Ever since I've been listening to CLP podcasts, Bart has driven home the point that once a fishy player raises, he ain't folding. I was reminded of the truth of this while playing recently in Sydney, Australia.
Playing 2/3 (max buyin $500) have about $1,100. Villain on right (fishy) has about the same stack.
I raise UTG to 15 with 3♦ 3♥. Three callers including V in bb.
Flop 3♠ 5♦ 8♦ V in bb donk bets 30. I raise to 90. Only he calls, so HU to turn with $240 in the pot.
Turn 3♣ (just quads, that's all). He checks, I bet $40 (lol), he gives me the death stare through his sunnies and makes it $140. Man I thinking this guy has a hand, so I want to keep juicing the pot, with possibly getting enough in there now, so I can jam river. I make it $310. He tanks, tells me he thinks I'm bluffing and then shoves all in. Yes I call....
River A♣. No kid he does the fist pump and slams down two pair A8.
Nice tip - thanks Bart!
