Villain is the main reason I was sitting at this game. He's super loose from all positions, almost never folds his BB or straddle, and rarely puts anyone to super though decisions post-flop.
My image is:
People tend not to believe me when I make any type of bet, especially this villain. I find this odd, because I'm a younger clean-looking girl who you would expect to be weak-tight.
I have no idea why I look like I'm bluffing all the time.
Villain straddles UTG for 20
Folded to tight-passive old guy in MP who limps
I kind of want to play HU against UTG, so I make it 100 from the CO with 88
Villain defends his straddle (as expected)
Old guy folds (as expected)
J 3 J rainbow
Hero bets 80
Villain quickly calls
Hero bets 175
Villain quickly calls as if he's not planning to fold
Villain quickly checks like he still thinks he has the best hand
My analysis here is that this guy is definitely not going to believe I have a J, now that the third J is on the board. He doesn't believe me, so he might call with any pair or even A high, and he's not the type to turn something into a bluff and represent quad J's
Hero bets 680
Of course, I might be value owning against 99 or TT, but for somebody who defends his straddle with 75% of hands, these hands seem unlikely
Is this a little too big? I was trying to use psychology to make him think I had either quad J's or a bluff.
