$200 NLHE Full Ring: 2x 1/3 NL Live Hands
Hey guys, hope all is well! Wanted to get your take on two hands I played live 1/3 NL with a little while back.
1/3 NL Live Holdíem Iím sitting with about $350, villain has about $300. Largest stack is about $1300 (the maniac to my left) and smallest is around $200.
At a table of 9 in the CO and look down at Ah Kh
Villain is UTG and open raises to $12. *He is a reg and plays pretty tight for the most part.
Folds to me, I raise to $24 (maybe too little??? I did have the maniac on the button and I didnít want to throw in $35 only to have him ship it and fold)
Folds around the Villain who calls
*So right now Iím thinking he has something along the lines of suited broadways (kind of loose for him, but I donít think he would just call with AA-QQ, but I suppose it is possible.) maybe JJ or TT because he did call someone down to the river earlier with TT and won at showdown, could have just been a good read though.
Pot is $52
Ks Qh 3h
Villain calmly stacks up $75 and moves it in.
I stew on it for a minute, then push all in. So if I was only on the flush draw, itís an easy fold for me. But my rationale behind pushing is Iím sitting with TPTK, a nut flush draw with two cards to go and a backdoor straight draw. Iím pretty sure he has at least two pair, if not a set at this point.
How would you play this out? Is my thinking on this hand rational?
This is an older hand, but one that has always bothered me on how it was played so just bear with me please!
--this one has an absolutely SICK ending to it--
Sitting at a 1/3 NL Live Holdíem with 7 or 8 guys as I recall. Iím second chip lead with about $1400, everyone else is sporting $400-600 or so and the chip lead (villain) has around $2000.
Iím dealt AT suited (donít remember the suit off the top of my head) in middle position
Limps to me and I raise to $16, folds to the villain in the CO who calls.
Folds to the BB who calls and everyone else folds.
*The BB is a fish who has been drinking. The villain has played almost every hand from the time I sat down with him (maybe 2 hours or so) and has caught a lot of hands, hence why he is chip lead right now.
Pot is $55 (or very close to that)
A T 3 rainbow
I fire $35 and get called by both
Pot is roughly $160
2 putting a second suit on the table (not of mine)
*So at this point, Iím thinking the fish is on a flush drawÖ mainly because he checks it and tells
us he has the nut flush draw. Heís drunk, so I believed him given the circumstances. Now Iím honestly not sure what the villain has. He has opened so wide the whole time, itís really ATC. I donít think he would just call my cbet without at least hitting something or having a draw, but hell who knows with this guy. He has done a lot of calling to the river then coming over the top to a river bet or check and taking down the pots also.
So with all that in mind, Iím pretty certain I have the lead on these guys and throw $80 out there expecting the villain to fold and the BB to call his draw (I didn't think any bet would get him off his draw at this point).
Well the villain fires back with $250
BB calls and itís on meÖ
Pot is $640 with $170 to call
Thanks in advance for any advice guys, this site is really awesome and I hope to post more hands in the future!!!
