OK, so in our little cash game last week, here was a turning point in the night...

Blinds are.10/.25 with a $20 buyin
Before the hand, I've got about $27-ish and the villian has about $13-ish.

I am UTG with  qspades jspades and raise to .75 which has been a table standard raise by everyone all night. Dealer calls, SB (VIllian) calls and BB folds.

Flop comes  tspades 8spades 7spades

Sweet!! SB leads out with $1, I raise to $3, Dealer folds and SB calls.

Now I figure him to play this way with  7clubs 8clubs or even  9spades and a 10.
The turn brings the 7hearts.
He goes all-in for his remaining $9.70
So I think for a little bit. If he had turned a boat, I'm dead to the  9spades. But if he did have a boat, would he bet that big?? Knowing him, NO.
So now maybe I'm looking at something like  aclubs 7clubs or  adiamonds tdiamonds.
I get him talking a bit and decide to call.
He flopped a straight, the river didn't matter and I scooped a $27-ish pot.

As I added this hand to my memory banks, I remember him betting very similar in the past (pushing with the 2nd or 3rd best hand), but putting the pressure on yours truly. ;D

He should have paid me off on that one......

Yeah, unless you've seen villain overbet with big hands it's hard to put him on a Boat here. You'd figure he'd want to bring you along if you had a Flush draw. He could also maybe have AsXx and trying to push a semi-bluff through.

Well, everyone seems to be comfortable with putting up $20 and it's just about 100BB. We used to play tournament style with a $20 buyin, so i figured to make the transition of T to cash game as seemless as possible, ii'd keep the buyin the same. Also people will be more willing to rebuy for only
$20. I've actually got a couple of people that buyin for $10. They don't fair so well though ;D

He should have paid me off on that one......
