$200 NLHE Full Ring: $1/$2 NLHE, FR. AKs OTB, deep stacked, facing 4 bet PF
I played a hand the other day, and I really would appreciate some feedback. I am worried I played it poorly.
My image is pretty tight. I have also shown I can make some good laydowns. I hope to use this to my advantage in the future.
MP1, opener... He seems to overvalue his hands. I feel he is making some poor raises, and he doesn't really give enough thought to opponents ranges. He also seems to be oblivious to position, and the tendencies of the others at the table. I have already folded to him before (face up). I think he feels he can run me over.
He is sitting with $480.
I have $800~$850 ish starting hand.
Competent player, thinks about ranges. Flat calls too much with A-x type hands and SCs.
He seems to be aware of dynamics and villain tendencies. We have pretty much stayed away from eachother. No leveling wars.
He has $300ish.
On to the hand.
MP1 opens to $12. Pretty standard raise size for the table.
Action folds to me OTB.
I look down at AdKd OTB. I decide to 3b, and I make it $40. I can't just flat and go see a 5 way flop.
I have been 3-betting somewhat frequently, but certainly not that often. I haven't shown a light 3-bet yet. No reason for villain to think I am out of line (except for the button in front of me I suppose).
So it folds around to villain. He 4-bets me to $140. He is very aggressive in his demeanor while doing so. He is staring at me, looking like he is thinking "I dare you to call". A big show while he does the chip dance, and places the bet.
MP2 folds, after a little deliberation.
So I am thinking... I can't just spaz out and ship an effective 240 bigs in with AK and flip. I feel like he has a PP. Probably QQ or less. He has another $340 back. All of that will probably be mine if I hit the flop. He will be OOP, about $290 in pot, with a $340 stack.
What should I do here?
I really felt at the time that I should flat and see the flop IP. I also really felt villain didn't have KK or AA. This is based on instinct, and the fact that it looked like he wanted me to fold. I don't think he would behave this way if he had KK+. That's my read, anyways.
So I decide after thinking carefully to call.
Flop is Kh-Jh-6s, about $295 in pot.
Villain immediately ships it for $340. He has that look again like "Yeah that's right, I shoved. I dare you to call this bet!"
I am thinking and thinking. I never thought he had AA or KK. I honestly think he has QQ. If he has JJ, nice hand I guess. But if he has QQ, how can he just ship here? I mean WTF does he think that I have? Pocket 8's? That's what is making me second guess the whole thing.
