hott_estelle:???


Guppsala (3rd raiser) has been very loose in both preflop and post flop action. He has been raising hands like J4 suited preflop, and he has also been calling down with mid pairs, ect. The 2nd reraiser has been short stacked, and bought in short stacked a couple times. He buys in for like $10, and then busted twice, and has bought in for about $10 again here. So, he's either a really unlucky tight player, or just a really bad tight player, also low on cash.

I thought preflop, it was an obv. call. Nothing to it. Now post flop, what do we do here?? Do we check fearing the AA or KK, or do we bet out not wanting to give a free card to an AK, flush draw, or possibly AQ by a stretch?? Or do we even check here hoping to induce a bet from the loose player, and with plans to push all-in over the top when he does??

i check call and reassess on the turn. he -was- very maniacal (as you can tell, i was there too) and his raise/3bet means little.

Sorry, missed the read. Against a normal tight player I wouldn't be too comfortable in this spot. But if he's that loose why not re-raise pre-flop then shove this flop?

If he's aggressive on the flop as well, you could check-raise.

Have you seen him reraise strongly preflop before?

Coz even if hes maniacal about open raising or calling raises preflop, a rereraise can still mean a lot of strength.

If ive seen him do it before then i check-shove or bet out at that flop. If not id rather slow down.

I did check, with plans to check-raise the flop. He checked behind me. Now on the turn what do we do? I would doubt a normal-straight forward player would ever check the flop there with AA or KK, but can't put anything past this guy right? Do we check, bet out, and if we bet out how much do we bet? If we bet, do we value bet here, or bet big still trying to push out possibly flush draws or an AK or AQ??

his check worries me. i dont exactly remember the hand, but he was pretty maniacal which would lead me to believe his check signifies a strong hand here, as he was betting out tons of air hands in the past. possible he has any pair TT+ i'd say. check and call a bet here

Interesting.

Me personally.

I would have gone allin preflop. ( based on your comments )

I have QQ, and committing $10 against a player who wants to lose his money regularly and prepared to risk my whole stack to a player I know is playing like a maniac with QQ preflop. ( especially as he's likely to be playing marginal hand. )

You may think this has little skill - well true - but ultimatley I think your chances are better than 50% preflop against big stack. I am not worried about small stack.

Fortune favours the brave - I have just edited as I have read the result. I would do the same again ( same players same position ) regardless of the result in this hand. .

My opinion.
