$300 effective stacks, both opponents have me covered.
My image is a little loose so far in this session, having won a good pot earlier when I opened w/ J2 suited on the button & got 3 streets w/ trip 22s. I have been actively open raising in late position & winning pots w/out show down.
Mid-aged Asian man opens in mid-position to $15. I have not played w/ him before. He has been at the table for about an hour & has been pretty quiet so far, winning a few small pots w/out going to showdown.
I call in the CO w/ red 99.
SB calls. He is a white guy in a Masters hat who looks to be in his upper 50s. He has played lots of pots & is running good. He looks like he's always following the action but has made several bad plays, chasing draws with bad odds & calling multiple streets w/ 2nd pair or less. Most recently he won a decent pot by chasing the low end of a gut shot on the turn on a 2 flush board when he hit on the river.
I had been up about $200 but stack had dwindled down to $300 after I could not run down his QQ w/ 2nd pair & the nut flush draw.
Flop is 9♣ 8♣ 3♦
Preflop raiser C-bets $60 into $45. This is where I got a little stuck & I was unsure of the correct amount to raise. When he makes that bet into that board, I give him credit for an overpair that just wants to take the pot now.
My question is how much to raise? There's $100 in the pot & I have about $285 left. I ended up making it $140, leaving me about $145. If the SB folds & he calls there would be about $320 in the pot, which sets up an easy shove on the turn. Shipping the flop seems like a massive overbet & raising much smaller may price in the SB on a very wet board. Not sure what the correct bet amount would be here. Thank you.
