Friend playing 1/2. I thought this was an interesting hand.
ES $110 vs main V. There is a convention in town so all of the players at the table are bad.
MP and HJ limp, Hero CO raises $15 Q♠ Q♦ BUT calls, MP calls, HJ folds.
$45 FLOP K T 4 :r: - MP bets $10, Hero raises $30, BUT folds, MP calls.
Hero suspected highly that MP has a draw. He raised to get a better feel on the player behind. He didnt want to be in a spot where someone calls with a GS and he isn't sure what to do OTT. But it is also possible V has a King here donk betting his TPMK for information. How often we don't know.
My thinking is that there are some Kings he bets and the combos of Kings that he bets for information outweigh greatly QJ.
$105 TURN 3 :r: - MP checks, Hero checks
$105 RIVER 9 :r: - MP jams his $65 in the middle.
Barring physical reads throughout the hand and the possibility our V might be bluffing something else. Should we call getting 2.5:1 holding 2 blockers to QJ
Should we play this hand differently from the flop?
