I played in a pretty juicy 2/5 100-300 blind game tonight. Mostly bad players and of course me
.. So the set up is there is an asian kid who seems to like playing most suited connecting cards.. He has built his stack to about 700 when this hand comes up. I have him covered and we are heads up. Yet again I get a big pocket pair utg.. this time its queens and I raise to 20 and he calls on the button. both blinds fold. pot 47-rake =42
Flop comes 9 7 3 two spades.. I bet 35 he min raises to 70.. I think he probably has 9x maybe 9T, J9, 98 or maybe A9 suited.. min raise on a wet board. In past hands he just keeps barreling so I see no need to not let him continue. pot now has 180.
Turn is a 6 h.. I check he bets 100.. I call pretty quickly.. pot now has 380 and he has about 400 left...
River is an os T pretty much a gross river.. makes many 9x hands he could have .. I check and hope he just checks behind but he shoves.. lol.. I wish I had 88.. I laugh and just fold... later when he was racking up he asked me what I had .. I said " what did you have" he has top two pair. I said why did you shove the river? Did you see the 4 card straight? I don;t think he was even trying to put me on a hand. and when I told him I had QQ I think he almost didn;t believe me.. "Why didn't you reraise me on the flop" he said. Why sir I put you on a 9 and I want you to value own yourself to the river. why oh why would I raise you and let you fold your junk hand.. *sigh*
Do you like this line with a player who will keep betting their own hand almost regardless of what you have because they assume you would let them know their hand is no good by raising? I have been making a fair amount lately letting players do this and want to get y'alls opinion.
