This game is a semi-legal, raked game in a midwestern city. 3 players in the hand and knowledge of each player is necessary. Cord is a horrible, loose cannon of a player who seems to always lose the max. Debra is a 65 year old nice, rich lady who plays for the social aspects and usually plays bad but has bouts of playing well. Roy is an older gentlemen who plays tight and very solid. Effective stacks between Debra and Roy are $2k.
Debra from MP raises to 15, Roy calls from the CO and Cord does from the SB. Flop is 8h7s3h. Cord leads for $110, Debra calls, and Roy raises to $300. Cord quickly folds and now Debra shoves her stack in. Roy thinks for a minute or two and folds 33 face up. Debra shows him 88. Someone at the table admonished Debra for shoving making Roy's decision easy.
This hand occurred last night and a friend and I discussed this hand for twenty minutes today. First, Debra is not good enough to know Roy is never raising in position with any draw against those two villains. Secondly, Roy's fold is actually questionable as Debra's hand range is so wide. I have seen her show any over pair to the board, two pair, and sets in these spots. I do not remember her opening suited connectors very often from early position.
Thought's on this hand?
Our opinion is Debra should have raised the flop to isolate Cord and Roy would have probably 3 bet.
