Graton Casino (Brad Owen Meetup game on Feb 23. He was not in this table:cool:)

$3/$5 $200 to $1000 buy-in. Effective stack is $950.

Villain on button appears to be pretty laggy. Bluffs a little.

Pre-Flop ($18): Straddle UTG, UTG+1 (seems solid, but definitely raises his fair share of upper value suited one-gappers or connectors) raises to $30, button flats, I am in SB w/ K K and 3! to $130 and only button calls.

Flop ($305): T T 7. I bet $115, button calls quickly.

Turn ($535): 6. I check to pot control and induce pocket pairs to make a mistake to protect their equity, but he checks behind.

River ($535): 3 I bet $250...

How did I do?

    I think I would have sized a little larger pre. You are out of position, against what should be a strong range & it could be perceived as a squeeze.
    I like your flop sizing. Should get calls from lots of worse hands that have little equity vs you.
    Can't decide if I like the turn check or not. Probably very dependent on the villain. Hands like 88, 99, overs with flush draws, or suited connectors with a back door flush draw that floated the flop get a free card but I don't think that is a huge part of his range. I wonder if another small bet would have been better to set up a river shove?
    I think the river sizing kind of depends on your image too. It's a clear bet. The question is how much do you think you can get & how will they perceive your sizing? As played, I think JJ & QQ might call any bet. Missed overs/draws probably won't call anything. That leaves the middle pair type hands. They might hero call you after the turn check. I think your river bet sizing is fine. Nice hand.

    BTN shouldn't have QQ and likely not JJ either, so I think we're looking at PP/Ax. I bet turn again but not a lot, like 185 or so, vs most V's. Vs a bluffy guy checking turn is fine.
