i.e., I was playing a $1-$2 no limit cash match at a local poker room. I limped in holding 2, 9 unsuited on the dealer button, so I could see a little action. Flop came down A-A-4. An individual in starting position laid a $15 wager. 2 players drop out and it was my turn to act. I really should have folded, but his game play seemed a bit off. I read this contender as a weak-tight player, and typically if he had the biggest hand he would just check, so I called.

The turn came down with a 7, meaning it was a A-A-4-7. My opposer placed a further bet of $20. I hesitated a tiny bit, but made a decision to re-raise an additional $30thirty dollars on top of his twenty dollars. He folds and I won the chips.

On the flip side, players at starting position might use their poker spot to check-raise the late positioned competitors and trap them afterwords at the end. In Hold’em, each ends, last and starting should be played carefully.
