CALLING WITH A GUTSHOT - ONLINE $2/$4 LIMIT
Here's an example of an abysmal preflop hand in the big blind that became a
very promising one. I'm in seat #9 and am dealt
The player to my left, #10, calls $2, as do players #1, #6, and #7. Player #8 calls the big blind for $1. I
check, of course.
Six players, $12 in the pot.
The flop comes
Player #8, the small blind, checks. The action is on me. I have a gutshot
straight draw, and I need a five to fill it. I can't count the five of diamonds as a solid out since it could make
someone a flush. Lots of people will call a single bet with two suited cards when playing low-limit. I'm about
ready to throw this hand in. This is an easy check.
Player, #10, to my left, bets $2. Players #1, #6, and #7 call. Player #8 folds. There are now five players
(counting myself) and $20 in the pot.
