$500 cap 2/5 at Borgata
Villain is a semi-reg and plays very well for a non-professional player, on the TAGgy side
Villain raises to $20 from button
Hero defends in BB with QcQs
When I 3-bet this guy when he opens from late-ish position he almost always folds. So I decided to just take a flop this time
Ad Qd 9c flop ($42)
Hero bets $15
Villain raises to $50
Hero raises to $175
Villain looks at me a little suspiciously and tank calls after a while
If I c/r, he'll probably snap fold a weak A. I made a stupidly small bet to induce a raise from a wide range, and sure enough, he has complied so far
And of course the turn is the Jd
$392 in pot and ~$300 left in stacks
The annoying part here is the effective stack sizes. I can't c/c to fill up. If I bet and get shoved on, pot odds mandate a snap call.
If I check, I'm technically getting the wrong odds to call to fill up if I get shoved on, but I still rarely fold flopped sets in 100BB cap games. It's highly unlikely he has a lower set or two pair because he would most likely get those hands in on the flop, so if I get shoved on, most of the time it will be by flushes.
