Thought this was an interesting hand that relates to the podcast this week on blockers.
2/5, $1,300 effective stacks. Hijack is a middle age Asian guy, reg grinder. SB 20's white guy. No history between them.
MP limps, Hijack raises to $30 with A♠
SB 3! to $130. MP folds, Hijack just calls.
Flop ($270) T♠
SB bets $75, Hijack calls.
Turn ($420) Q♠
SB bets $225, Hijack calls.
River ($870) T♥
SB jams for $870.
Hero is the SB with A♦ K♠
Thought this would be a slightly profitable bluff, depending on how many AQ combos the Hijack calls with. Would have liked to have the A♠ , but on the other hand I block just as many of the Broadway spade combos with the K♠. And if he has the A♠, from an optimal sense he blocks my only obvious bluff, so he should be less likely to bluffcatch. Not that I expect a 2/5 player to be thinking at that level, just thought in hindsight it would be an interesting spot in his position and I would have folded his hand.
