At the time I was trying to be cute. I had been betting my flush draws hard all night and figured I had a reasonable chance of representing the heart flush with the check raise. When Hollowpoints bet out (like I knew he would), I figured I my plan was coming together. When everyone else but Hollowpoints folded, I felt like I was in pretty good shape.

This is a great idea, but It needs to be used against someone who will fold to the check raise. Hollowpoints, from what I've seen, is not it. At 3/6 it's hard to use your chips like the weapons you think they should be.

Figured after the check raise, a bet out here was my best chance win the pot. Agree? Disagree?

Agreed, but again, you have to be able to identify the players you can use this against. Not every player understands when someone is representing something. Big bluffers, will seldom be bluffed.

So how did these hands turn out?
