Very weirdly played hand with non-standard bet sizings...
Hero has a lag image. I usually open more often than anybody else at the table, so I'm used to thinking players adjusting by 3betting me wider.
Villain is a somewhat aggro transgender woman. She showed once when she opened 34s UTG and took it down OTF. She 3bet me once to $100 in position when I opened to $20 and got a caller (she got folds around). I have played with her before, and she is a fairly active 3better in general. Also, she does things like make tiny bets in big pots, then smashes turns or rivers. Sometimes floats a bit in spots, etc.
On to the hand...
Effective stacks are about $1150.
Hero opens MP to $20 with TcTs. Two callers. Villain 3bets to $100 in CO. I think she can have various SCs, PPs, suited broadways, AQ+, etc. Folds to hero.
Hero decides to 4bet to $255. I feel like she's going to call me with pretty much her whole range in position, but I feel fine betting a lot of flops and shipping some turns. I could have went a bit larger, but then I'm mostly just folding out the worst of her range, and feel less comfortable when she flats. I could flat the 3bet, but I really hate the idea of getting into passive check/call mode against a wide range, and don't think I can get correct implied odds to set-mine. Thoughts?
Hero?? I feel like this is a weird spot after 4betting. I could bet big and take it down against a lot of her air, but I feel like she's going to try to float or raise a lot of small bets. I don't want to x/f just because there's an ace.
Hero checks. Villain bets $145. Hero x/r to $325. (I decided I could play both AK or AA like this, and just want to fold out her equity or try to better suss out what she has). Villain calls... But I still don't think she necessarily has to have an ace or even a pair or draw. Also, I think she probably would have just jammed over me if she had AK.
After her call I'm planning on just shipping most bricks on the turn now that so much is invested.
Now AJ got there, flush draws got there, and hands like AxQd are probably never folding at this point (if AQ ever was folding)... Hero checks with $570 behind... Villain checks.
I considered jamming, but decide there's still not that many better hands I can get to fold.... Villain bets $315. Can I possibly be ahead here? It just seems really weird after the turn check. Would she actually try to value-bet AQ exactly, or some other random aces that she might show up with?
