Presto is Gold (Part 83)

Here's a little "guest presto love" for your reading pleasure:

PokerStars $1/2NL, 6-handed

*** HOLE CARDS ***

UTG calls $2
SB calls $1
csquard checks his BB with [5s 5d] (how you check with Presto here is beyond me!)

Craig lays down the ultimate preflop deception by just checking his monster preflop.

*** FLOP *** [5c 5h 2c]
SB bets $5
csquard calls $5
UTG folds

*** TURN *** [5c 5h 2c] [Jh]
SB bets $12
csquard raises $12 to $24 (pot sweetener)
SB reraises $26 to $50
csquard rereraises $26 to $76 (another pot sweetener)
SB rerereraises $149 to $225 and is all-in (he takes the bait)
csquard calls $111 and is all-in

*** RIVER *** [5c 5h 2c Jh] [4h]

*** SHOW DOWN ***
SB shows [2h 2d] (a full house, Deuces full of Fives) (ouch – nice cooler!)
csquard shows [5s 5d] (four of a kind, Fives)
csquard collected $387 from pot

I think that I played the exact hand, but I had the 22. :)

I hate those pot sweetener minraises. It's like standing on the street corner screaming, "I HAVE THE NUTS, I HAVE THE NUTS!"

SubZero said...

I agree Gnome, but on those rare occasions when your opponent is thinking the same thing it's like waving a gun at a blind man.

For some reason, I still thought I was ahead when he rereraised here. I think every other time this hand is played, sb has A-Ko and folds early.

That csquard must be some kind of brilliant, though.
