Hero is in SB w/ kings. Over 200 bigs effective. MP player raises to $20. Older man to immediate left calls, button calls. Hero makes it $75. All three call, raiser and button give it a little thought. Old man calls without much apparent thought. Thoughts on 3-bet sizing?
Flop comes A, 8, 4 all spades. Hero does not have a spade. Hero checks. Preflop raiser seems to think this is odd and checks. Everybody else checks quickly. My thought here is that this is a truth serum board. There is no way somebody hanging on with a A won't bet and give someone with a large spade a chance to draw at it. Comments?
Turn pairs the board w/ A of clubs. Hero leads for $110. Preflop raiser quickly folds and both other players quickly call. My read here is that both have a fairly large spade draw with or without a pair. Given action thus far along with turn card reinforces my read that nobody here ever has an ace. I am now thinking of targeting an 8 with a spade in it on the river for thin value from somebody who doesn't think I have a pair.
River is a blank. Hero tanks for awhile considering bet size and leads for $160. Old man calls. Button folds with some disgust. Thoughts on sizing or anything else?
