re: Poker & $25 NLHE Full Ring: Calling off 100bb with Aces on low paired board
So I called and of course I was beat.
Ordinarily I snap this one off without a 2nd thought but yeah this one did give me pause if for no other reason than villains stats. He had to have put me on a high pair based on the pre-flop action. The correct play is to shove and get called most of the time by an overpair, which is what he did. But I think I may be being a bit results oriented. My thought at the time was that any small pair would have folded to a 10x raise, not nearly getting the odds
to set-mine(especially with a 17% vpip) .This looked to me like 88-QQ (AA or KK would have shoved pre-flop). I couldn't have been more surprised to see the quad three's.
Against a laggy maniac this is a fist pump call every time. As bad as his pre-flop play was he is still a tight player with very few bluffs in his range. In retrospect I don't think he's ever doing this with less than a set. I've played a few hundred more hands against him since this one went down and I've yet to see him donk off a stack.
There seems to be a consensus that I should have raised more preflop. This is something I will look into but for now I still think this is a mistake. The idea isn't to get everyone to correctly fold , it's to get them to incorrectly call. If somone want's to 10x hoping to spike a set I am more than happy to indulge them. Still, some good thoughts here and thank you all for your comments.
