15 is sitting out
RabbitzRule folds
ethanolcorn raises to $2
Supes15 stands up
kcast555 calls $2

Late position, medium high suited connector, min-raise. I have to call here.

Blinders calls $2
lari1 folds
Wibez folds
mpaperstax calls $1

*** FLOP *** [Ks Th 6c]

Gutshot plus runner runner flush potential. I count this as about 6 well hidden outs.

mpaperstax bets $1
ethanolcorn raises to $3
kcast555 calls $3

I was going to call the $1 for sure, but the raise almost scared me out. The overcall, started to make it right again. Assuming mpaperstax calls, its $3 for a $20 pot. 6 outs is plenty.

Blinders calls $3
mpaperstax calls $2

*** TURN *** [Ks Th 6c] [9c]

There's my gutshot.

mpaperstax checks
ethanolcorn checks
kcast555 bets $22.10, and is all in
ndo777 has returned

I think I will just call. I don't want to scare off the big stack behind me.

Blinders calls $22.10
mpaperstax calls $22.10
ethanolcorn folds

*** RIVER *** [Ks Th 6c 9c] [4d]

Harmless river, no flush, no paired board.

mpaperstax has 15 seconds left to act
mpaperstax bets $84

Intresting bet. No way he bets that much and has my hand beat. Only the nuts beats me here. I will get greedy and push for my last $0.85.

Blinders raises to $84.85, and is all in

alnoing1 sits down
mpaperstax calls $0.85

*** SHOW DOWN ***

Blinders shows [8h 7h] (a straight, Ten high)

So what did he have????







mpaperstax shows [Qh Jc] (a straight, King high)

alnoing1 adds $35.45
mpaperstax wins the side pot ($169.70) with a straight, King high
kcast555 mucks
mpaperstax wins the main pot ($83.80) with a straight, King high

Interesting hand, Blinders. This is where the Monday morning quarterbacks usually post here how you could have read him for the QJ by the way he did this or that in the hand. Bottom line is, I don't see how you could reasonablt put him on the one hand that beats you. Even though in retrospect he played it just the way one would expect him to play with QJ, I just don't see how someone could lay the made straight down under those circumstances.

Tough beat. Enjoyed your challenge immensely though.

If your willing to lay down the second nutz in that situation, you will not make money in poker.

What makes the hand interesting is that, I rarely play suited connectors to a preflop raise, and rarely chase gutshots. Because of this, I don't really know how to think it through properly. I think you need to make sure your gutshot is to the nutz or probable nutz.

It is very reasonable, I could have put him (or someone else in the hand), on QJ before I decided to draw to the gutshot. That's probably how the hand should have been played (fold to the flop action). Once the gutshot hits there is pretty much no turning back, and I think I played it right.

From QJs perspective what hands does he put me on that I call the $80+ river bet. I guess 2nd nuts or a set. But, 2nd nuts was a gutshot hit after decent flop betting, and it would have been a weak way to play a set. This guy was very lucky to get a call on the river with that, but he looks like a genius for jamming the river with the nutz and getting called.
