I'm basically continuing my story. I play like that if I have a set or a straight or an over-pair, so I also play that way when I have less than optimal hands. That way people can't put me on a specific hand. It's something I brought with me from 6-max, which is all I played until a short while ago.
You can probably guess what *I* do to people who like to check or min-raise when they don't hit their hands? I don't want to be one of those people. (It helps keep my W$WSD positive
The raise also defines his hand. There's a lot of draws he'd call with on the flop. On the turn, I'm not letting him see the flop for free, and I'm not making a weak bet.
And I think my draw is pretty significant. I'm open ended, and have have the Jacks locked up, so if he's drawing to a guy shot (and it's entirely possible with those stats) I have him by the short hairs.
Back to the hand...
Now with his shove, I put him on A/K. I mean, why shove the turn when that meaningless 4h hit?
