$200 NLHE Full Ring: Loose table, K-Jo in position vs bad LAG and tilted drooler (kinda butchered it)
This one should be good for laughter, if nothing else.
I know, fold PF.
Hero is in LP, with K-Jo. Hero has to have a nitty image. I play pretty much TAG, very tight (not really here though). But that's what my table mates have seen so far. Me folding, a bunch. Playing aggressive when I do play.
Aggro-spew station has straddled. Reads on him are:
UTG (covers H, barely) He raises and plays way too many hands, seems oblivious to position, and just seems spewy. Don't know how light he c-bets just yet. But he bets almost all flops. I did see him check-call once in a HU pot. He raised, picked up a caller, and flop came A-K-3r. He check called flop, and c/r turn. His opponent folded the turn, and he showed the table his A-Ko (thank you for that, Mr. Villain!) after his opponent mucked.
EP2 ($200ish) player was the first one to call the straddle, and he is a drooler. He was deepstacked, but recently lost a little over 1/2 his stack. He was raising over 50% of pots, until he lost his face off. The hands he has been showing down are total trash. Opened EP, and barreled flop, turn, and river with J-6dd. He rivered a flush, and messed some dude up. That's one example. Now, he has tightened up a bit, but he is still playing far too many hands. I think he is tilted, from losing a big pot recently (I think he lost pot to UTG, drooler vs drooler). He tried playing at me really hard when I first sat down too. Small 3bs, raising and trying to push me around. He didn't get much from me though. I was very careful.
So, here we go. Here is the hand, from my notes during the game. I'll try to clean it up a bit, so it is easy to read.
Lastly, I limped with intentions of calling the straddler's raise (I know he's gonna raise). I wanted to play a pot IP vs this guy. It ended up just being a bonus that the other shit-for-brains is in there too.
9. CO ($289) Ks-Jh. Straddled pot. 2L, we limp. Gets around to aggro straddler, he raises to $29, 2c (1 calls for $27 AI), we call. Flop Js-9h-3h.
Pretty easy to understand, but 2L, means two limpers. One dude limp/calls all in for $27.
So 3w action OTF with one already all in.
So, OTF, the straddler bets $57, and the other tilted drooler just shoves for $178.
Action is on me. The guy who shoved, probably has a FD or worse, we for sure have him beat. However, this straddler... what does he have? He did react to the drooler shoving. There wasn't much there, but I don't think he liked it. Not sure though.
So I think, and think, and think. I finally decide to just go with the hand, hoping I don't run into it. I shove. Straddler clearly reacts now, with a WTF expression. He tanks, and tanks, and folds. Obv he barreled into 2 opponents, OOP, with nothing very good.
Turn 9c, river 5s.
Board reads Js-9h-3h-9c-5s
So let me have it guys. How bad is this? The only reason I shoved postflop, is because I trusted my read was right (at least against drooler who shoved). Worst case scenario, I thought as played, we put a lot of pressure on UTG straddler, and mayyyybe he folds better, considering postflop craziness. However, one of my poker mentors LOLd hard at me folding out better when I told him hand. He had a good laugh.
