First time playing in years so thought I’d share two interesting hands I had last night. It was a very splashy game, almost every hand was straddled to upwards of 100-150. I tightened up and played the top of my range, mixed in some bluffs in spots and built up to the chip lead at this point of the game.
Hero is in SB (4000) and looks down at K2cc. Folds around to CO (1000) who makes it $40 to go. Button/Villain (1700) calls, hero calls.
Flop: 9 J 2 cc
Hero Checks, CO checks, Villain bets $125. At this point in the game I was at the table for 2 hours, Villain was involved in a lot of hands, I noticed he loved raising/betting almost every river heads up regardless of what he had; competent player but seemed to be too eager to try to bluff, and might have been on tilt as he was stuck for 2-3K and straddled the previous 4 hands. Hero calls, CO Folds.
Hero checks, Villain bets $150. Hero calls. River 4 completing the rainbow.
Hero Checks, Villian bets $400.
Early in the session, Hero (1400) on Button with 67hh. Folds around to Hero who makes it $65 to go. SB/Villain calls BB calls.
Flop: 5 Q 3 chh
Villain checks, BB checks, Hero bets $115. Villain calls, BB Folds.
Villain Checks, Hero Checks back.
Villain Bets $200.
Read on Villain was trending towards fish, saw him go to showdown once with J4o from the small blind in a 3bet pot, pretty much the only info I had on him. I did see him fold to a raise on the turn heads up on a wet board 2 hands before.
