First off, brand new here. Apologies for anything stupid I may do. And I played this hand poorly, regardless of results which I won't mention. Already know that, so help me play it better next time! EDIT: First newbie mistake...did not see the thread specifically for cash game hand analysis. My bad...Please move if possible.
Second, last weekend, I was in Vegas and played about 3 hours of the $1/$2 cash game at the Mirage. I've played poker for years, but almost exclusively in a monthly home game tournament setting. Looking to improve, so appreciate advice.
Late in my session, I was up about $100 ($400 stack) and knew it was almost time to leave. (wife on way back from spa...drat) Game had started VERY passive, but had loosened up in the last hour. My image was likely tight aggressive with up and down results. (while no way near LAG, I was def more aggresive than most)
Villain 1 was very ABC oriented - had won a pot off him earlier w my AQ v his KQ. Fairly easy to read. About $300 behind him. Villain 2 was closest thing to a LAG at table, mixed it up well, but had been up and down. $350 behind him.
Villain 1 opens pot to a table standard of $12. I call on the button w
. Villain 2 calls from BB. My pre-flop read on V1 is two big cards or a sizable pair (non Aces, table was limping and trying to win the bad beat w Aces). V2 has a wide range here.
POT = $35
Villain 2 checks, Villain 1 leads out for $20. My action.
On a single suit board with a set, what is your play and why?
I'll post more later, but wanted to start with the first big decision...thanks in advance.
