CaptainKout..I doubt AA or KK, because he shouldn't have that read on me yet...have never played with the guy before, just 2 orbits, haven't done any of the sort yet. Last AA vs KK we both fired aggressively pre.
C9--how do you play the streets?
c9/John...AQs is well ahead of villain range for small raise on button. Maybe not all $2/5 tbls run like this..but @ my casino (and def on this table) this could be 78s to qjo to a9s to any pp. Almost no one just throws in $5..(besides really old ppl?). Especially from late position. I like more info before I go into the hand. Easy fold to a 4bet...I get him away from alot of the garbage hands..and I get alittle more info. Don't see why that's terrible play.
I figured no one'll like the flop c/r...whats the proper play..cbet? or c/fold?. I find c/r more effective then cbet in that spot, might be wrong though. I hate cbet, getting called, and having to debate second and third barrel..c/r usually gets the job done (especially on this board where he probably has air or mid pp, nothing to feel good about when they run into a c/r). Here obv irrelevant cause I spike the turn.
River..whats the proper move? "Value" bet so-so hand for a few hundred/commit to call shove? I'd rather make the decision with my chips still in my stack. Check/Check woulda been fine w/me there.
John, I agree w/your rule on bluffing
. Pot size around $1200 though..Hero's got around $800 behind..not an unreasonable overbet bluff here. He has no reason to think anything less than the $350 I bet on the turn would get me off..
