Hey all. Got myself into a very interesting hand a few weeks ago. I don't normally play really deep on cash tables as I like to transfer and cash down most of the time and start fresh.
Any how here is how the hand
The table is $1/3 $200 cap game. I have been playing tight and straight forward and have recently won some pretty big hands and have a stack of $1200 effective. A good 10 hours into a session. It's now 2am and a monster stack comes and sits down 3 seats to my left. He will be the main Villan in the hand. He has me covered with $3500. I have played with him before and he loves to play deep. He respects my play and vise versa. He is very good applying pressure definately on players with 300BB+
I'm in the BB With two red 6's
Limped round to me I check and we see the flop 7 handed. The flop
Js 6c 2h ($21)
I'm first to act and lead for $15
I get called in 3 spots. Utg +1, Villan in MP and the button. Utg+1 and button have about $200 The turn
As Pot is $81
I lead for $75
V now re raises to $275
Button calls all in for $200
Pot is now $631 and it is $200 to call
What do you do?
This $1/3 table is a turbo table. you can buy 30 seconds for $1 twice in one hand. I never bought time and I did rush my descision because of that. I just called. I felt strongly I had the best hand but I also felt if I 3 bet here my hand looks that strong and he will fold almost all of his hands. So I called and was planning on betting river for value and if a spade fell and re raised me I would evaluate that then.
River is the 3c $831 total pot
I lead for $375 hoping to get called by two pair as that's what I believed a lot of his range to be. Looked like to me he was trying to protect his hand as we were so deep.
He bought time twice and thought about it and eventually folded. What I did forget is there is $231 in the side pot between just us.
I think he may have laid down just an ace. I can't see how he could lay down two pair on the river.
Let me know what you think guys. What he has? What you do on the turn and river? Looking back I should be re raising that turn pretty much always. I think $550-$6would've been ideal
