This is a newly formed $300 max $1-$2 No-Limit 10 man live game. I am in the small blind with:
It goes fold, fold, limp, limp, raise to $12(villain), call, call, I call, $11, fold, and first to limpers fold.
So there are 5 players with $62 in pot.
A♥ 2♥ 9♥
I check to the preflop raiser with the intent to checkraise get clarity on the strength of my flush hoping to get all folds. He bets $50 (this is a larger size bet for this table), everyone folds to me. I checkraised to get a true feeling of where I am in this pot, I min raise to $100. I started the hand with $350 and villain had roughly $280. The villain hesitated and calls only. The turn cards is:
A♥ 2♥ 9♥ A♠
I jam the pot all-in; the villain has $160+ left. He thinks for about a half of minute and calls. I table my made flush, and he holds his cards, the river came with what I thought was the worst possible cards for what I had put the villain on. It was the:
A♥ 2♥ 9♥ A♠ A♣
The whole table including myself groan. I say verbally under my breath, "That was a bad card." The villain stares then says, "You are good." and mucks his hand.
I took me a bit but I did finally put him on one type of hand.
What do you think he had?
