Villain's pre range is wide, cbets 100%...
Started a discussion with a friend about a particular player we have in our live games. This guy is way too loose preflop and bets almost all the time on the flop as preflop raiser or when checked to in position, but often gives up after the flop. We were discussing the best ways to exploit this. Let's assume we have a tightish image although he's caught us bluffing
a few times.
Let's look at a particular situation. He has straddled UTG and we call in position. He raises his option as the straddler (which we expect more often than not). The flop is drawy with medium cards, let's say Ts 8s 2d. He acts first and cbets as he does 100% in this spot.
First question: Are we looking for balance or simply to exploit his tendencies?
Second, what do we do with this range of hands:
A. Our nut range that we would feel comfortable stacking off. Let's say AT, overpairs JJ+-QQ, KK-AA (plays differently than AT or JJ IMO), TT, 88, 22, T8 + huge draws (NFD+overs, KQ/KJss, Q9ss, J9ss, 97ss).
B. Good 1 pair hands, 99, T9-KT.
C. 6-9-out draws or gutshots + overs.
D. Weakish draws, such as gutter + over (J7)
E. Medium pairs and weak draws: 33-77, 8x.
F. Ax, Kx
G. total air
