*** FLOP ***: [4s 9h 2s]
UTG is playing very loose... 80/52 and 3b like 25%
BTN is a loose-ish reg.. 33/21
PF.. a standard isolate
Flop... really marginal spot but it seemed like a cool decision at the time given the 36bbs inn the pot and utg's super lose range.
A couple of thoughts.. If I bet ~$7 and BTN shoves i need ~%27 to call, pretty sure I have that vs his range (just about...). BTNs range here pf will be double suited connectors, maybe single suited too.. double connected pairs with a suit, good KK and QQ and double suited connected/broadway JJ. Not many 94/92/22/44 hands. My concern would be a hand like KK with spades or 9TJQ with spades.
if I bet and BTN folds and UTG shoves it's a pretty easy fold given stacks. He's loose, but will have at least a pair 9 or higher +fd shoving here.. I'm like 22% vs that at best.
Bet/folding 1/2 pot is an option. There are some good cards for my hand on the turn.. namely any non spade 7,8,9,T,J,Q. However, I may get shoved on light with that line by BTN given dead money and UTG's loose range.
It's not really a spot/dynamic where I'll be perceived to be c/r all that often. Once I check BTN can bet/call with a pretty wide range given the money in pot and that I'll be folding a ton, and he'll know that.
Sooo.. what do you do?
