Hey guys I got in this spot today and wanted some advice on how to avoid/do better in the future.
I play in a very loose passive 1/3 game (Initial raise is $15 followed by 3-4 callers typically)
I was in the BB with J9 spades
UTG raises $15, followed by 4 callers so pot is $60 and I complete making it $75. I am $300 deep but UTG raiser has $250 or so.
Flop comes 982 two spades.
Here is where it gets awkward...because of the 4 callers plus my call the pot is so big that the UTG raiser who usually has a big pair or big Ace here bets half to 2/3 pot and the bet is $50 into $75
So pot is $125 and he has $175-$185 left
So I ripped it in and missed but my question has to do more with 100 BB cap games and implied odds etc...
Should we maybe think about not defending with suites connectors or speculative hands in a loose passive 1/3 game because of these issues even though we get insane odds pre flop?
Tl, dr: fold pre
