    Decisions

    I was playing a particularly aggressive player in a 4 player heads up at the final table. The hand prior to this i beat him with 3kings and he had been prone to making big bets after taking a beat. This is what it looked like:

    PokerStars Game #39287779826: Tournament #239928913, $6.00+$0.25 USD Hold'em No Limit - Match Round II, Level III (50/100) - 2010/02/05 14:22:36 PT [2010/02/05 17:22:36 ET]
    Table '239928913 1' 2-max Seat #2 is the button
    Seat 1: Cvntrycrushr (3440 in chips)
    Seat 2: ZVV52 (2560 in chips)
    ZVV52: posts small blind 50
    Cvntrycrushr: posts big blind 100
    *** HOLE CARDS ***
    Dealt to Cvntrycrushr [6h 3h]
    ZVV52: raises 200 to 300
    Cvntrycrushr: calls 200
    *** FLOP *** [Ks 5h 4h]
    Cvntrycrushr: bets 500
    ZVV52: raises 1760 to 2260 and is all-in
    Cvntrycrushr: calls 1760

    It was quite the gut shot. Just wondering how others would have called it.

    You have an open ended straight flush draw. You are ahead of most hands (even made ones) here.

    Playing micros is like getting a rectal exam from a leper who walks away with 9 fingers.

    Yeah, this is a fist pump, fuck I'm good snap call.

    Only behind a set and maybe two pair, and only slightly behind.

    On the other hand, I only hit rainbow gutties.......fold.

    +1 to the fist pump. No matter what, you're getting in with such an awesome shot for the win. Also, you still have chips (approx. 8xbb) left if it goes badly. Seems like a good to great spot to me.
