Info on V:
V: Reg who plays 3-4 times a week both 2/3 cash and the nightly tourneys. Seems to play like an average reg, maybe a bit of a station. V busted from tonight's tournament and sat down about 30min ago with $500. He played one significant pot so far where he called down 3 medium sized barrels vs another reg on J62r2T with 99. H has tight and winning image.
$2/$3 Tuesday night casino game, $600 cap buy-in, 9-handed,
H ($800 effective) Q♥
V flat BTN,
H $20, V quick $40, H call,
H x, V $85 pretty quickly, H x-c,
H x, V $200 pretty quickly, H ?
- Spades bricked out
- 98 completed a straight on the river
- V can rep most (or all) KJ & AJ combos with the given line.
- H blocks KQo and Qh9h (idk if V flats Q9o)
- This hand is near the top of my range in this spot, but given hand equivalency / relative hand strength it's pretty much just a bluff catcher.
Should H bluff-catch here with AJ and KJ only? If you're calling, what's the best bluff-catchers here? JX, AA/KK (if you don't 3b! flop), what else? If you think V has enough bluffs to call at the given price are you calling with anything that has enough showdown value to beat busted spades?
Does the 7 make a difference to your call/fold decision? What if river was a total brick like an offsuit 2, 3, 5, or 6?
Thanks for your help!
