Default (LC) Wow the Pacific LO8 games are good.

Pacific 2/4

1st hand

I have A23x suited to the ace in clubs. Five to the flop in a raised pot.

Flop comes 8 [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] 6 [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] 4 [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]

Checked to me and I bet. Everyone calls.

Unfortunately the turn is the 8 [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]. I check/call, still 5-way action.

The river is a blank and I check/call expecting to get quartered. I scoop.


2nd hand

I have A2xx in a 7-way raised pot.

The flop is T [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] 7 [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] 5 [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]. Checked to me on the button and I bet, everyone calls.

Turn is 4 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]. Checked to me and I bet again. Everyone calls, still 7-way action.

River is a blank and I check/call a bet, as do 4 others. I'm hoping that I'm getting quartered, not sixthed. I get half of the pot when no one else has the nut low.

All I can say is wow.

For not betting the turn! And 3-betting if possible!

your turn/river play really sucks in hand 1. don't be a nit. you're 5-handed in a loose-passive game with a board that can make an absurd amount of 2nd best hands. bet, and 3-bet usually.

in hand 2, you can't check/call on the button, and if it's a bet and at least 1 call to you, raise. don't be a nit.

Yes, apparently the Pacific games are so good because I'm there.

Even though my high is probably no good now, and it's very likely that I'm getting quartered (assuming average players, which might not be a good assumption at these tables)?

Probably no good! You just think they smooth-called a set or two pair on the flop! Weak tight, yikes, fix that

Not to beat a dead horse or anything but I agree with everyone else here. In a 5 way pot I will always be betting the nut low b/c you are making money if you get quartered. I also bet it 4 way b/c i find that its more likely to get 1/2 than to get 1/6. So in a 7 person pot you can get 1/6 and be making money. See. Also... you check calling A23 clubs on first hand is pretty terrible.

But thx so much for the info because ive been looking for a softer 2-4 game.

I pump the whole way. You have no assurance that your high is no good, nor do you have assurance for your low. In fact, I bet a nut low into 3 with no high on Pacific because the games just rock that much.
