$200 NLHE Full Ring: Live $1-$2, Weird JJ hand in 4-bet pot
Pretty bizarre hand with lots of relevant history in $1-$2 live game.
CO has $250ish raises to $12
BTN has about $400 and raises to $32
I make it $77 and I have everyone covered
UTG has $220 and calls!
UTG is actually a nit-tag who loves to limp reraise his monsters in EP. He's been on an amazing run over several sessions where he just always has it when he bets and somehow gets paid off. There's definitely a tilt factor possible as he had stacked off twice to me this game, which is incredible...On one hand, I 3-bet him pre with KK, and he somehow managed to stack off after I flopped a boat (K88) with an underpair.
BTN is a middle-aged Russian woman who likes to splash around. She's not generally aggro although she had a weird dynamic going on with CO, a friend of hers. She doesn't raise much but sometimes she will overplay midpairs.
As for me, the reason I 4-bet is mostly because, in principle I despise flatting 3-bets OOP with TT-QQ. Not that any of the players in this hand are advanced hand readers, but it's just something I don't think is a good idea to do. Also, I despise turning JJ into 22 and trying to set mine. In this spot, I'm pretty happy to play JJ OOP if I can get HU vs. BTN with lots of money behind.
Anyway, the flop:
UTG has $143 and BTN has $320ish
