I cover the two villains.
Fairly loose average aggression game. Villain is passive pre-flop as evidence by observing him limp calling a raise with KQ♦ in MP, check calling an Kxx monotone ♦ flop, but then betting calling a raise on the turn against PFR who flopped a flush, but a ♦ river made KQ the winner.
Pre-flop ($8 - 9 players) - UTG limps, button limps I'm in BB with A♠ K♣ and raise to $30, both limpers call.
Flop ($87 after drop - 9 players): A♣ Q♦ J♥. I opt to check, UTG checks, button bets $100.
What is your interpretation of his action and response if he has:
(a) $220 remaining in his stack?
(b) $1000 remaining in his stack?
