This was a hand played at the local charitable games. The table was very soft, with 3-bets getting called in 4 or 5 spots. I was running rather poorly and stuck a buy in.
Hero is dealt K
in the BB.
One limper and the button raises to $10. SB folds, I call in the BB and the limper folds.
Hero checks in the BB, BTN c-bets $15, I call.
Now I'll give me thought process and reasoning. The Button was easily the biggest spot at the table so when I left to get more chips I chose my seat to have position on him. He's been around a long time but still doesn't seem to understand that in full ring PLO you basically need the nuts or close to it. He's constantly over playing weak flushes. He'll stack off with any set. I've seen him check/call on the river with a straight on a paired board with a flush possible. So my overall read was that he was your typical LP, but at the moment was playing a little tighter I think because he was already stuck a couple BI's.
Now when he c-bets this flop I think I'm ahead a lot of the time. I think HU with him having position he is capable of bluffing with air, but I'd say most of the time he has some equity. He could have a K also but have me out kicked. He could have just a bare flush draw. But he could also have 2 pair since he's the type that play any 4 double suited. I call.
I make 2 pair and this is exactly the situation that I was hoping for. Now if I don't improve I'm likely check/folding since I don't think he's going to bluff the turn that often. But if I make 2 pair I think I'm ahead a lot. He's the type, especially on this board that has no possible straights or flushes, that will stack off with a weaker 2 pair here. I think he'll also continue with a lot of hands that lose a lot of equity on the turn like A
AX or Q
Thoughts? Is a check/raise GII too wreckless? Am I discounting his range too much? Am I being overly optimistic in calling the flop to either re-evaluate or make 2 pair to GII? ALl comments and criticism welcome. Thanks
