2/5 MD Live!
V (1300) CO: Mid to late thirties guy who has been talking some poker strat, not totally clueless. Pretty splashy and loose pre flop. Was recently opening extremely wide ip, but has slowed down the last hour or so and started over limping some of his more speculative hands like Axs, suited gappers ect, but still imagine he is opening a decently wide range ip. Have seen him essentially min raise for value in spots where normally people are just calling, such as min raising with A9 on a 9xx board facing a bet from a field player (can't remember if this was a limped pot or if he was the pre flop aggressor).
Hero (covers) SB: Been playing very tight, and V announced this to the table and requested that I begin playing more hands (this was about two hours before this hand takes place). Asked if I was a nut peddler, to which I responded that what he does with nuts in the bedroom is his own business, but please leave me out of it
Pre: 2 ep limps, V limps in the CO, BTN (stationy fish) limps, I complete J
SB, BB checks
Flop (30): J
I lead 20, V calls, BTN calls.
Turn (90): 4
I lead 65, V calls, BTN folds
River (220): K
I lead 180, V raises to 600.
I don't recall V over valuing hands in any real blatant way, nor having it in him to execute any large bluffs in the time i've been playing with him.
If it is possible he is raising with worse for value, what do you make of the large sizing? In most of your experiences, do you notice thinking players making a smaller raise with a hand like QT otr here?
Would you think that he would raise on either the flop or the turn with 9x some of the time, or does my line look strong enough that he may just enter call mode?
