From Sunday night in high stakes room at the Bike. V1 is Chris who used to play on LATB all the time last year. Pretty aggressive Preflop.

Bicycle Casino.. $10/20/40. $20k effective..

Hero opens button to $130, Q 8 Straddle (young aggro) calls.

FLOP: 9 5 3 Check, Hero bets $130, V1 raise to $500, Hero calls.

TURN: 6 V1 bets $1100 Hero calls.

RIVER: 4 V1 checks. Hero?

    Despite the diamond blockers, I think most of V's c/r range otf will consist of fds. His value range looks pretty narrow here. (55 and 33 mostly. I dont think there are too many 2 pair combos here)

    Since we are at the bottom of our call range for the flop raise and turn bet and we have no sdv, I think we should bet river after checked to. Because I believe V's range has a small amount of value and I doubt we are pushing him off of a set anyways, I dont think we need to bet big. I'd go 1200 to make it look like value.

    Well you made it this far, time to go polar for 4700 or fold.

    Do or do not, there is no try. Yoda

    PS. I don't want to imply that's my move. Me? I probably pee and my pants and call mom crying.

    interesting hand. the villain is litterally Hyper crazy aggro. Im going to assume he still plays like this.

    I know chris X/R range is very wide here. Also that ur BTN vs Straddle amplifies this even more.
    Since your steal and perceived range is sooo wide here.

    As played would be inclined to fire here. Since we have no SDV value.
    Also we can credible represent an over pair, and some higher 2 pairs.
    We have some 7's in our range such a K7-A7dd. Also so random A2DD, 32dd, 42dd.

    Im saying chris has such a wide range he could have some strong hands and some bad hands.
    Betting here you can decently get credit for value hands such as straights, over pair, and sets. ( Assuming you have a good solid image)
    I would probably bet like 1/3-40%. gives a good price on a bluff and makes it look value too.

    I checked behind.. although it retrospect I think this is a mistake. I do have a fair amount of 7s here that I can credibly represent. I was pleased when he said "Jack high" and I took down the pot

    seems like this is a spot for chris to turn his hand into a bluff catcher. i would htink he would bet his made hands and misses since his range has more made hand combos. I don't hate checking on your part since it feels like he is turning his hand into a bluff catcher
