$5/$10 NLHE Cash Game at the Commerce
Effective stack: $1,550 (my stack)
I raised to $35, UTG+1 re-raised to $105, everyone folds, action back to me.
Young white guy probably in the 30's. Have not played with him before but I have no reason to believe he will get out of line so I can assign him a fairly tight range (JJ+, AK).
I don't want to have a 4-betting range here because then he can hero fold everything except KK. I plan to under-rep my hand by calling preflop and check call at least 2 bets postflop on most boards to maximize value.
Flop: Qd Td 3h
Check - check
Weird! He checked really quickly too.
Turn: 8c Pot is $215
I bet $150 for value. He thought for a few moments, and slam down a big raise to $525.
I tanked for a minute or two and then I decided to fold.
Instead of asking what he had, I asked him if he doesn't want to see the river. He said he had a big hand.
Based on this, I can be fairly confident he checked set of Queens. But should I 4-bet big preflop to something like $350 or $400 with AA?
