re: Poker & $200 NLHE Full Ring: 80NL live poker: Getting check-minraised on flop in low SPR pot
I find the phrase "respecting raises" pretty funny. Nobody at any stake respects anybody's raises unless their opponent is a 8/7 nit; even then the ultra-loose players do not care. When you move up, people still do not respect your raises and 3-bet/4-bet you more relentlessly than the previous stake.
I think full-ring I'd probably check back QJo as played. You are way ahead or way behind here, and there are no flush draws out there. Not too many hand combinations with straight draws out there either, as 2 of the Jacks are blocked. When you stack off here, you are almost always going to be behind.
You were not even pot committed here. You raised to $15, c-bet $12, and had $52 behind. Even if you were more pot committed, you shouldn't be calling off all your chips when you know you're 90%+ of the time drawing to 2 outs or drawing dead.
AJo I'd stack off but not feeling happy about it. We're beat by QQ/JJ, and maybe slowplayed KK/AA (from what I've read almost all 3-bets at 1/2 live are KK/AA, and even sometimes they don't 3-bet pre) and by any random 8x hand. We do however beat enough KJs/KJo/QJs/QJo and maybe some other Jx combo hands these fish are messing around with with a min-raise OTF to warrant a stack-off.
You shouldn't be raising AJo UTG full-ring anyway. UTG full-ring should be super tight, something like JJ+/AQs+. You're OOP, and you have 8 players to act behind you. It's not going to be hard for someone to wake up with a monster, and you're going to have really bad reverse implied odds
. If they were better players, you'd probably also get outplayed a lot more as you're at a positional disadvantage. You're pretty much always going to be OOP in such a loose game, and getting into pretty sticky spots.
