$500 NLHE Full Ring: AKs, 4-way pot OOP
This hand came up yesterday while I was playing $2/$5. This option was not available when I selected stakes in thread. It was $2/$5, not $2/$4....
I am in SB. MP opens for $25, 1 or 2 calls before action reaches me. The people that called are loose gamblers. I suspect MP opener has a really big hand. Instinct.
I look down at Ac-Kc. I contemplate 3-betting. However, I will be OOP, and I hate playing OOP. Plus, I really have this feeling if I 3-bet MP will ram a 4 bet down my throat.
I call. 1 other dude calls from UTG+1. 5-way to flop.
UTG+1 has about $200 back. MP has about 600-700, LP1 has around $400, LP2 has about $700, and I have about $630 after flatting raise.
Flop comes 10h-9c-4c
Action checks to MP opener. He bets around $75. LP1 folds, LP2 raises to about $200.
My read on LP2 - he has been getting beat alot. He is too aggro, raising against opponents who will not fold when he has mediocre hands. He is simply playing poorly. He is always calling with 1 gappers and SCs. But he keeps building huge pots, and he rarely shows down the best hand. He is in the game for 1500-2000 at this point. He is stuck big time.
As for the opener, MP, I suspect he has an overpair. I am about 90% certain he has QQ+. He is a careful player. He is not going to stack off 100+ BBs with one pair.
As for UTG +1, he is a fish, plain and simple. Very little thought goes into his play. However, he only has about $200, and I expect him to shove any draw or any piece of the flop.
As for me.... I have a fairly tight image. I have not played that many hands. I have not been caught bluffing yet.
I am thinking, my overs are probably live. I have a NFD, BDSD.
I suspect LP2 probably has a combo hand, like pair and draw perhaps. No part of me thinks this guy has a set. He is just too active, he raises too much. His range is fairly wide.
I am really thinking about just moving in for $630. I think I have enough equity to do so. I also think I must have some sort of fold equity against all opponents. I have enough chips to move them off their hands, but LP2, probably not.
