Venue: Lucky Chances Casino near wonderful San Francisco (Where the Giants won the world series last year)
Limit: 3/5 NL
Effective Stacks: $500
Game Dynamics: Slow and somewhat nitty game with more room for creativity and aggression. I think some of the players are jealous of my style (My overall swagger not my poker strategy).
V1 Utg+1: Ginger recreational player with no style. He thinks he is funny but is mediocre at best. Little creativity or ingenuity in his humour.
V2 Button: Recreational player in his 40's. Loose preflop and somewhat of a station postflop. He seems like a nice person who I could get a Starbucks with.
Hero MP1: Young, attractive and ambitous Mexican wearing sick skate clothes. He's playing his first session after a nice holiday break spent binge drinking, smoking, eating, macking and sleeping.
Preflop: V1 Utg+1 raises to $15 in quick tempo, folds to hero MP+1 who raises QdQc to $45, folds to V2 on button who calls and V1 calls.
Flop ($138): 4c5h9c. V1 checks, Hero bets $80, V2 calls quickly and V1 calls quickly.
Turn ($378) 4c5h9cKd. V1 checks, Hero? We have $375 behind. We also have the Qc as an AQcc, KQcc, JQcc and Q10cc blocker.
1) Should we bet and is the only bet size AI?
2) If this checks thru can we value bet any rivers? If so, what is your sizing?
Thank you for your time, love and support.
