Villain is a clueless tourist. I have not seen him 3bet once in 3 hours at the table. Two headscratchers I observed:
HH1: I open MP to $30 with A♣ K♣, SB calls, V calls in BB with J♣ 6♣ . Flop: Q♣ Q♦ 7♣ . V leads $30, I call. Turn 9♣ . V checks, I bet $100, V calls. River 7♦ goes check/check. Villain said he knew I had a better flush and he would have folded to a large bet on a blank river (??)
HH2: V opens MP1 to $50 with AA, BTN calls, BB calls. Flop: AQJr. V checks, BTN bets $90, V calls. Turn: 3 bringing bdf. V checks, BTN bets $160, V calls. River: 7 completing bdf. Check, check, and V is good with his top set against BTNs QJ. He said that he was nervous about the flush coming in and may have folded to an overbet (which I doubt).
Hero opens 66 UTG for $30 (bottom of my opening range), V flats in CO, BTN flats, SB flats, BB flats.
Flop: A♦ K♣ 2♥ ($150)
My analysis: I don't have many good bluffing candidates on this board, and actually 66 is a decent hand to use as a bluff as it has more equity against a calling range than a hand like 98 with a bdfd. In a vacuum I feel a small range bet cannot be awful on this board. I plan to evaluate the flop action and possibly lay down the hammer with an 80-100% pot sized bet on good turn cards (non A and non K), especially if I get called in 2 spots.
Check, check, Hero bets $50, V calls, fold, fold, fold.
Turn: 6♣ ($250)
Hero bets $175, and V snap raises to $400, Hero calls.
River: 7♥ ($1050)
Hero checks, V bets $300, Hero?
I mainly wanted to get feedback about the flop bet. I know a small range bet is theoretically okay in HU spots, but I don't know how being multiway affects things.
Obviously against a good player, raising here is automatic and we would expect to get calls from AK. But based on Villain's cautious tendencies observed in the HHs, and based on the fact we cannot be sure he never has AA or KK in his flatting range, I wonder if raising OTT or OTR is too thin.
