I was just in a strange spot where I didn't know what to do.
A player that normally raises to $35 with good hands, raises to $35. Stacks are about $400+I call oop with 88.
Flop is K 9 3
I check and he checks. Now this check is very polarizing to me. Base upon history he would cBet a lot here. Even QQ to TT. Not 100% but I discount theses hands. He either has KK, 99 or a discounted AK. He also has a lot of misses with AJs type hands.
Turn is 8. Giving me set. Also puts out BDFD.
I bet $55 as I want to get value for a lot of those discounted hands, some draws he picks up and some calls because of my image. He calls.
River is an Ace. I think some of his range hits this. I bet $135 and he calls. I show and win.
Here is the thought. When I bet I saw he had about $200 left. I was worried about the slow played some but I realized due to sizing I really couldn't bet fold here. He could have picked up 2p and thought he was good. AK and A9 were possible although discounted. It just seem like I didn't have any clear actions.
Checking left a ton of money on the table. Betting snap call seems like a natural but he was a guy to slow play.
Anyhow it seem an interesting spot. With theses stacks I am just going broke, but if we were deeper? It just seem like a muddled spot.
