I nearly just won a pot I shouldn't have. I limped with 88, Cop On The Edge raised from late position. Flop 99T. I was fairly certain COTE had none of this and check-called, planning to bet or raise the turn. But the turn was a K. I checked, he checked. River K. Great.
"Counterfeited, I'm playing the board," I said.
...and he mucked his hand. Sort of. He pushed it toward the dealer, who stared at him open-mouthed for a few seconds.
And THEN he reached out and turned his hand over, which included an ace.
For the record, I'm not the one who called for the floor.
Little controversy a bit later that tilted the one seat so badly he blew off his stack calling a massive overbet by Cop On The Edge. Overpair no good against three deuces.
What happened was, I called his turn bet, made the nut flush on the river, and was looking down at my chips deciding how much I was going to bet. So I didn't see him check and the dealer wasn't looking at me. So I asked, "you check?" and he opened his hand (which obviously I could beat) having heard only "check". Floor!
He accused me of angle-shooting. Probably I should have showed him my flush but I wasn't interested in sharing.
Down to about T17K, maybe a bit more. No cards. No hurry. It's mostly keeping me out of trouble, anyway.
