Had this hand happen a few nights ago at a 2/5 game (300-1000) that had just opened. It was the only 2/5 game in the room and we were trying to get it going so we started six handed. This was the 4th hand. Villain is a younger guy (mid 20's) who I hadn't seen before. He had min-bought for $300 and I was in for $1000.
I have 6d 8d.
HERO raises $15
SB calls $13
VILLAIN calls $10
Flop: 5c 7c 9c (pot: $45)
SB checks, VILLAIN checks, HERO bets $40, SB folds, VILLAIN raises to $85, HERO goes all-in
A few conflicting things going on here. Villain is younger so he may be more willing to make a play but he also min-bought which may mean a few different things (feeling the game out, not comfortable playing deep, etc.). His min-raise on the flop screams strength and I'm effectively counting it as an all-in. I know literally nothing about villain so any range I give him is going to be a guess. The biggest problem I'm having is that we don't know how lightly he'll defend his big blind so I'm not sure how many made flushes he can have playing random suited connectors/gappers. The way the board is laid out he can't have many middle connectors so if he has a made flush it would either be Ax or broadway combos (JT+) of which he may 3bet some of those combos preflop because we're six handed. I elected to shove thinking that there are enough pair+draw, including nut flush+pair and straight+flush draw+pair, combos. Does that sound overly optimistic?
