Hawaiian Gardens $5/$5 NLHE cash game. Original max buy-in is only $600 but we've been playing 7 hours and a lot of the stacks were extremely deep.
For this hand, the effective stack was about $1300 from my villain and I have him covered.
Villain is a young Asian guy who I've seen check raise 4 times already out of the 8-10 hands he plays on the flop as a preflop caller.
Hand: Ah Jh
There was a $10 straddle from the villain. UTG raised to $30. I am MP1 in a full-ring game with 9 players. I called. Straddle also called. Everyone else folds. Pot is 3-way at $100.
Flop: Jc 4c 2s
Villain checked from the straddle. UTG player checked. I bet $40. Villain raised to $120. UTG player folds. I call.
Analysis: UTG player is a young Asian woman playing fairly solid. When she checked, it is very likely she had something like AQ, AK, 99, or TT. I am definitely betting for value. When my villain check raise in this spot, he could have a very wide range of bluffs and very few value hands. Even if he is calling with 42s, that's only 9 combos of value hands. On the other hand, he has a LOT of flush draws and some straight draws and gutshots like A5s and A3s. Clear call.
Villain bets $250. I call.
Analysis: Definitely a blank card to me. If I was ahead on the flop, I should be ahead on this turn card.
Villain bets $450. Hero should...
I am not sure whether my villain will bluff in this spot very often, given this run out. However, the 2h is actually good for me because I know my villain has very few value hands. 3 combos of 44, 1 combo of Ac2c, and 1 combo of 22 for quads. What do you think?
