Hi, CardsChat community!
Have for you this hand from 10NL, which I feel like I played very bad.
Villain is kind of bad reg
I feel bad for this hand cause I kind of know his hand (QQ-KK) and can't do anything about it. Of course, I can represent a trips, but I already have a SDW hand. Also, I feel like I have an easy fold OTR, but I also become too exploitable and don't have enough experience to fold my jacks ORT anyway. He doesn't have any bluffs as all of his bluffs bet the flop (or at least the turn). But I feel like that's also a bad play to just check-fold my JJ all thee streets and give up. Or should I just fold them on preflop after villain's 4-bet?
Feel free to criticize my game as much as possible, and I'd be glad to hear every mistake I made in this hand.
I think your read is correct, V is heavily geared towards KK. V is likely bluffing on the turn with bottom of his range like TT and bet big ace, so his river range is just KK and 1 AA combo. Not entirely sure if he would bet QQ.
Also some players could 4bet weak suited aces and get one river street value here.
Perhaps you can check raise OTR as JJ is literally junk in this spot.
You have read the Villain right. Villain steals a lot but when he can not steal he shuts down immediately (his AF 0.8 is very low). So you can say this player is a bit passive but steals a lot. Here, he 4-bet one of a sudden. I lean towards him having AA more likely KK less likely. Either way your hand is just a set minet.
Don't think about that. You must think only for the profit from any hand (in vacuum).
You hand is an easy fold preflop. I mean vs this 4bet from this guy. As played, postflop fold as well.
This is the right answer. Even if he is 4betting you lighter than normal, it's probably not enough to make a huge difference in the long run. Also, he's going to win even more since you'll be put into awkward spots OOP and could outplay you post flop
