-V1 GIANT spot in the game, totally spewy.
-V2 huge spot who raises hands when he feels like it (in an earlier hand, he snap called a raise next to act in middle position with 63o as well as from the SB with T6dd).
-V3 (flop bettor) new to table. Not spewy, seemed straightforward.
-V4 Vietnamese guy with a big stack covering all of us. Can be really aggressive and is totally willing to put in his stack, but usually announces his intentions early. I think with his action on flop he doesn't have a big hand here.
-I will mostly just fold to a raise a hand like A9s from the SB. I realize the ideal answer is usually FOLD preflop, but because much of the table was playing a very wide range (even to raises), I thought this hand had too much value to fold.
-The table was playing very loose--these players came to play hands, not fold them. Very little fold equity preflop or on the flop, though big bets on the turn begin to dissuade them if they don't improve. All villains are playing their own hands for the most part, but some do have some are aware that players in the blinds could have a wider range and hit a weird two pair on the flop or something.
Question Not sure what the best line was here. Debated during the hand between these three:
1) Check-raising flop and betting turn.
2) Calling flop, check-shoving turn as a semi-bluff (assuming I missed turn)
3) Check-calling flop and turn getting pretty good immediate odds and a decent chance that at least one villain has an inferior flush draw.
