I dont see villain that often at the 5/5 game at hustler but I played about 4 hours with him on saturday and it got me thinking. I could probably play any two cards against him in position.. Why? first he is an older white gentlemen who was speaking hebrew to another player at my table. So I assume he is Israeli .. I would say he is in his late 60s or early 70s..
He has a very reliable bet sizing tell.. pre and post..
In a limped pot he would raise to 40 with a premium hand.. Then bomb the flop ..
So as an example He raised to 40 once got one caller and on a board that was 9 high he shipped all in for like 400 . I am 100% sure he had an overpair..
In a hand I called his 25 raise with QT suited 5 ways so $125 in the pot.. Flop came Q high and he lead out for $25.. flop had a two flush so I made it $75 in case he was on a draw everyone folded to him and he snapped folded..
Sooo this lead me to think.. So when he raises big play hands that can stack him if I hit say two pair or a set and when he raises a bit smaller play a super wide range and just raise his tiny cbets as bluffs...
Now here is a hand I played after thinking this through
V1 is older bet tell guy- 1000
V2 is super loose calling station and bluffer.. 1000+
Hero.. I have 1200
V1 opens to 50 over 1 limper I call in HJ with JJ V2 calls on btn.. limper also called.. pot $200
Flop 9♦ 8♣ 2♥
V1 leads $65
Sooo.. I have JJ and villain kinda makes a small bet.. Do I raise? Flat?
Raise: Protects my equity in the pot.. will be hard for players behind me to peel with other pairs straight draws and overs
Flat: Villain might be thinking $65 is a big bet and will ship over my raise.. And I just wasted say $200.. A player behind me might have flopped two pair or a set and will ship it in and it cost me more to find out..
