2/5 NLH. There is a fair amount of straddling on the button going on. The game has a 500$ cap with a 100% rebuy so the game is playing larger than typical 2/5... open raises often in the 30-50$ range regardless if the button is straddling.
Hand begins with UTG(300$) short stack opening to 25$( pot not straddled.) called by V1(2500$) in UTG1, V2(600$) in LJ calls, button calls. Hero(900$) in the BB with AcQs. I call (?)
I check(?) and entire table checks through.
Turn (120$) comes 4h
I bet 75$, UTG calls V1 calls, and V2 raises to 250 (225 back)$ Button folds
back on Hero?
Hero has a TAGish image and has played with most of the table at some length. Bought in for 1k and topped off another 1k. Got into a pot earlier with V1 where V1 donked into Hero's top pair for two streets and V1 binked 2P on the river.
V1 is a 50s typical rec regular. Doesn't play super terrible poker but does limp call and play too many hands overall, but does have a fold button.
V2 is 50s Asian guy, wears headphones and watches phone a lot. Tighter player but overall plays pretty solid poker and can be aggressive. Has been known to spew money at times and once in a while shoes down some WTF hands and is capable of bluffing. He bought into the table shorter than everyone else. Likes to make big bets and raises and usually bullies 1/2 tables with large bet sizes.
First point? Should I be 3 betting this hand pre? Im OOP and I'm doubtful the raise will thin the field down seeing how the table is a bit splashy, and with 2 shorter stacks I may get jammed on. I elected to just flat getting great odds and see a flop.
Second point? Once I smash relatively safe flop , should I just be leading out here or looking to C/R? I typically check to the PFR and usually dont donk bet.
Third point? Do I just Jam myself? I range V2 to easily have 88,44,AhXh, combos of A8(including Ah8h) or Q8 and even chopping with AQ... Doing well against this range and would like to GII with V2, do I just flat here and invite the UTG and V1 in or just raise AI myself? I dont put V1 on anything super strong and expect him to have Top pair here most of the time. Not many draws besides the backdoor hearts.
