€200 NLHE Full Ring: Live 1/2 88 UTG+2
Local barcelona casino. 2am. Mostly regulars at the table. I had a little wild image after value beating in bwar a
in the river. That hand went like this. I posted a dead blind in the CO to create a little of a fish image and it folded to me. I raised 3 bb. The BB called. The flop came Axx and I checked behind. The BB lead the turn when a K came and I called. He checked the river when a blank came and I thought he could very likely have played a K this way so I valuebetted my K like 35% of the pot (14e) and he called with AJ.
But well, the hand I wanted you to discuss is the following: a seemingly pretty good player, young, raises UTG 4bb and I flat with 88 in UTG+2. Everybody folds. The flop comes 343r. He checks, and I bet like half pot for protection and value from 55-77 and AK/AQ as he is suspicious of these types of boards and would think I have Ax a lot of the time and I am floating or I have ans amall pair and cant sustain a lot of heat. He calls. The flop comes a K. I check behind as I see no point in turning my hand into a bluff. But maybe I should have? He would probably check the river and I don't think he has the guts to c/r the turn with AQ. The river comes another overcard, an awful J not completing anything and he leads for 2/3 pot. Should I fold? At the mooment I thought that I was behind his value bet range and that frankly I couldnt thing a hand apart from ace high that didnt beat me except AQ. He should c/c the river if he has something like TT/JJ and let me bluff right? Well I dunno... Any thoughts would be appreciated
