Prime example of why having a weak image sucks. I was about to leave this game, but I already ordered food from the chip runner and paid with my comps, so I thought I would wait for him to bring it first.
I was having one of those sessions in which I don't flop much, and when I finally flop one pair, I have to fold it. Lost several small-medium pots and topped off stack a couple times.
Villain is a backpack kid who I haven't seen before. Seems to be loose-passive pre but plays decently aggressively post
I have about 950 and change effective, villain covers
Everybody folds to villain in SB
Hero checks BB with Th6h
$10 to flop
Flop Qh 5h 4h
Whoo! I have a flush!
Hero bets 10
Villain raises to 40
90 to turn
Hero bets 65
Villain raises to 165
I'm already a little unhappy with the double C/R here but decide to call with what might be the best hand. And if anything, I have a straight flush draw.
420 to river
River is Ks
Villain throws enough $100 bills in the pot to cover me
This bet is a pretty big overbet...
Approximately 700 into 400
The annoying part is, I've been a little weak and shown that I fold against aggression. The way I played the hand, it looks like I have a set, so maybe he's trying to scare a set away with a massive overbet.
Would he bet anything but a straight flush for value this way? Of course, if an ordinary nut flush is in his value range, that makes it an easier fold. So does this mean either straight flush or bluff? Which means he pretty much has to have Ah2h because I have the 6h?
Should having the 6h for blocker value influence this river decision?
