I feel like these are the kinds of hands we all can get ourselves into and struggle with. Or Maybe just me. I'm going to at least get to the flop now but feedback appreciated on all action.
$1/2 playing big, everyone over 100bb up to 200bb. Hero 150bb tight image.
UTG straddles $4
2 callers to me in HJ with A6c
I call just because it's a crazy loose table with multiway limped pots and straddle checks a lot so you can look to flop big or get out early. Ok?
Fold to button calls, BB calls and straddle pops it to $30 total. 2 callers back to me. Obviously I call it or the post is over but is that just an horrible play? I'm looking at possibly 5:1 to see a flop where people will pay with worse if I hit. Just too much gamble? Also you can steal this flop if everyone misses and you bet. I've seen people turn over K7o on the river in other hands that started like this.
Folds out to straddle so now I'm IP with 4 to the flop $129ish in the pot already.
Flop 2h 6h 5c
Straddle checks, EP checks, MP bets $30.
