“What’s Your Play? 2012 WSOP Main Event” Flop
by Andrew Brokos | Published: Jul 12, '12
Edit: Top card on flop is Ad, not Kd. The latter is in my hand. Thanks to Lacroix for pointing that out, and sorry for the significant error.
The most important information is repeated here, but here’s a link to the pre-flop thread if anyone wants to see it.
Villain 1 (UTG+1, 45K stack) is probably mid-30s, part native Hawaiian and part mountain – he’s a big guy, is what I’m saying. I don’t think he’s a professional, but he did ask me earlier in the day if my last name was Brokos and told me that he enjoyed my articles.
Villain 3 (MP2, 30K stack) is a slightly tilty, slightly grumpy, slightly heavyset bearded guy in his late 20′s. He seems like a pro and talks the talk but isn’t actually all that good. He’s on the loose passive side and too willing to play hands from out of position.
It’s level 3 of the WSOP Main Event. Blinds are 150/300 without an ante. Villain 1 open limps. That’s not unheard of for our table – maybe 5% of pots were open limped – nor for this Villain, though he’s generally pretty tight aggressive and raises more often than he limps. UTG+2 limps, Villain 3 limps, the button limps, and the SB completes.
Hero (60K stack) has Ac Kd in the BB and raises to 1800. Villain 1 calls quickly, UTG+2 folds, MP2 thinks for a bit and then calls, and the others fold.
We’re three to the flop with 6300 in the pot. Flop comes
Kd Ad Jd 8d, giving Hero top pair with top kicker and the nut flush draw. What’s your play and why?
