Would love thoughts on a mangled hand. $5/10, $1000 deep, $20 straddle UTG. CO $500 deep raises to $50, I had two black Ts on the button, I was relatively new to the table and probably had a neutral-ish image. CO was relatively fit/fold and I thought that I could isolate him by reraising with a better hand, rather than call and invite the blinds in. So I reraise to 150. SB calls $500 deep, he's a straight-forward player that usually short-stacks and generally has it if he's involved by the river. Straddle calls, he has me covered, he's the unpredictable guy I described from a previous post that plays ATC, defends blinds liberally and check raises quite a bit with a wide range of bluffs and value hands post flop (same session but this was much earlier so I knew less about him). CO calls. Pot $610.
Flop comes As9s6s. All check around to me. I cbet $250 (I now have $600 behind). SB surprisingly just calls, leaving him with $100. Straddle/ATC guy min-raises to $500. CO folds.
Would love to hear your thoughts on three points:
1) Thoughts on 3-betting tens on the button? I would usually actually call in this spot given I'll have position post flop. My thinking was to iso the fit/fold guy and also if it goes 5-handed I'm really just set-mining since there will often be an overcard on the flop, and harder multi-way.
2) Cbetting the monotone flop with a FD esp with these stack sizes? My thinking at the time is most of the time I could take the pot down on the scary board, and if not, I had a redraw if I happened to be against an A. Bet sizing?
3) Flop action after being flatted/min-raised? Bear in mind even though early in the session, I had already seen straddle call PF, raise/check-raise with garbage and unexpected made hands -- my read at the time is that he could really have a wide range here. SB likely has a hand but we're pretty much committed to him now.
