Quads on the turn

Chip leader “kingfufu001″ limps under the gun with an offsuit AT. “rsnbrgr” gets kings in the small blind but doubts his opponents will call a pre-flop all in. He completes the blind hoping for a raise, but “DamNienBlack” simply checks his option.

The flop brings both a set for “rsnbrgr” plus a deadly ace for “kingfufu001.” Everyone checks. The turn brings quads and dashes any backdoor flush. “kingfufu001″ makes the minimum bet against two checkers; “rsnbrgr” flat-calls it and “DamNienBlack” folds.

The river makes for a straight possibility but it’s far more dangerous to “kingfufu001,” who has just paired his useless kicker (he’s now got three pair). “rsnbrgr” suspects the chip leader will either fold to any bet or call any bet, so he pushes it all in. “kingfufu001″ must call nearly 11xPot just to win a paltry 5xBB — or worse, tie for half of it — and he’ll lose if his ultra-conservative opponent has any Kx, QJ, AQ, AJ, 77, or TT. “kingfufu001″ is confused by his paired kicker and probably thinks “rsnbrgr” is on a wild bluff, so he confidently calls away ¼ of his chip stack.
