Following hot on the heels of last week’s “What’s Your Play?”, here’s another hand where there’s a full house on the board and I beat it. This time I did go for the overbet just because in this case my range looks a lot stronger and my opponent has already checked the river, which weakens his range. Apparently that didn’t deter him, though:
Hero (BB) ($4820)
Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, 8
1 fold, MP bets $60, 1 fold, SB calls $50, Hero calls $40
Flop: ($200) 4, Q, 4 (3 players)
SB bets $140, Hero calls $140, 1 fold
Turn: ($480) Q (2 players)
SB checks, Hero checks
River: ($480) 4 (2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $888, SB raises to $2574 (All-In), Hero calls $1686
Total pot: $5628 | Rake: $2
SB had K, J (full house, fours over Queens).
Hero had Q, 8 (full house, Queens over fours).
Outcome: Hero won $5626
I guess he excluded a Queen from my range after my turn check and thought he could get me off of a chop and maybe a pocket pair?
