Looking back, I don't really either. At the time, I was thinking, "oh hey, look, a 6-outer, I only need ~ 1:7.5 to call this, which is exactly what I have. Cool. *click* ", but in retrospect, that could easily have been KJ, AJ raising, and in each case, I'd be reverse dominated and would have no way of knowing whether or not I would be good if a K or an A did hit.

Oh! Sorry! Forgot that part. =)

Hand #1:
Villian flips over 9-10 for the straight. Wasn't exactly expecting that and I'm still scratching my head over that one. Was one of the bigger shots I took with AK.

Hand #2:
Villian turns over KJ and I scoop up the pot. Kicking myself for not attempting to cap the river.

Hand #3 (the later post):
Somehow, I ended up with the best hand here. SB turns over 9-8 (???), BB turns over T-6. Hrm...

I'm folding the flop. You have nothing. UTG has AK, AA, KK QQ or some other monster hand and you have a hope and prayer that even if you hit your hand you can lose.

And THAT is why everybody should look at Hand Histories. What seems smart at the time looks silly the next day and THAT is how you become a better poker player.

EDIT: Ok, the quote caught me off-guard. You are obviously not taking about that hand.

Grinder, you appear to be quoting a hand that flops trips.....

I'm in agreement re calling 2 bets cold on the flop with 2 overcards. I thinks it was just a simple miscounting outs problem. I'd have given myself no more than 4 outs there (maybe 1/3 of an out each for A and K due to all that action you've got to think someone has AA/KK/someother monster you're WAAAY behind to although the possiblity of QQ or an A coming over KK means they're not totally dead and 1 out each for the 2 backdoor draws since they're both to the nuts) at most.

4 outs at max..7.5-1 odds presented with players behind, one of which has a decent chance of coming back over the top. Easy fold.
