Effective stacks 400+- V (LAG) has me covered. 1/2 NL
Villain has been very aggressive, sometimes having it at show down, sometimes having total air, or missed draws...Has me just covered, he's been up and down, lost a few hand recently and is probably down a little for the session. I'm in for 600 (two buy-ins), and have maybe 430 in front of me. Was in a hand earlier with this villain and another player, flopped open ended and flush draw, and bricked on turn (which I bet) and river (which I also bet)....so I may be a little titled re: the main villain.
I'm on Button, folds to V who limps from Lo-Jack, SB & BB are super nitty,
I raise to 13, knowing V has been calling almost any raise less than 20 or so, and he calls.
Flop is pretty good for me...7 9 10 rainbow. V- checks, and there's only 29 in pot..I bet 25, V- calls.
Turn is J...giving me top pair.. XX
River is an A, doesn't complete any backdoor flushes, etc.
There's 89 in pot - rake, and V bets 97......
I tank..he's demonstrated range has been huge, he can certainly have an 8, if another player I'd think maybe 7 8 , something like that...but the over bet feels fishy to me, even the 97...why not 100? I also think the A is a great bluff card.
I did call, and he had 8 4 of diamonds.
Am I good here more than 50% of the time, against this V I think I am, but it still feels spewy, since I admit I only really beat a flopped top pair turned into a bluff
Thoughts are appreciated?
