Seen a lot of players playing like I used to. While I am being tight and keeping a thin range of starting hands I keep a little unpredictable. This one player I saw was very tight pre flop and raises were like clockwork.
about 20c on suited cons, about 35c on small pairs, 50c mid pairs. 70cAK/AQ over a dollar on big pairs.
So its just me and him in the hand. I flat call with A6 suited for 55c pre flop and it hits A67 rainbow. Three reasons I played the hand. One I had position (now seeing the benefit). Two I had a good read. Three, a lesser reason, A6 suited is a tiny bit better than A6. I told myself no fancy play - unless I hit hard I fold.
So, he bets out $1.40. I pause and decide to play it hard and represent a bluff or a scared ace. I bump it to $5 and he shoved all in and showed AK. Turn and river were not help (one was a ten and didnt notice the other).
He moaned at me for being a fish.
This really showed me the importance of both
:Not overplaying TPTK
:Not being easy to read.
I used to be the low stakes player unable to fold AK. when an ace or king hits. Now I read the situation and ask. What would they have to be re raising me?
He moaned at me for playing A6 and then proceeded to tilt a bit off before leaving.
