2/3nl live, $300 max, Friday night
Hero has moved over to this game from Omaha/8 about 15 minutes prior. Little to no history with any of the players at this table. Likely have a slightly “winning” image due to winning two hands so far: 1 when my opponent folded, and the other showing down a winner.
Villian, late 30s white male. Seems like a standard rec player with nice work clothes and a very expensive watch. When I first arrived at the table villain opened UTG to $15 and showed down QQ.
Villian ($430) opens UTG to $12, btn calls, hero ($275) 3 bets to $50 from the BB with Th6c, villain snap calls, btn folds.
Hero leads for $70 with pair+SFD, villain ships it all in after about 5-10 seconds. Pot is $405 and it is $155 to call (all in).
Hero? What range are we putting him on here? Does he always have a flush or can he have 8h8x, AhTx, Ah9x, any AhXx, KhXx, or a set?
Most of the reason behind my 3bet pre was that I was confident in villian’s bet sizing tell of opening larger with premiums and smaller with medium-strong hands. Even though the difference in his opening raises was only 1BB, I think the $12 open gave away some info on his hand.
