Playing deep stacked 1/2 in a private game and this hand came up.
Hero has God-like image and has only been showing down winners.
Villain is the effective stack with $190 to start the hand. He is a pretty ABC TAG and is stuck about 1K. He is calling a lot more than usual the past few hours and seems to be opening up his preflop calling and opening ranges.
Double straddle to $10 and hero opens to $35 with KK in MP2 with $800 back. We get a call from the straddle, and V calls in the double straddle
Pot: $110 Flop: 7 5 A rainbow
Checks to me and I c-bet $70 for value. BB folds and V check raises all-in for $90 more.
Hero thinks and folds. Should we be paying off in this spot all the time, or is the bet/fold line acceptable on this flop?
