Nothing too exciting, just want to hear if/why I should play each street differently.
Playing live cash £1/2 at The Vic in London today.
I am the effective stack at £270. Main villain (no info or history) is reg in his 60s, smartly dressed etc etc....
Games only been playing 30 mins or so but at this time of day it's full of regs, typically older guys in their 50s+.
UTG opens to £8, I call MP1 with A♣️ Q ♥️, 2 players call behind me.
(£25) Flop Q♣️7♣️6♣️
Checks to me, I check with 2 players to act behind me.
Player to my left (field bettor, not pre flop raiser) makes it £20, folds to me, I call.
(£85) Turn 10♣️
I check, villain checks.
(£85) River 6♥️
I lead £35, trying to get paid off by a low/mid club.
Villain raises to £140.
Not the line I would take every time, but early in a session with unknowns tend to try and take a lower variance line, play smaller pots etc until I have an understanding of the table dynamics.
Check on the flop with top pair and nut flush redraw was also questionable, although I crush the board, I'm sure I can still get calls from other clubs and straight draws.
Thanks in Advance
