Played a short session today and got into this hand which I found very interesting after going back and running some equities.
V1: REC 60 year old man. Appears to be playing fairly basic fit/fold ABC Tight Poker. I've seen him donk out big with pretty huge hands as well as some lesser hands. He appears "merged in his donk range". (Covers)
V2: Aussie 30 year old REC player. Plays pretty loose from what I've seen so far. Tends to be pretty aggressive as well including making some merged river value bets that I was rather surprised by. Tends to only open to 15 no matter the situation. His raises tend to be QJ+, TT+ type hands. (Covers)
Hero: Tight Aggressive Player. Losing Image. All but one time I've raised, I've either been 3-bet by an older man and shown a huge hand or whiffed the flop/gotten a bad c-bet board/too many people in the hand to c-bet. ($500)
V1 limps from +1. V2 raises to 15 in the HJ. Hero calls in the CO with T♠ 9♠ .
3-ways to the flop.
Flop: 7♠ 8♥ 9♣ ($45)
V1 donks for $40. V2 fairly quickly min-raises to $80. Hero ???
In the actual hand, I decided to fold because I never imagined V2 would raise/fold as a REC Aussie Gambler nor did I know if V1 had flopped a monster or 2-pair+. I think that's a bit too MUBs though.
After looking at some equities, while I don't think there's a problem with folding, I think that raising may be more optimal.
9Ts vs TT+ for V2 is 42/58
9Ts vs QQ+ for V2 is 48/52
9Ts vs TT+/JTs for V2 is 39/61
Anyone think raising to $220 and jamming most turns for $265 is going to be a more optimal line?
If I had TT in this hand, due to blockers and equity, I would most certainly lay down the hammer.
