Hi folks. I'm a SOP subscriber and CLP subscriber. I usually post strat questions in the Live Low Stakes forum on 2+2 but I wanted to start participating here.
This is a 1/2 -300 NL game.
I have been playing most of the day. Had run my stack up to 900 but in the last few hours ran into some tough spots and am sitting on 450. Image is TAG and table sees me as "always involved in the big pots" but not winning now. They are still talking about an 800 pot I was involved in a couple hours ago where I got it in with top full and villain binked a 2 outer then mucked face up when he didn't realize he turned an overfull... pot was awarded to him as cards landed face up in muck.
Most recent hand I folded A5s on an AT53 board when tight villain reraised me. I showed my neighbor who then blabbed about it (I know I know) and there was a bunch of discussion about the fold being horrible. Villain had shown TT for a set to his neighbor and when he left a few hands later told his neighbor to tell us what he had.
On to the hand...
Villain 1 ($308) 50 something semi reg. Who I have only played with a few times I suspect he is a losing player. He bought in for 100 then with a 125 stack called a $16 pf raise and donk bet called a shove w/ AT on a a T high flop from QQ. He rebought and has built his stack when he got all in multiway and rivered a flush.
Villain 2 ($105) Late 20's fishy guy. Has been splashing all over with all sorts of hands. Only hand of significance I played with him he rivered a gutshot against my 2 pair When I bet/ bet/ called because he led a tiny bet OTR when he hit his gutter.
Hero ($450) Opens UTG+1 $15 with KK
V1 calls OTB, V2 calls from SB.
Flop ($45) 3s 5s 6c
V2 checks Hero bets $30
V2 c/r all in for $60 more.
Hero contemplates raising but decides to flat. At the time I was unsure whether I wanted to commit against this larger stacked villain on the flop. This point might be worth discussing?
V2 now back raises all in for $203
