Villain 1 ($1000) Playing fairly aggressively. Opening a fair amount preflop. Multiway he'll often check and give up, but if he can get it heads up or if he calls a raise preflop he's been making some weird bluffs and playing aggressively. If he had TP or better I think he'd cbet this flop.
Villain 2 ($325) Somewhat stationy villain. Calls very wide preflop. Does slowplay sometimes. We had a 4 way single raised pot where we were both field players. I lead for almost pot into the PFR on a K83 monotone flop with bottom set. He just called QJss for the second nut flush and then shoved turn for not that big of a bet when the 3 paired (and I made quads). I think he would be himself if he had a set or 2 pair though b/c the PFR checked.
Villain 3 ($800) Straightforward villain. Calls a little light pre, but not very aggro post. When checked in position I think he would be weak kings, maybe 8's or 7's and probably decent draws like big flush draws. Doesn't play back much. I think $45 into $100 demonstrates weakness.
Hero ($1000) Tight image as I haven't got any cards for a while. Haven't made any moves at all. In fact, the only really big hand I had was the quads vs V2.
Villain 1 opens UTG to $25
Villain 2 calls in MP
Villain 3 calls OTB
calls in BB
Hero checks, Villain 1 (PFR) checks, Villain 2 checks, Villain 3 bets $45, hero raises to $145?
Just to clarify, I'm trying to turn tens into a bluff here basically. Tens also has the advantage of having showdown value in case someone calls with the NFD or 7xss.
I really think Villain 3 is going to fold most of the time and unless villain 1 is trapping with a set I think he's folding too (he probably still bets a set on this board). I could just flat, but I don't want to let V3 win with some kind of weak king and I don't want to let V1 decide to get sticky with JJ/QQ or some kind of draw.
Unfortunately . . .
Hero raises to $145, PFR folds, Villain 2 shoves for $305 total, V3 folds. hero?
At this point it's $160 to win 595 which is 3.7-1 so I only need to be good ~21% of the time. It's such a weird play for him to backraise a king here b/c you'd think he'd bet AK or KQ. Would he really shove back KJ or KT? I also don't buy he's slowplaying a set after the PFR raises. So if even a small % of the time he has a hand like the nut flush draw or a combo draw I think I have to call.
Thoughts? Was the setup ok for this play, or would having a shortish stack in the middle make this a less good play?
