Hey guys, Back after a hiatus from poker. I just played a live session for the first time in a while and think I could have played this band differently.
Villain is new to the table but seems to be aggro. I have about $230. He has me covered. Playing 1/3.
Hero has Ad6d in the BB. Villain in MP makes it $15. One call. I call. (Maybe a little loose of a call.)
Pot $45. Flop 622. Checked around.
Turn 6. I check. Villain bets $30. Fold. I raise to $75. Villain calls.
Pot is now $195 and I have about $140 left in my stack.
River is an A.
I just shipped it because it seemed like the obvious thing to do with my stack size and after a CR on the turn. However, in retrospect I think maybe I could have gone for another CR. His line has a lot of AK, AQ kinda hands in it. If I push it’s obvious I’m not afraid of the A so it sort of telegraphs I have a 2 or 6 (also I’m in the blind). However, if I check then it looks maybe like I bluffed the turn or even that I have something like 77-99 and now I fear he caught me.
Do I have a better chance of getting him to bet after my check than to call after my shove? Or maybe I should have bet but not a shove?
