I'm trying to think of some combo draws villain can have here but interestingly I realized he can't have any pair and a FD here since I have in my hand. BB's range is wide so he can have hands like T5,J5,JT but I am heavily blocking hands with a Jack. What types of hands does villain re-raise me on the flop with? what about when he calls my flop 3-bet?
I guess I would give his value range possibly AJ,KJ, maybe QJ is stretching it, then we have our two pairs and 55 for a set.
His bluffs, if he has any in his range here would be mostly FD's and KQ I think.
What do you think about the flop play? would you have 3-bet the flop? bet smaller? When villain calls the bet and we head to the turn I am thinking he has at least AJ, two-pair, 55 or some type of KQ with a spade? On the turn what would your play be? I felt like I missed value by betting so large here. If we put villains range on sets/two pairs/ AJ/ and good FD's should we be betting this turn? with the range I gave him he has 55% flushes and the equity of our hand is 54%
I like to think vs an unknown villain I normally call the smallish check/raise and look to raise villain's likely turn bet on safe cards. If the flush or some straights come in on the turn I may elect to call down and reassess the river. I don't think that 3betting the flop is bad either and may even be the better option. I look forward to hearing what others have to say.
Do you use any sort of HUD while you play? I just ask because I feel like it would help you tremendously in getting a gauge on how others are playing. It may also help people give a little more focused advice.
I like fastflaying here, especially since its a wet board, and you are deep. Making it a 2-street hand really punish his draws.
Not loving to see another spade here, so I lean towards checking back. Its not, that he always has a flush, but its a scarecard to non-flushes, so you are probably not getting called by any hands worse than yours other than a dominated set. Jamming do deny some equity to draws though, so its not terrible.
re: Poker & $2 NLHE 6-max: JJ, flop a set, get re-raised on the flop
On the flop, BB raises your cbet in a multiplayer pot, and I think he holds a flush draw or a straight draw.In the NL2 level, if he is 55 or T5, I want to villian or directly hit allin.
Therefore, the 3s on the turn is good for the opponent's range, and I tend to check back.
In such a wet board on the flop, 3bet top set should be a good decision.
