$5/5 nlhe cash game, normal dynamic as Hero just got to the table 10 minutes before this hand happened.
Hero: $500, A ♥ A ♠️ , BT, image is neutral, i just got to this table 10 minutes ago.
Villain, $900, BB, Unknown Asian on his 30s, Reg at this casino, i know that because i saw him the next couples days i played there. He looks competent but i’m not sure.
Pre-Flop: Action folded to Hero who open raises to $20 on the BT, SB folds V flats on the BB.
FLOP: $40, HU, 2♥ 3 ♦️ 5♥
V checks , H bets $25, V now check/raises to $75, H calls.
“So here i decided to flat in a trapping way to be honest, i mean, kind of to let him hang himself with the intention of maybe shove turn if he bets depending what comes, as i’m IP.
Do you think it’s worth it to click it back here, like reraising to ~ $180/$220?
1). Thoughts? what would you do?
TURN: $190, HU, 2 ♠️
(we have $405 effective now)
V now bets $125 and H flat calls after thinking for 30 seconds.
“ Here again i flat thinking that the board is so good that i don’t want to lose V now and for some reason i felt he was weak, kind of way ahead way behind, or he beats me with FH or i have him crushed.
Imo if i didn’t raise flop i shouldn’t raise here often, Do you agree?
2). Thoughts ??
RIVER: $440, HU, 7 ♣️
(we are now $280 effective)
Villain bets $135…
Board 2♥ 3 ♦️ 5♥ 2 ♠️ 7 ♣️
Pot now $575, $135 to call, leaving $145 behind.
