I'm an online MTTer that's still a newbie when it comes to playing poker with my pants on.
UTG (900$) = He seems to be a competent player in his early 20's, he talks the poker lingo with his friend sitting next to him. He's been raising quite a bit from upfront in the hour that I've been at the table but doesn't get out of line post flop .
MP (400$) Nitty 25 y/o reg that I've seen before who seems to be playing a rigid range from all positions. He also likes to call with big hands pre. When he puts serious money in post-flop he pretty much always has it.
Hero SB (500$) TAG player in his late 20's, perceived as pretty solid by the other young guys. I have opened maybe 3pots and have yet to 3b a hand.
BB (600$) Bad loose recreational player in his mid 60's that makes a lot of mistakes post.
UTG raises to 25$, MP calls, Hero calls with A
and BB calls
Hero checks, BB checks, UTG checks, MP bets 55$
hero checks, MP bets 85$ and hero ships it for 152$ more
In game I thought he would check back AQ OTT maybe 50% of the time and I thought he mostly had AK and obv some sets but I wasn't convinced he would always be set mining small pp's for 25$ with 80bbs. Should I just 3b pre to 80$ since I'm OOP? and maybe call more often from the BTN. My obsession in keeping the recreational player led me to call in the end.
