Some thoughts on a Stud hi hand please...
Posted by Simon Ash
Spoiler - I also posted this on 2+2 so it may seem familiar - I'm new(ish) to the Stud games and trying to gather as much assistance/comments as possible!
This is from a HORSE tourney on Stars - we are playing Stud Hi at 60/120
Seat 1: (2834 in chips)
Seat 3: (2740 in chips)
Seat 4: (1982 in chips) is sitting out
Seat 5: (2705 in chips)
Seat 6: villain 1 (1043 in chips)
Seat 7: villain 2 (2393 in chips)
Seat 8: Hero (2871 in chips)
ante is 12 chips so 96 in pot.
*** 3rd STREET ***
Dealt to seat 1 [2c] - brings in for 18
Dealt to seat 2[Qc] -folds
Dealt to seat 3 [2h] - folds
Dealt to seat 4 [Qd] - calls 18
Dealt to villain 1 [Jd] - calls
Dealt to villain 2 [Jc] - calls
Dealt to Hero[9d 9h Kc] - calls
I see no reason to go mad here - lots of high cards out and my 9's may well not be good.
*** 4th STREET ***
Dealt to seat 1 [2c] [Tc] - calls
Dealt to seat 2 [Qd] [3s]- folds
Dealt to villain 1 [Jd] [4d] - calls
Dealt to villain 2[Jc] [Kd] - calls
Dealt to Hero [9d 9h Kc] [Kh] - I fire the double bet (120) to get people out and see where I am in the hand.
Obv a K being dead is not great...my presumption is that seat 1 is probably flushing as is villian 1 (although if he rocked up with 2's and called it wouldn't amaze me). Villain 2 is probably 1 good pair with some straight/backdoor stuff going on.
*** 5th STREET ***
Dealt to seat 1[2c Tc] [4s] - folds
Dealt to villain 1 [Jd 4d] [2s] - calls 120 and calls aging
Dealt to villain 2 [Jc Kd] [Ac] - raises to 240
Dealt to Hero [9d 9h Kc Kh] [2d] - I bet 120 again and call
Don't like the raise but am obv never folding. Villain 1 has bricked off and I must be live. At the time, my immediate though was straight (although 2 Q's are dead)..
*** 6th STREET ***
Dealt to villain 1 [Jd 4d 2s] [7d] - check folds
Dealt to villain 2 [Jc Kd Ac] [7h] - bets the 120
Dealt to Hero [9d 9h Kc Kh 2d] [As] - I check and then call
The ace is good as it limits his 2 pair possibilities. Given that if he was straight/flush chasing he missed big style - I wonder if I should have raised here?
*** RIVER ***
Dealt to Hero [9d 9h Kc Kh 2d As] [Ks]
Hero : checks
villain 2: checks
I check here as I don't think he'll call unimproved. I called his raise and his bet on 6th so I have obviously have a reasonable holding - 2 pair being the most likely. As I could well have improved I doubted he'd call with a busted draw...
I hoped he'd bluff/value bet me...obviously he didn't...
Some constructive thoughts would be very much appreciated.
I'll post the results if people want obv.
