$4 NLHE Full Ring: Two pair on the turn against an unknown Villian. Get it in, trap, or use caution?
I have just sat down at the table and was dealt in for seven or eight hands. I have been practicing playing LAG at micro limits a lot lately, and an ace on the button is like heaven for me. I apologize for the hand format; I do not understand how to save hand histories as text files on Merge. My question is whether it is correct to raise the turn or float to the river. I would also love feedback on how I played the hand up to the turn.
9-handed .02/.04 NL Holdem, Hero is on the Button with Ac 5d. Preflop, it is folded around to me with $3.51 behind. I raise ~2.5 BB to 0.11. SB ($2.93 behind) 3-bets to 0.26, BB folds. Most people would insta-muck here, but not me because 1) folding to such a tiny 3bet is weak and 2) I already have invested the .11 and am paying 0.16 more to win 0.39, 2.43:1 on my money. Finally, I have position, which every LAG loves and adores.
I feel most micro players are going to 3bet lightly as they overvalue suited aces and pocket pairs. So I am putting him on 77+ and AT suited +, AQo+, maybe KQ suited. Pokerstove shows we are a 7:3 dog against that range, which is 2.39 to 1 so it was the correct call, extremely marginally. So we have Ac 5d against 77+,ATs+,KQs,AQo+ in a lightly 3bet pot preflop, total pot is 0.58. Flop comes Jd 9s 5c. Villian checks.
I considered a cbet here but I was having a hard time trying to figure out what I would be trying to represent. Ace Jack? Tens? I opted to check since the pot was already bloated. Also, I feel like he would call with anything in that range I put him on since all of those hands are drawing to overcards or have already made hands. Finally, I didn’t want to get check-raised if he was slow-playing a set of Jacks or Nines as I only had bottom pair (gulp!)
This completely changes the dynamic of the hand, as the pocket pairs should now be scared money and the Aces just made it, most of which I am ahead of. There are also two diamonds, but still no made straights possible. I have two pair against a Villian who checked a dry flop. Villian bets 0.28 into 0.58. Hero?
Thanks in advance,
