Villain in this hand is reg or local pro, regularly playing at 5/5 and 5/10, and is sitting with ~$1500. Very LAG. VPIP has to be close to 75% in this game, essentially opening every time folded to in any position, calling most opens, or over-limping late positions. Post flop continues aggressively. He is three to my right at an 8 handed table.
Hero is UTG, $185 effective 6♥
open to $12 (standard open at this table is $10-15)
Two field callers, V calls on the BU.
Flop ($51) 10♦
Hero cbet $15, folds to V raises to $50. Hero call.
Turn ($151) 4♦
Hero jams, V snaps.
V shows A♦ 5♥
Hero goes home.
My thoughts on the play. I would usually limp here or fold pre, but it was getting late, I had been fairly card dead and the few good hands I've had had been beat by garbage, so I had opened my EP range a bit.
On flop, felt this was a good board for my UTG range to cbet. Called as I think V is making a lot of exploitative raises from his spot versus small stacks, and would have just flatted a bare 10. I also think he would have 3! pre w/ 99+. So, maybe he has me beat with 88, 55, 22, but not likely. I could see him raising middle pair or something like A3/A4 even. Considered 3bet. Thoughts on that?
I jammed turn thinking essentially what turned out to be true, that V likely didn't have a 10 or I think he just calls the flop, and didn't make the flush as I think he either flats or put me all in on the flop with 2 diamonds in his hand.
Results oriented, he sucked out, but interested in the line in general.
I think getting a little antsy and raising pre obviously was the beginning of the end.
Had I not set myself up to rep a stronger hand against the board, I could have easily check/folded the flop and/or turn.
