Live $1/$2 - $300 cap - Hollywood STL
$160 effective, as hero literally had chips in pocket to top up to $250.
Nothing significant read-wise other than UTG2 is "forgettable" but not a donating fish....not one you are just itching to get in pots with, but not at all intimidating. Has shown ability to be a little aggro, but we haven't seen anything substandard (like semi-bluffing a draw oop) shown down.....though he feels possibly capable of such play. HJ has been aggro early in session, but has gone a little silent last few orbits. Aggro here meaning opening pots and isolating a couple of limpers here and there. Again, nothing of significance shown down outside of opening pot a little "too frequently" making Hero want to find a spot or two to legitimately 3bet IP.
UTG2 opens to $16 (standard has been $12-$15....this is a bit heavy for what was getting same job done). Folds to HJ who flats. Hero sits in CO with K♥ T♥ and chooses to flat knowing it's the bottom of his range and would easily be folded if even in MP himself. Didn't squeeze due to stack sizes and potential SPR with dominated holding vs possible utg2 range. Felt close between flat and fold.
Flop - $50ish - T♦ 8♣ 7♣ - UTG checks, HJ checks, Hero bets $40. UTG raises to $110 total, HJ folds, Hero has about $40 left after call and feels this is fold/jam only. Calling feels pointless.
