Sorry I don't remember every detail about this hand, but I had been drinking at a bar and was not even planning on playing poker tonight. Then I decided to play poker at 1am after the alcohol kicked in. LOL
So...I ended up at Bally's in Las Vegas. My table broke and I had just been moved to the last table left at Bally's at around 4am. So both players in the hand are new to me. It's a 1/2 game with a max $300 buy in. I have about $650 to start the hand, utg+1 villain has around $450, villain 2 has a total of $29 dollars.
Utg+1 (main villain), open raises to $10. Mp2 is short stacked and goes all in for his last $29. I have AA on the button and decide to flat the $29 to keep the utg+1 player in, hoping he either calls with a marginal hand, or he re-raises (4 bets) his strong hands. Unfortunately for me, villain 1 just calls the $29.
The flop is Qxxss (The other two cards were low cards that I don't remember). There's a front door spade flush draw. The Villain leads for $40. The best hand I put villain on was AQ giving him top pair. Then maybe some Ax and a few other flush draws. Then maybe there was a small chance he flopped a set with a low pair. But he seemed more like a player that would limp a low pair rather than raise in early position, so I discounted all sets except for possibly QQ, which I thought he would also 4 bet with preflop.
But again, I just sat down at this table so I have no idea how anyone is playing. I decide to just call his $40 flop bet. The turn is a blank, he leads again for $60, I just call again. The river is a spade, bringing in the front door flush draw, he checks, I check.
He turns over KK. I win the $200 side pot, but the villain 2 that shipped $29 all in preflop flips over 58ss for the rivered flush for the $85 main pot. I'm less concerned with the main pot then I am with the side pot. With my AA I fell I should have won a lot more against KK in this spot.
Any thoughts on this hand would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!
