I am picking poker up again after a 3 months break and have been trouble with bet sizing on some hands that I plan to post.
In this hand it's around 1am on a Friday night. Hero has a beer and $500. Hero has at least 100 hours played with villain 1. Villain 1 is a mid 40's fish who has Hero covered. He's a reg and can play aggressively and make big bluffs at times. Normally it's not the right times. He also has a history of calling (me) down light. Hero also has a history of calling villain down light. Villain 2, MAWG, has $250 and is unknown.
Villain 1 limps UTG
Villain 2 limps in MP
Hero raises to $20 in MP with 9♣ 9♦
Blinds fold, both villains call.
5♣ 6♦ 9♥ rainbow board.
Villains check to Hero, who checks behind.
5♠ , completing the rainbow.
Villain 1 bets $50
Villain 2 folds
Hero raises to $150.
I will wait for some discussion before posting my thoughts. I don't like how I played the hand.
