Poker question.....this was a hand from a home game that I play in.
Some pertinent info: 6 handed No Limit Texas Hold Em, .25/.50 blinds. I'm UTG, and I look at pocket 22's. I decide to limp, hope it doesn't get raised, and hope to flop a set. UTG + 1 calls, folds around to the BB.
Flop comes A-5-2. All off suit. BB checks, I fire out a buck into the pot of 1.75. UTG + 1 reraises to 4 bucks. BB folds, I decide to make the call. Turn comes 6 spades, now putting 2 spades on the board. I bet out around 7 bucks, and I'm immediately put all in. I've got him covered, but it's bout another 42 bucks for me to make the call.
Somethings to know - this is a fairly agressive player, and after playing with me for years, he knows that I'm tight, and that he's going to lose me with a huge bet unless I have the nuts or close to it. So, from that perspective I thought he could be weak.
He did overbet the pot pretty ridiculously, betting all of his 42 dollars in chips to call with only 20 in the pot prior. What would you do? Make the call with your set of 2's, or throw them into the muck?
Let me know if you need any more information as I wrote this up pretty quickly - I'll post whether I called or folded later in the thread.
