Hi I played this hand at the casino last nite and would like some feedback on how it was played and if I could have played it better thanks in advance for you opinions
hero (co) $2300
hero has a strong image recently showing down some strong hands and taking down some big pots, utg2 is a lag and limps in early pos likes to see alot of flops,
btn is a thinking player, plays a considerably consistent game not agressive but not tight either
utg2 limps , hero limps with 7c8c, btn calls
flop Ad8h8s pot ($17)
utg2 bets $15, hero calls $15, btn calls $15
turn Jh pot ($62)
utg2 bets $50, hero raises to $150, btn calls $150, utg2 folds
river 3h pot ($412)
hero bets $150, btn raises to $350, hero calls $200
the $150 bet on the river was meant as a blocking bet , do we look weak here with a marginal hand ? , if this is the case then btn sees this , thinks hero is probably got a marginal hand (AJ or set 8s) and represents the book or flush.
but if this is a bluff then you would think btn would raise much more as hes giving us 4.5 odds
to call , AJ or set is probably just calling our $150 bet and flush or book looking for value.
my first reaction to this was that we must be beaten here , but the pot odds
made this a call for me ?
