The morning game at Lion's contained many familiar faces and the action was slow once again. I decided to leave and come back a bit later. By 7pm things were getting silly. A few quick highlights:
- A 6-way AIPF (around 4K total pot), two players had trashy AAXX, one had KQQTs, the other 3 had who knows what.
- Heads up all in on the flop with SPR of 9, KsTs7sKc scoops a 1K pot on Ac4s8d7h3d board
I might have VPIPed five hands today, and I managed to get confused about one of them. The following hand comes from earlier in the afternoon in a must-move game that had just gotten down to 4-handed with me and 3 regulars:
$1 / $3, no straddle this hand, $185 effective stacks.
H BTN 8♥
CO folds, H limps, SB 15, BB call, H call,
SB x, BB 30, H calls, SB check-call,
SB x, BB 100, H ?
I decided to limp (planning to limp-call) rather than open raise out of SPR considerations. In hindsight I think open raising pot is best because it makes it possible to get HU or maybe even steal the blinds (and either seem preferable to playing a 3-way limped pot), and it's especially good with my tight image as I'm less likely to face a 3b!
Given the effective stack size, raising the flop seems reasonable. I'm not sure if flatting or raising is best. At an SPR around 13 or more I definitely would not raise and with an SPR of 3 or less I would raise all in, with SPRs in between I'm not sure.
seems like a straightforward fold.
As always, feedback is much appreciated. Thanks!
