OK, so you've been dealt QQ and you're feeling pretty good about things and throw out a few BBs. Everyone folds but the villain.
The flop comes and it contains a rocket.
Whatever happens next, I always seem to get burned:
- It is slow played and villain bets on a rag on the turn/river and shows rockets
- I raise and villain calls
- Villain puts in a low/modest raise and I call
- Hero and villain both check to the end
The end result is invariably the same - a pair/set/trip rockets and I'm out of pocket.
Obviously, I should ditch my ladies if a large raise comes in or villain comes over the top but there doesn't seem to be any tells I can use for mid-sized calls/raises.
It would seem daft to constantly fold when A/K arrives on the board without any clear evidence villain has a pair/set/trips.
