i am playin a PLO tourney right now....it was early and a player wa all in in a 3-way pot. flop of Kd-Jd-4c one of the 2 remainin players went all in....the other person goes into a FIT "why wont u check him out!!??"...and he foldednewayz...the 2nd all-in guy had K-K-x-x the 1st all in guy had 10-9-x-x and rivered a Q to triple up the 3rd guy had A-T-x-x and was fumingmy question is.....WHEN is it considered right or wrong to check down?i've always believed it to be proper when someone is all in close to bubble and neither of the other 2 players has any considerably good hand...in this case i thought the player with the KK was right to try and push the other guy out with his nuts at the time....THOUGHTS??
No matter what you do, you'll be wrong every time. Was at the bubble of a tourney the other day -- I had top two pair and a dude pushes me all in -- in a similar three-way pot. I'm thinking he could have a set, there's a possible flush and a straight on the board. And I want to cash, so I fold. Pusher flips over TPTK; the all-in flips over bottom two pair.
Thankfully, the idiot went all-in and got blindsided by runner runner two hands later and bubbled out. Chat filled with variations on the theme of "justice."---On this same theme, a while back, I had a nut broadway straight on the river in a cash game. I raised the pot amount. Some dude re-raises me, so I put him all in. He calls, we chop our straights, both making a couple bucks from the blinds. Out of nowhere, he GOES OFF on me -- spewing a five minute invective starting off with "haven't you ever heard of the rake?" His argument seemed to center around the fact that he couldn't know I had the nuts unless he raised me and I called, and that I SHOULD have known HE had the nuts, because HE raised my strong bet. At the end of the day, I know I should have muted him, but I argued with him for 20 minutes until he busted out. (Naturally).
