1/2 $300 max NL
Bart talked about this on the SOP I believe a little while back. I'm trying to figure out if this is the same type of spot, and if so how I should play this.
Hero ($400) Image isn't terrible, but isn't great. I had to raise/fold a few times pre, and each time guys showed pocket aces. Since then I've won a few hands and showed down strong PF hands.
Villain ($150) 20's white guy. Limp/reraised utg all in for like $80 about 30 mins ago. Won a few hands so now he's up to $150. Otherwise played fairly passive and straightforward.
Hero (UTG) As Ac raises to $11
Villain (CO) calls
Flop: Jh 9s 3s
Hero bets 35
Villain calls 35
Turn: Jh 9s 3s Jh
Villain didn't look too pained, but didn't look like he was super confident. Took about 15-20 seconds of thinking at least.
Jx of spades is possible here. I also block Axss so that's another draw he can't have.
The capped buyin makes this difficult as well. He has about a PSB left, but if I were to shove here I don't think he's calling like pocket 8's.
Can I possibly bet like $50 and fold a raise?
If it checks through, if spades brick out I can be pretty sure he doesn't have trip jacks and I can make a solid value bet for maybe $60-70 and he might think I bricked out on spades and are taking a shot.
Any thoughts, also thoughts on how to play this in a capped buyin game.
