£400 NLHE Heads-up: Not fast playing on coordinated board vs well known op.
This is my first post so apologies for any bad formatting. Also was only £40NL not 400.
This hand was played live with an opponent of whom I have a decent amount of experience. The guy is a fairly new player but definitely thinks about his game, can make big folds but is too curious and might over value big overpairs in spots.
*I raise button w 78ss (2BB)
*Opponent rer-raises (to 4.5BB)
[In all the games we've played, rarely seen him 3bet bluff, only 3betting very very good hands. Also I feel I have a Po-F advantage. Suspected range: 77+, AJs+ AK, KQs. My future outs and his hand don't really 'clash')
* I call [getting 2.6-1 + implied odds
if I hit flop hard and he has a big pocket]
* Hit flop hard but obviously straight and flush draws
* He bets 6.75BB
* Decent sized bet [I'm not going to fold. Ordinarily I might have raised to make him pay to draw. However, due to the his range, I think it's unlikely this flop hit him unless he has broadway hearts. I want to keep his over-cards or big pocket in the pot so I smooth call]
POT = 22.75BB
* He checks [Whilst this maybe him slowing down due to 4 to a straight, I expect him to imagine that I wouldn't call his pre flop 3bet with a hand that this card really hits]
* I decide to bet big (21BB) [The only hand in his range that I really fear is 99. A large near pot sized bet doesn't give the odds to continue if he is drawing to a flush. I want to win the hand now.]
* He thinks then raises all in (68BB)
* [Thinking back to his range I can't see what he might have that is ahead, entirely possible, I convince myself to call thinking it would be too nitty to fold.]
^thinking back he may have had the set (8s or 7s) but that only made up a small part of his range and I think I'm ahead more than the required 10/6 odds.
This needed up being really long haha.
Any thoughts welcome
