If we bet $80 into it we'd have only $70 behind and have to call a shove so the results would be the same, but had we been deeper we could slow down if he just flats or possibly fold if he raises.
As played though this is an autoshove. While villain had KK this time,. he'll have overs with spades or smaller overpairs a ton
I was brand new at the table at the time, but later on I figured that Villian was super timid and on a heater. He would only play near nut hands pre-flop, rarely ever calling any kind of raise with hands other then AQ+.
So at the time when he had KK he probably didn't intend on playing them tricky, but he would have been afraid to get too committed with the hand by re-raising.
I figured a 3-bet PF would end up the same, since villian would most likely flat my 3-bet, I would have to bet flop, leaving me with change.
Um also, could you explain how it would work if I 3-bet to $50, then bet $80 on the flop leaving myself with $70. If he flats the $80 on the flop, am I folding my hand anywhere in this hand? Just curious why the betsizing. I understand its a little awkward cause of stack size.
