I think this is a pretty standard spot, but I have been on a brutal downswing to start the year and spots that I thought were standard I now find myself questioning. So I apologize in advance if this hand is too straightforward as I am trying to share/review my biggest hands of my sessions to make sure I am still playing optimally and not swaying from solid play as I work my way through it.
This is from a $2/5 game $500 max buy in.
My session started off on a bad note, and I was down a buy in early, but I clawed my way back and was sitting on a $1100 stack for this hand.
The main villain in the hand is a REG who can play pretty loose and has the tendency to call pretty wide. His session has been very swingy and he sits with a stack close to $1600. He seems to enjoy a gamble and I also noticed he rarely folds to 3-bets especially in position.
An example of his play is when he called a $25 EP raise out of the BB with 34o and a $400 stack.
He then check/called a pot sized c-bet on a 2♥ 6♥ T♣
The turn brought the 3♠ and he check/called an over-bet all in from EP for his stack. He hit a 5 for his gutter on the river. During his thought process he verbally stated he thought EP villain had 7h8h or 8h9h (EP ended up having JJ).
In my hand a player in EP opened to $30 off a $800 stack (he has been visibly tilted and this raise was larger than his norm).
Villain called on the BTN.
I am in the SB w/ K ♦ K ♠
I raise to $140. Only Villain on the BTN calls.
Flop ($310) = Q ♥ 2 ♦ 6♦
I c-bet on the smaller side to $125.
I wanted to keep in his marginal hands, maybe induce a raise, and my plan was to go three streets.
Turn ($560) = 9 ♦
I bet $300 leaving around $525 behind. He calls.
River ($1100) = 4♠
I jam for $525.
Any feedback as played?
