1/2 (with $2 button blind) early saturday morning around 1 am
hero (400): had been winning recently, taking my share of the pie vs. two mega-fish at the table. late 30's guy, glasses, jogging jacket, jeans. nothing outlandish. had to be seen as solid player at this time.
villain (800): quiet, late 20-something guy on white-hot streak. kept rivering heart flushes and had built up the table's biggest stack. overall, actually struck me as a tighter-than-usual player. had seen him limp with KQ pre OOP -- not mega-tight, but a little unusual. but he still liked to chase post flop, which is how he kept hitting flushes. had not played with him before tonight. i could tell he wasn't particularly savvy -- i hadn't seen him make any big plays or play very aggressively. it was a simple case of him getting hit hard with the deck. we had not gotten mixed up in a big hand before this -- play had mostly revolved around the two mega-fish, who didn't figure in this hand.
two limpers to me and i've got Ks2s on the button. i'm already in for a $2 blind and i check. villain in SB completes.
flop ($10): Ts6s3s
villain bets 10. others fold. i make it 30. he pauses for a while. at first, i thought he'd definitely call. then he took so long that i started to wonder. then he finally called.
turn ($70): 9s
villain bets $50.
