Same session as my heart flush hand but this time I have reads on people, it’s probably been another 20 hands or so.
V1 - BTN = very lag-aggro and plays many hands, a lot of stupid hands too. This guy is Iranian or someone of that ethnic group (just an FYI, like Bart, I’m not prejudice or anything like that, just giving ya info…his attitude was, “you got balls, then let’s go!!”)
V2 - UTG = probably a level 2 thinker, if not at least a decent TAG – young guy in his mid 20s – he’s definitely on the ball, methodical and friendly too.
Hero: = my image was a winning image but also probably perceived as a “luck box” too, so any time I played a hand….”here they come!!” and then they came, saw and lost…LOL. It was a good night for me. I finished the night $440.00 on the plus side.
Onto the hand……and just remember…if you’re gonna spend the money to listen and learn from Bart…then do what he tells ya!!! (hint…hint)
Effective stacks: $291.00 1/2 100 Cap game
UTG-V2 ($291.00) opens to $6.00 - *it was an odd opening because everyone, including this V was opening in previous hands with $10.00 or more.
UTG+1 (Hero) ($476.00) – I pick up pocket 99 - I call
Fold to BTN-V1 ($190.00) – calls
Hero: Checks – based on what I’ve learned from Bart, I would normally bet at this point but V1 on the BTN is super laggy and aggro and I expected him to bet (that was his MO prior to this hand) but he checked to my surprise!!
River: 2h – no flush or straight possibilities
Hero: Bets $40.00 (I’m thinking value bet)
BTN-V1: raises to $80.00
Back around to UTG: he thinks for about 1 min and then says strongly….”ALL IN” AI for $265.00
Hero: I tanked this baby but I instantly remembered Bart’s teachings about the under boats (if that’s what we call ‘em). I thought to myself, this guy to my right has to have QQs to make this play….more of my thought process during the hand and what I did..after I hear what you all have to say about this…
BTN-V1: I’ll tell you what he did when I give the final outcome.
Hero does what?
After everybody throws in their two cents, I’ll give you the final outcome.
