Foxwoods 1-2 Saturday evening.
Table in general is very loose passive. Limpers are calling raises and I feel it's a bit more of a get in and make a hand type of game.
My image should be very tight.
Villain is to my right in CO. He seems competent, a bit loose for my liking at this level game, but he's psotionally aware, seen him raise to 8$ pre in LP over two limpers with 52s.
Hero $250 villain covers
Limps in 4 spots, hero limps BTN J10o SB completes BB checks
7 to flop
Checks to villain in CO who bets 8, hero calls all others fold.
Hero thinks villain is capable of having a worse or better jack as well as a deuce.
7 badugi board
Villain bets 20
At this point I'm still not quite ready to rule out a worse jack. I'm also thinking that most of the time if he has a better jack that the river is going to go check check. What would villain really get value from?
Villain leads 35
Hero feels in a pickle. I don't expect him to bet a hand like KJ all that often. It's not the norm in the room, not to say it's impossible for him to do it, the majority of the players in the room get to showdown though. So I think he can only have a 2 if I am beat. But does he also have anything else in his range that he's betting 3 streets in a limped pot? Why do I feel stuck calling the river because I made the ten? Is the ten at all relevant? I'm not so sure.
Is my thought process good? Is calling here nothing but spew? Should I consider a different line? Fold, or maybe even raise?
I discussed this hand with two guys I know playing 2-5 a few mins after it happened. They both gave different answers to the river play.
As more and more time goes on I'm really questioning my abilities as a player. I'm starting to think I just stink and my game is absolute garbage
