Villain has 20,5% VPIP, 15,7% preflop raise, 34,3% postflop aggression (I took these from Opponents->Summaries in HM2, can't find the stats as shown in my display eg. Aggression Factor). I estimated him to have little clue about what he was doing from erratic play I noticed before this hand (not that I am much better).
When I look at the hand now I think I should have taken into account that he might have JQ in his hand... from the way he played I was sure he has nothing and I was ahead.
1.Was my preflop raise correct? I wanted to get initiative and if button wanted just a steal then I get the pot. I didn't really think limpers will swallow my raise. Novice
2. What to think when someone limps and then calls after a 2nd raise?
3. Contibet or not on the flop? I figured from the limp that he doesn't have a pocket pair but that might have been wrong assumption... Connected to 2nd question. I wanted to give him bad odds
4. How bad was my turn All In call? I read correctly that he has nothing but he did have outs (6s and 7s). I knew that he possibly thinks Js help him but those are my outs.
All other general comments welcome. I need to play this type of hand correctly, I feel this kind of stuff is my big weakness since I have so little experience... trying to calculate what he might have and what his outs could be in a short time is beyond me right now but I hope to improve the speed.
