2/5 1000 cap gm.
V1 (REG, older guy, seems competent: ~800) limps
HERO (mid 30s, pretty new to table, won a couple of pots w/o SD: 1200) overlimps 2♣ 3♣
V2 old fart (~150) overlimps, like 5 way to flop.
Flop (25): A45r (1 club, 1 diamond) V1 old-reg bets 20, V2 old fart on my left calls out of turn
HERO, says: "I didn't act yet", raises to 60, V2 now insta-calls 60, folded back to V1, he bets-3-bets to 165 (~600 behind), HERO calls, V2 insta AI for like like 120-130 total.
This is the first big decision point in the hand, do we 4bet V1 on this flop?
I considered it, but the flop being rainbow, the V2 fish clearly having an Ace combined with the fact that V1 seemed competent I just though V1 would fold almost everything.
I also thought that pot is bloated enough that it would be pretty easy to get $$$ in by the river anyway.
What does everybody think about it here???
Turn (480): K♦ (puts back door FD). I thought this was like a perfect card for me
V1 old-Reg bets 165 (~600 behind), HERO raises to 360 V1 tanks for like 2-3 mins and finally mucks (later told another reg that he had A5 - seemed believable)
Obviously I was upset I didn't get his stack, so I was wondering did I make a mistake?
Should I have smooth called on the turn?
Maybe ship the turn? but it's a protected pot, so it's hard for me to be bluffing here...
Maybe the guy was just good and I couldn't do anything to get any more of his $$$, I dunno...wonder what you guys think...
