2/5 NL Hold Em' game. Min buy-in $200 Max $500. 10 players at the table, I am behind the button 2nd to last to act. Player raises $20 pre-flop, gets 4 callers, including myself. ($100 in the pot)

I am holding King/8 of clubs.

Flop comes out Queen (diamond) King (hearts) 8 (spades)

First player bets $70, second player folds, third player calls $70, comes around to me.... I raise to $400.

The player behind me, the button, goes all in for $428.

Two $70 callers both fold, comes around to me, obv I put in $28.

Now he's all in and there's no betting action left.

Button is holding a hand as 6 - 7 off suit (hasn't shown yet but this is what he has)

Turn comes out a 9 of diamonds, river comes 5 of spades.

Player catches runner, runner straight.

In all my years of playing poker, I have never seen a scenario like this. This player calls a $400 raise on the flop with QK8 showing holding 6/7 at a $500 max buy in table needing  
runner, runner for a straight... 

Anyone?

sounds like he just wanted to go home-- or misread his cards -- tough way to lose a hand

Agreed with the above. Worst call of his life, right until the time it won.


Poker sucks but I would look to play with that Donkey again.


Better Luck

welcome to playing $2/5 at Hammond haha.  Trust me, I play there weekly and there are a few players that are capable of making this bonehead of a movie at $2/5 there.  But, if you have enough sessions you more than make up for it in terms of profit.  

complete sidenote - why re-pop there to $400?  you dont see any draws you are trying to make pay for it and a hand like QK has you dominated already with one player still behind. Why not re-pop for say $200 and see what comes on the turn?  Granted, the player most definitely was going to stick around at that point being open ended, but at least you'd have more info and can make a laydown to something like a QK or possible open-ender/flush draw.  I think you still make the call but at least you have more info, rather than pot committing yourself on the flop.

not judging/critiquing, just more curious than anything else.

Why did you call $20 with K-8 instead of folding? Please don't tell me the most novice answer on the planet, which is "because it was suited." LOL

I feel pretty confident answering on behalf of the original poster here, simply put the price is right to call. A little thing called pot-odds are certainly in your favor especially knowing you'll act in late position throughout the duration of the hand. 

With 4 people post flop, I wouldn't over play two pair, let alone not even the best two pair out there possible - however, that's a whole different discussion.

I do not believe he CALLED a $400 raise with 67, two unders, off suit and only two cards to come.


Sorry, I don't believe it.
