I was playing at my local casino 3 5 deep stack game ( buy in is 500 - 1500 so it is a really good game to get deep with the fishes) last night and come across with a weird spot that i don;t know if my decision and thought process was corrected.
I'm a pretty LAG player, and the table have begin to noticed the hands that the hands i showed down on the river aren't class 1A cards, so i don;t have a really good image heading into the hand. On this hand, i was playing at the button with a fishy player limping in at UTG. Everyone folded behind and i raise for value to 25 with AKcc. small blind super nit ( like robo cop whom looks action but play tight) he called, big blind call, and limper called. I'm just loving life at this point.
with $100 in the pot
Qh 7h 6c
Everyone checked to the raiser, and i decided to check behind in a 4 handed pot.
Qh 7h 6c Kh
Small blind now leads out for 85. big blind and limper folded, and i called with AKcc. Thinking i might still have the best hand and in position. NOW the pot is $270
Qh 7h 6c Kh Ad
Small blind took a long time And decided to bet 225. And i folded face up my AKcc and the the table was in shocked.
My thought process on the hand.
I have been Cbetting and double barreling turn quit a bit and lost on the river, so my image was not the greatest. On a Qh 7h 6c board, i thought it was too draw heavy, too many players in the pot, and i have a bad image. I thought Cbetting was just lighting money on fire, so i checked behind.
The King of heart should hit my range when i checked the flop back as the preflop raiser, but it also completes the flush. When the small blind lead out when the King hits, i didn;t think he was bluffing. But i had position and i can still play this hand profitably so i called. Remember i said he was a nit if the river comes a four flush i think i can get him off on everything but the second nut, plus i can still have the best hand and go for thin value at the river.
Base on my read on the villain. He is a pretty straight forward player when he bet big he has it. i was going to call, raise, or flop depending on his bet size. Plus i played the hand on turned like i had the A of heart in my hand. When the river comes A, even the worst player might get scared and check. when he bet 225 i thought he had a pretty strong hand like a make flush on the turn and called with two pair against this player was pretty bad.
The only hand i can bet is KQ and i can;t see this player betting this much with just a pair A of heart that river top pair nor KQ. So i folded AKcc
But what do you guys think? Should it be a call, raise, or fold?
