$1/$3, $300 cap.
Villain is a rec player I have seen just a few times before. Probably a losing player but not a total fish.
Hero has a good image as I have been getting hit with the deck & have shown down some good hands. However, the villain in this hand has only been at the table for a couple orbits.
Preflop: I open to $12 in the LJ w/ T♠ 8♠ . Villain calls in the CO w/ a $325 stack. I have him covered. Both blinds call. We are 4 handed. Pot is $40
Flop: J♥ 9♦ 6♠ giving me an open ended straight draw and a back door flush draw. The blinds check. Would you bet or check here?
I decided to c-bet $25 although I think it's a close decision. I have a good image, good draw & am the preflop aggressor but there are 3 opponents in the hand.
The CO raises to $75. The blinds fold & it is back to me. What's your play here & why?
I decided to call as I'm getting nearly 3:1 on the call. I think the CO must have a strong hand & I believe I can stack him if I hit my hand. He has about $235 left in his stack. Pot is $190 after I call.
Turn: 7♦ , giving me the nuts. What's your play here & why?
