$195 SB loose passive trying to recoup some of tonights lossesV2-
$360 BB loose aggressive/passive aggression seems to go through the roof when less that $200 behind. Seems to play just about any draw as if he honestly thought J high flush could be the nutz. First time playing Tahoe
Hero-$600 UTG/Straddle I've opened up my game as the table has been getting shorter and am playing most of my hands in position and very aggressively. I really have no clue how to play this form of poker.Game:
Dealer's choice mixed game. This round is Tahoe. 3 hole card flop/turn/river hi/lo game where only the button and SB have much experience, they still don't have any clue of it's adjustments either. You may use 0,1,or 2 of your cards. It's also a split pot game which means it's an uncapped $2/$5 game with max single bet/raise of up to $50, but no other cap involved. It's 3am, and we're down to 4 players, everyone else is there trying to "catch up" (I pulled out $500 earlier when switching tables)Pre:
Hero $10 straddle (K
3 flats, Hero raise to $60
Button Folds,SB calls,
BB repops to $110
Hero Calls, SB Calls
I choose to straddle because the guy on the button is tight passive and so I usually have the effective last action. I call the reraise because I have what I think is a very strong high only hand and I want to see the flop in position.Flop:$335
SB checks BB raise to $50, Hero raise to $100*
SB all in for $85 BB repops to $150 telling hero he has the 9K for a straight. (pot $670/$50 to call) Hero calls
I raised to $100 because OESD+2pair+backdoor clubs seems strong but don't I don't want to be passive when I know SB is pot committed and would raise $35 AI if I flat.
comments for every aspect of this hand would be nice.
