Default well.......

sooooo, last night after I bust out of a tournmanet i'm playing in, in 11th place out of 5,000 I decide to play a bodog cash game.

playing at a .05/.10 table and am dealt Q K off, I raise it to .30 in middle position (first to raise the pot) and one guy folds behind me, the cut off calls my raise and everybody to act after him folds the flop comes a rainbow of 9 J A. I bet out .30 again. He raises me 1.00 to 1.30. Now I have a gutshot, and am semi tilted from busting out of the tourney in 11th place lol, so i just call. The turn brings a 10!!!!!!! what do i do here? well he raised me on the flop, so i'm not going to change what i'm doing, so i bet out another .30. Hoping he will raise. He then raises me ALL IN a whopping 13.26 more!!! so of course I call. The turn comes another ace. i'm doing my little irish jig thinking i've won the pot here. He then turns over his A 10. NH

lol....

i don't really like boasting about bad beats... but these 2 hands happened to me almost simultaniously on 2 different tables the other day, and they fit the OP's theme...

title: why not to draw to gutshots.

(discplaimer: first hand villain is donk, I know he'll stack of with TP. Second hand is obvious, I hope I'll get someones stack, with straight over straight... and in both hands my plan worked.)

you need to read the book "Lee Jones talks bad beat strategy"

best advice is
"after winning 2 hands as 30-70 dog you could try win some 20-80 dog hands"
or
"watch out when other players lose coinflips and try to flip more against these loosers and less against the guys who are good at it. But to really improve your coin flip skills you will eventually need to take on some real luckboxes."
