New (new to me) betting strategy
Last night on $10NL I saw something I haven't seen, at least not on a consistent basis.
Someone bought in short stacked, seemed normal, except for their betting: every time they bet, they overbet the pot.
First time it happened I thought, okay, you really wanted that one. The second time he was the BB, SB raised, he called, then on the flop he bet 1.25 at a 0.90 pot.
He didn't play every hand, and sometimes would check through or just call, but whenever he bet, he would overbet the pot and take it down because noone could see a reason to stay in.
The only time he got called down was in a family limped pot. I had 33, no one bet at the flop. Turn came a 3, he overbet the pot; 1.50 into a 0.70 pot. I called, everyone else folded, he pushed on the river and I called taking it down with my set over his AA. I guess he was waiting for some action since he was in early position and then decided he wasn't going to wait any longer, but unfortunately had waited too long.
I tried to stay around and watch because I thought this was an interesting betting strategy but it was late.
It was new to me. Anyone use something similar on a regular basis?
