A7 seems to be my hand of the week....
2/5 game with effective stacks of 1150 (mine). I am in hour 4 of the session and I def. have a very tight, aggressive profile along with being up 650. I've been relatively card dead and except for a couple big hands, haven't done much. I've had a few speculative hands haven't gotten there on the flop, so I am sure I'm perceived as fit/fold. Villain has been at the table the entire time and thankfully, due to a quite unpleasant body odor, just moved from my immediate left to across the table. He has hit several huge draws that he wasn't receiving the proper price for a call and I've watched him 3bet only a handful of times.
One limper to me in the co with A7 offsuit without a diamond. I raise to 25 and V in the BB calls and the limper folds. Heads up.
Flop ($51 post rake) A64 all diamonds. V checks to me and I bet 35. V calls. At this point I am putting him on either weak A with a diamond or smallish PP with a diamond. I'm not in love with my kicker, but I think he would have raised had he hit the flop (unless he flopped the flush) due to their being plenty of cards that ruin his hand.
Turn ($121) 3h . Villain checks to me and I bet 70 with the intention of folding to a raise. V calls.
River ($261) 9h. Villain checks and I take a moment to think. I ultimately flip my cards over and he looks confused, but mucks. I thought about bet/folding the river here for thin value but with the opportunity to close the action, I didn't want to reopen to a bluff that I really couldn't call. I don't know that I get called by worse here. Playing scared? Proper play?
