$2/$2 ($200 Cap) at Bestbet Jacksonville
V1 (HJ - $400) - 60s white male. Seems pretty loose/passive, limping a lot of hands. Aggression postflop seems to be more made hands than draws, but limited sample size.
V2 (SB - $200) - 40s white female. Typical $1/$2 player - have seen her at least twice raise with medium strength hands to "find out where she's at".
Hero (CO - $400) - 30s black male. Have only been at the table 15 minutes, but already doubled up once with KK vs AQ on a queen-high flop in a 3-bet pot. Done nothing else other than that. The table does know that I am on the list for a $2/$5 seat.
Preflop: Folds to V1 in HJ who openlimps. Hero in CO with A♦ K♦ raises to $12. V2 in SB calls. V1 calls.
Pot $36. Flop 9♦ 9♥ 3♦. V2 checks. V1 checks. Hero bets $18. V2 raises to $40. V1 calls. Hero calls.
Pot $156. Turn 4♠. V2 checks. V1 tanks and bets $80. Hero tanks and calls. V2 looks back at her hand and folds.
Pot $316. River 7♦. V1 tanks and checks. Hero bets $65 targeting 9x. V1 snap shoves for $270 total. Hero?
Preflop is standard. On the flop, I went a little bit smaller with my sizing as I wanted smaller pairs to hang around until I could bomb the river, getting more value. I could have bet larger for straight value with my 14 outs to a smaller pair, but I chose the sizing to get the best of both worlds.
V2s flop check/raise is almost always either a smaller FD, 3x, or a midpair. I was planning to call and then raise just about any turn. But then V1 coldcalled. I wasn't sure what to make of his range for that play. Thoughts on a range for him? Getting another bet in on the flop after that action would be overkill, right?
Turn convinces me I'm right on V2s range. But now V1 bets. This is 9x, right? I considered folding, but felt the 3:1 price tag was too good to pass up at this point. I thought there was some chance V2 calls behind me as well. Thoughts?
River really makes me think he has 9x. I think he'd bet a smaller flush, and probably would check/fold 9x to a larger bet, so I went small, trying to make the price look too good to fold. Then he snap-shoves! Does he ever take this line with a smaller flush? Or with that pacing is this always a boat?
