PAY ATTENTION TO STEAM POINT $$$
Villain is tight, but "TILTY!" He currently has 4 racks ($8000) in front of him, but I knew that his STEAM POINT was at 2 bad beats (he already had 1 against him... so he was ready to blow). If I could give him one more, those chips in front of him would definitely start flying .
Villain raises UTG, folded to me OTB. I 3-bet w/ 6,3o. He just calls (that was a good sign for me, because he'd definitely capitola w/ huge hand).
He fires, I raise, he 3-bets... I gulp... then CALL! His 3-bet wasn't gr8 for me, but he's capable of re-testing my flop raise.
He checks... "HUH????" I think to myself (really strange line for him) ... I bet, he raises (oh crap, but I'm committed to testing his steam point. I want those tilty-chips) , I 3-BET!!!!!!!!
He doesn't make a move for what seemed like 10 minutes... then mucks pocket 10's face-up. I FLIP OVER 6,3o... and proceed to scoop 3 of his 4 racks in less than hour-and-half!
Always pay attention.
