Game is 2/4 $400 effective stacks
V1 is a good player. Have played with him several times. He doesn't get out of line and is pretty tight. Is capable of makibg big folds and big buffs (normally semi bluffs) most of the time he has the goods. Early into a session I have been playing for 1 hour. My image is tight as I still have my intial buy in.
V1 raises over 1 limper in UTG +1 to $15
(Which I think was on the small side considering there is 1 limper already)
He gets called in 4 spots behind and it is on hero in BB with 8♣ 8♠. Hero calls
Flop J♣ 7♥ 5♠ (90)
Checked to V who bets $25
3 callers behind it is on Hero.
What does everyone think about raising here and representing a set?
I believe even if V has AA we can pit him under a lot of pressure and I still don't think he can call. He has played a lot against me on 1/3 where I played a super nitty game because of shirt stack sizes and he has seen this play from me before and I've always had a set.
As for the players behind, they have only called. It's possible of one of them slow playing a set here but unlikely I think. We also have two blockers to one of the straight draws
My main question is do you think this would be a winning play and what size would you raise to?
