Tough tourny hand

    • I'm heads up with the owner of this god darn site. I get it in with top pair vs him when he only has a naked flush draw. He calls. How do I avoid the flush? Live poker is rigged! :)

    • Top pair is just one pair. And with a flush draw on board, you should keep the pot small. Your one pair hand is not a monster. In fact you are probably only a slight favorite. Commit all of your chips only if you know your opponent will fold, or gamble and pray he misses his flush. gl

    • LOL thanks dude. This was kinda a joke post. We were heads up and I had about 8 bb left. I think I will take my top pair vs a flush draw with one card to come(yes we got it in on the turn) 100 percent of the time.

    • Hey, I thought my under-cards were live!

      Btw, I thought we were still on the flop when I was calculating my pot odds.

      Or maybe I just felt it coming...
