edited November -1 in NLHE Strategy Discussion
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.

Bart Hanson 4 Life.

Your boi,

    I think we can keep betting for value, getting called by 9s and draws. I think with these player types (typical fish donks), no one will raise with worse than a K, and they will continue to call with all draws and 9s. Bet smaller though, because the K may look scary to them, if they think you would c-bet with AK. I'd bet like $125 or so, and be comfortable to fold to a raise. These guys aren't getting fancy with you, they are stationey donkeys. You look intimidating to them, with yo style and all, and therefore you won't be getting played back at with worse than QQ.

    Good luck!

    Nice prose. I too would bet the turn. Tough to bet for value on the river and get called by a busted draw. Bet fold Hanson style.
  • The only reason why I would check this through on the turn is to get future value on the river. However, the K hits our range so hard, that I rarely think that your opponents will call you on the river with a 9 or pocket pair. I would just keep betting and probably check-fold/check call river depending on villain and card.

    Do you agree with the $125 sizing or do you think we can go bigger?

    Since this card hits our range so hard I think $125 is going to fold pretty much every pair except 1010 or JJ specifically.

    What about betting $250?

    Thank you! I've been trying to remember where San Francisco is, and your clue helped me out a lot!

    I probably typically bet bigger on this flop for a couple reasons: more value from draws/worse made hands, don't have to second guess your read if you get played back at after betting small-ish.

    Anyway , as played I probably do bet small-ish on the turn and fold to a raise. In the $150 range.

    I want to bet an amount for draws to call me. It really depends on the player and game flow of your table. You don't want to bet an amount where only better will call and weaker will fold.
