1/3 uncapped at Harrah’s New Orleans - looser game that plays bigger than 1/3. V1 is a loose/passive female player and V2 is an unknown middle aged Asian guy who just sat down. I cover both.
V1 ($1000) limps in MP and I iso-raise to $20 from the CO with J♣ T♣. V2 ($500) flats on BTN. Blinds fold. Pot = $64
Flop: 9♠ 8♠ 3♦
V1 checks, I bet $30, V2 calls, V1 folds. Pot = $124
I bet $80, V2 calls rather quickly. Pot = $284
What is my play? Check, or barrel, how much and why?
I really have no read on V2 other than he called fairly quickly on the turn. Took a normal amount of time on the flop. Sometimes I struggle in these spots vs a complete unknown.
I’m also interested on thoughts on my bet sizing on the flop and turn. Been experimenting with smaller flop sizing lately (1/2 pot or less) and not quite used to it and how it should affect my turn sizing when I’m not sure if I’m up against a drawing hand or a stronger made hand like QQ or a 9.
