Beware Of The Academy Award Callers
It happened to me twice today at the local spot, Paradise Cove. Two callers and 2 great speeches! Here is the situation. I bet the flop and he calls. I check raised the turn and after some brief hesitation the guy says ” I’m probably a donkey for making this call”. Then when I check the river to him he bets out with a bet half the size of my stack. After all of the action to this point I am sure he has something pretty solid but I don’t know this guy from Adam and make a stupid call anyway. Turns out he flopped quads! So Sick!
In the second instance with another guy heads up, I bet out 3/4 pot after the flop and after opening with a 3 bet. The guy goes into the tank for a full 3 minutes and says “It is break time after this hand and I should probably fold this hand but I need to see one more card”. Then he calls. After the river card I shove and he insta-calls. Turns out he flopped a full house… 3’s full of 4’s. So take a lesson from my ass kicking and Beware of the Academy Award callers!
