Standard 2/5 game at Caesars in Vegas. I just sat down at the table, and this is my second orbit at the table; I don't have any real reads on anyone except that the table seemed relatively normal.
My stack is $1030; villain covers.
I'm on the button with 3:spade:3:club:, MP1 raises to $20, and I flat. BB comes along for the ride.
Flop: K♥ 3♦ Q♠
PF raiser bets $50. I flat, as I wanted to underrep my hand.
PF raiser fires $100 into the pot. I flat again, as I felt a raise here really accomplishes nothing without a read. AA would fold, KK continues, KQ continues. Only hands I'm ahead of that I felt would call the raise would be all Qx hands that's not a boat.
PF raiser fires $295 into the pot. I start tanking and think of the hands he would fire this big with. AA would check, AK would check, AQ, and all Qx I think would check in this spot here. The only reasonable combos with this line that I'm ahead of are AQ and Q10. I'm behind KK, KQ, QJ, and JJ (although I don't think JJ is in his range as played here).
If I had a read on the opponent, I'd have a much easier time in this spot.
In hindsight, if I had raised the flop I would have had a better grasp on the hand.
Any insight and thoughts are appreciated.
