Hero ($1000) - unknown at this casino. Mildly winning, aggressive image although just lost $500 in a standard coin flip on the flop a few hands back. Joked with the winner afterward so shouldn't appear tilted.
MP1 ($1000) - loves to see flops, but plays more straightforward post flop. 60 years old regular.
Btn (covers) - playing fairly loose all night and up pretty big for the session. Approx 45-year-old regular.
Preflop - playing with a mandatory $6 button straddle. Action starts in the small blind. It's getting late and down to 7-handed. Hero raises to $20 in BB with QQ88ddcc. Two call in MP and the Button makes it $60. All call 4way to the flop.
I only remember the button 3betting once earlier but it was to full pot with aces and he called it off on a wet flop.
Flop ($245) - Kh Qh 6s. Hero checks, MP1 pots, MP2 folds, button calls quickly. Hero? $940 left.
I checked expecting button to bet this flop often since my stack size sets up for a CRAI, but maybe a lead is better. MP1 has a big piece of this flop to pot here. He is not taking a stab or betting something like the dry nut flush draw. I thought the buttons quick call indicated a hand like NFD, AJTx, or JT9x. I think he takes a little longer and may raise with a set or top two pair. I went into the tank and considered all three options here.
