1-3 NL. Effective stacks are roughly $400
Hero is on the BTN with T♦ 7♦
4 limps, I call, both blinds come along. 7 players to flop ($21)
9♦ 2♦ J♣
2 checks, MP bets $10
1 call in front of me, I call, both blinds fold, UTG calls, the rest fold.
Turn, 4 players ($61)
UTG checks, MP bets $15, everyone calls.
River, 4 players ($121)
3 checks to hero who bets $75
UTG raises to $200, 2 folds back to hero who????
My questions are.
1) Is the bet on the river a solid value bet, or spew?
In the hand before this one, the UTG guy got pissed off that someone bluffed him out on the river with a $140 bet, and the other player in the hand looked the bettor up light and took down the pot with a worse hand than the one UTG folded. I was thinking I could get called here by him if he had a J or 8.
2) Are we priced in to call? We're getting a little over 3 to 1.
Does a recreational player ever do this with less than QT? It's hard to put him on trip nines because that means he would have checked it twice.
3) In a limped pot with 7 players, should I have raised on the flop to thin the field and then used overcards to the J to barrel the turn and/or river if I don't hit one of my 12 outs? OR, because it is a limped pot and this board seems to hit alot of limping ranges, was I better off waiting to make a real hand before getting aggressive?
