Action: I bet $9000. Hal called and now offered to do business without showing his cards. This is not allowed in Britain, but it is quite common in Las Vegas. It wastes time, but that is less important in the gambling capital because the table charge is much lower there. Hal was probably offering to save the last bet or even to split the pot. Question 5. Should I: (a) accept (b) reject any such deal? In the actual event I offered to deal it out twice. The pot was $33,000. It was split in two. Then one card was burnt and a river card dealt.

Answer 3: (a) 10 (b) 3 (c) -1 (d) -1. By betting £230 rather than the natural £225, Simeon is indicating that he wants to squeeze every last drop out of this hand. Having known him for 20 years, my feeling is that he is probably on a big draw, not trip aces. The biggest monster draw I could face is K-Q-J-8. Even more devastating, from my viewpoint, would be Q-J-8-7. However, Simeon would not know that he was holding so many outs. It does not matter whether I am facing a big draw or a big made hand.

Many people would not take the risk. Thus $5000 was enough to find out whether I had the best hand. Indeed, my call may have been enough to cause slightly better hands than mine to pass. There was no need to put more money in jeopardy. Hal was not going anywhere. He was hooked for the whole hand. If you decided to call before the flop, then you should not now be passing. What were you hoping for? Miracles? The best that you can usually expect is two pair. Turn: . Answer 4: (a) 2 (b) 0 (c) 10. It is too late to be messing around with small sums.
