After some feed back on this $5/5 hand I played.
Haven't played a hand at this table and only sat down. Most players know who I am, know I'm aggressive in spots.
Effective stacks are $700
V is an old rich bloke that I have played many hands with. I generally try avoid bluffing him because he gets sticky with his hands. Won $14k in a tournie the other week when he came 9th. But I have played him today to see what mood he is in.
Utg returns to the table and decides to straddle to $10, 1 caller, V calls mid, 3 others call.I'm in the BB and have 7♥ 7♦ I decided to raise to $65. I think I probably should of made it $80. I will raise all my value hands here because of the dead money. I do think 77 is in front of the fields limping range. V calls and 1 other calls, others fold. His range here should consist of mainly suited hands and all pairs that he didn't want to raise. Suited hands Ax, twenty hands and maybe 10 9.
J♦ 8♦ 5♥
I feel this is an ok board to continue with. I do have some back door straight equity. Suited board texture can hit V calling range and possibly hit a J.
I bet $200 probably slightly to large should of went for $175 ish. V calls, the field player folds.
V either now has a J or a flush draw. I'm not sure I will get him to fold the turn and I'm not continuing if I don't pick up any equity.
I decide to go all in for $435 because I have picked up those straight outs. I think I have a 30% chance of getting him to fold a Jack if he has one, I'm expecting to get called by all flush draws.
I think a bet here is correct to keep telling the story other wise I would be check/folding the turn when V bets.
I'm after feed back on this hand, mistakes and how to improve. Going through some run bad/playing bad atm and I'm trying to work out whether it's more variance or just playing bad.
