So I was playing $5/$10 NL at a new casino that opened about half an hour at my house.
I was on the button. The guy before me raised to $40. The SB and BB are both tight (I knew they'd likely fold without a big hand), and I have AQs (spades). The guy that raised is brand new to the table so I have no read on him.
I raise to $100 - he calls. Flop comes Qd3s7s. I'm feeling great - top flush draw, and top paid with top kicker. I'm really only afraid if he is holding pocket pairs. He bets $150. I call. Card is 5s. I am feeling good, and my mind immediately turns to 'How can I get the most money from him?'.
He bets $200 and my eyes light up. I think maybe he's made a King high flush...I only have about $400 more so I go all in.
Turns the cards over.....4s6s.
