my first time in the forums here, but i've been thinking about this hand and wanted some feedback other than from friends i've already spoken with. hand was at borgata where the $2/5 is a $500 cap.
super late - 6AMish - two dudebros with club wristbands come to table, one clearly drunker than the other, but both a bit tipsy. less tipsy one sits to my direct left. we chat socially and i can tell he has a bit of a clue even if he keeps mentioning how he's wasted. we get the table into a little us vs. them action talking shit to the other end (in jest obv) about how our end of the table is awesome and their end is donks and we're gonna fuck them up. i took a piss and missed the hand, but when i came back he had just doubled up to $600ish after losing a bit from his original $400 buy-in.
i sit down to AKo in the BB and make it $25 over two limps. dudebro to my left calls and everyone else folds. i tell him this is against the rules and dudebros at the same end of the table don't civil war each other. he has the $600ish mentioned above and i cover.
flop ($60): A34ss (ace not a spade, i have ace of spades). i bet $30 and he instacalls.
turn ($120): 10o. i bet $55 and he raises to $135. i think for maybe ten seconds and call.
river ($390): 2s. i check he bets $175.
i'm not a big fan of my turn sizing. i think it should have been larger and considered in the moment that perhaps my small sizing induced a bluff raise. this is maybe the only argument for a river call, but i don't really have enough time at the table with this guy to reliably gauge his propensity to bluff the river in order to justify a check/call. it's possible that my anti-dudebro-civil-war comment could make him think i'm playing more straightforwardly against him and therefore should lay down the largest part of my range here. yeah i know lol at him thinking that deeply, but i think he could pick up on that sort of dynamic subconsciously.
