recently at my local 5/5 game a new young gal started playing. she recently moved to LA from vegas and has been playing the games with me. She buys in for $500 or only 100bbs and generally she plays very tight.
She also makes some rather backwards plays although I am not sure if they will always work as other better players adapt. If she is the pfr she is going to check two pair plus..even on wet boards.. she does this to trap.. she will however bet her one pair hands draws and bluffs..
Soooo when she bets I basically can almost always cap her range at one pair..
on to the hand..
Hero has a great image.. been making moves and hardly ever showing down any hands...except when I am good. I have over $1800..
Villain has sat down in the game a short time earlier.. has $500 ish..
Hero opens in co to $20 with 8♦ 6♦ villain is only player to call.
She tends to play tighter..but I have seen her 3 bet with as little as AJ against a range she felt was wider.. So in this case I think she can be calling me wider.. Maybe broadway cards weak ace small to med pairs..
Flop Pot ($45) A♦ 8♥ 6♥
gotta luv that fop.. she checks I bet $35.. I want to keep her in.. this board is kinda polarized so If she doesnt have an ace I think she is likely to fold. She calls after a moment.. She used to tank alot.. and I mean almost every hand.. then I told her I would call the clock if she didnt speed up a bit.. every since she is better and generally takes a sec before she makes a decision. there isnt any read on this ..
Turn pot ($115) .. 5♣
she checks and hero bets $65.. since I block middle and bottom set its also unlikely she has a better two pair I want to get action on all of her one pair aces and flush draws..
She check raises me to $185....
So I was a bit surprised.. I havent every seen her check raise on the turn. especially if she has 2 pair plus.. she always slowplays that til river because with her 500 stack she can always get it in.
Soooo.. if she is capped at one pair an ace a draw or a bluff what is heroes best play???
