How would YOU play it?

Thanks to all that played.

Here's what I had put him on: as Mad said, I thought he definitely could have had the set of 5's to flop an over set to my under set. That would leave me drawing to one out, the case 2.

However, the way he pushed me all in on the flop like that made me think that he perhaps had something like AK AQ suited, as the two was a spade on the flop and so was the 6 on the turn. He would be pushing with the nut flush draw and TPTK if he had AK, but my question then was why didn't he raise preflop if he really had big slick.

So, after trying to figure out if he had me beat, I decided that he didn't have the 3/4 and he probably didn't limp with AA either, so there was a good chance that I was in the lead or drawing to one out if he really did hold pocket 5's.

I made the call. He flipped A8 suited for the nut flush draw and top pair. River was 5 of clubs, filling me up, and his missed flush was irrelevant. I take down the pot.

But...I had such a hard time calling that bet right there. He had so many outs if I was ahead and he was drawing to the flush, or he could have the deck crippled with an overset. Very hard to play those pocket 2's sometimes, but it paid off big in this situation.

I also was big stack at the time, having his 42 covered by another 30 or so, so part of me wanted to forget the 15 I had invested in that pot, and pick a better spot. But the gambler in me, and knowing his tendancies, couldn't let me fold the hand.

Woo hoo, cookie for me. While I was reading your post. the first thought that came to my mind was A8. Of course, that's probably the last time I will be right. At least I know where to go to post my poker questions from here on out lol.

didnt read down because didnt know if you posted the result,
Id call and put him on two pair.. He seems like a loose player from your post and would like to try to bluff you by your style of play, and if by bluffing you it will make him feel better about himself. And if he has two pair maybe he feels you just has a strong starting hand like A/face card knowing your a tight player and thus bet so much thinking he had you beat with his low kicker.. so if that is the case then he over bet like that because he has you beat at the turn and doesnt want you calling because of the chance you catch an over card...

id call

UTG=Under The Gun...which i'm not 100% but i believe is 1st to act, or 1st player after the big blind

TPTK=Top Pair, Top Kicker (i.e. holding A-K with A-7-2 on the board)

Wow. 8-o I was part right. I was guessing that's what UTG was, and I had the Top Pair right...

I guess I more know than I know I know. :-B
