Cash game this weekend went ok - lost 60BB. I'm not winning much these days, but I can't find much wrong with my play. I lost the most on 2 hands, AQ vs. AK, and JJ vs. KK, both against players that could be holding much, much worse. Coolers, nothing more.
I had one interesting decision. I raised up a limper with Queen-Jack offsuit on the button. Both blinds called me, the original limped folded. We went 3 way to the flop.
The board came king-six-four with two spades, a total whiff for me. Both players checked. I decided to c-bet the board, hoping I could get at least one fold, and then barrel against the other player on any broadway or club. However, both players called.
I was pretty much done with the hand, but the turn gave me some equity - a ten of clubs. I now had an open-ended straight draw.
Again, both players checked to me. Against one player, I would double barrel this card all day. But in this situation, vs. two players, having somewhere around 6 outs, I felt like a check was best. I couldn't count on getting two folds, and there is always the worry of a checkraise blowing me off my draw (maybe not MUCH of a worry in this straightforward game).
That way my only interesting decision on the night. It was made more interesting by the fact that I hit the nuts on the river with a red nine. I chose a bigger sized bet, 25BB (close to pot) and got INSTANTLY called by king-ten. Had I bet the turn, my river bet (and subsequent winnings) could have been even bigger. But I still think the check was best.
