Sent this hand into Bart, and, it didn't make it into the show... So thought I would post it here for some comments. I will edit out the results and action...
I was playing well and making pretty good reads, playing pretty tight aggressive (table prob views me as somewhat “nitty” because I am playing half the amount of hands as everyone else). Table was pretty loose passive for the most part.
Villain in this hand is a pretty big aggro fish ($380). I moved my seat to get position on two regulars who are loose aggressive “gamblers” (Think like Neil from LATB) and this guy sat down to my left. I had a very good image and I was up $475 ($675) in a 1/2 game. Table was still good as I had position on the two known bad players.
I am dealt AcKd in the SB and CO raises to $8 with $47 more behind. I flat and villain calls.
Flop comes As Tc 5s ($24)
I lead $19, BB flats and Button goes all in for $47 total.
Preflop: I flat the CO raise preflop as he is short and I want to keep his whole range in. He is one of the loose aggro players I moved for but he has lost some hands and is very short stacked. He was bragging about getting stacked for $300 in “15 minutes” at another table. My hand will be well disguised and if an A or K flops I can get his whole stack easily as he will prob rep something anyway. If I miss I can check fold for $8. BB calls to my left and we see the flop 3 handed.
Flop: I lead thinking one of these guys has an Ace and I want to start building a pot. I thought about check raising, but, I thought if I lead it might look weaker and I might get shoved over by button with any ace. I lead 19 into $24. And BB calls. I put him on a flush draw or an ace. He has been pretty agro and I thought he might raise me with anything “big”. CO shoves for $47 total
