Late night, I joined the 2/4 table for the last 2 hours of the night. I had a nice winning streak and I showed down once 34s where I won a big pot with two pair on the flop. In that hand an arabian guy in his mid forties donked out 30€ in a 82€ pot on a flop of 346ss, the PFR went all in with 180, one guy called and I made it 460. Arabian folded and caller folded, I won against some 6x.
This Arabian guy is the villain of the hand: he is the typical loose passive rec and we saw him donk/fold once. We played together only for half an hour and I didnt see much more from him besides limping, calling and folding.
Arabian(666€ stack) openraises to 18 from HJ, the all in guy(250€ left) from the other hand calls in the CO and I 3bet A♦ K♦ to 66. Both call. I wanted to call them with worse hands so I sized it a little bit smaller.
Do you size it larger to get heads up with someone and/or to generate more FE?
Flop (200): J♦ 7♦ 2♣
I didnt see the purpose in betting. I have the best hand a lot here and if someone is going to want to "protect" their pocket pairs or hitted pairs I can bring them in a tough spot with a CR and lots of equity behind.
So I check, Arabian makes it 68, HJ folds and I reraise to 230. He doesnt take too long to push his 600 stack in the middle and I call since I'm obviously committed given my hand.
What do you think about the CR instead of CBetting this flop?
Its one of the last hands of the night before the casino closes.
Villain is a young dude in his late twenties. He seems to come from an online background but I would rather classify him as fishy as he raises too much, calls too much and I've seen him doing weird small bets as a bluff and once with a medium strength hand. I also took him to valuetown once with JTo where I bet twice multiway on a drawy J high board and he calls down. He was very surprised how I could bet there. Besides he saw me already bluffing and betting medium strength hands for value. A few hands ago he raised my CB on a dry K82 board what might have been a bluff.
I will just write down the hand and I would be glad to hear some thoughts on it or even what you think what I've been thinking playing it the way I played it. I will write my thoughts down now and paste them when some people have shared their ideas.
He (1100€ effective) openraises for 20 from the BU, I 3bet for value to 60 with A♠ K♣ from the SB, he calls.
Flop(122): J♦ 8♣ 4♠
I check and he checks
I bet 70, he calls after a short while
I bet 120, he raises 290, what's your play?
