2/5 500 eff stacks
Villain in the hand is mid 20s aggressive player who isnt that good. I have a bit of history with him and he plays a wide range preflop, basically anything suited, and can put the pressure on post flop and can also be a calling station.
V limps $5 UTG...2 more limpers...hero raises CO to $30 with A♣ A♦..just V calls. Heads up to the flop.
3♦ 4♦ 9♠
V checks and hero bets $35 I wanted to bet small to look like a weak c bet from AK or AQ type hands and hope to get raised by worse, sure enough V check raises to $80...hero just flats?
I like flatting in position against a LAG and letting him hang himself. Opinions?
V leads for $80 with $310 behind. This is where I really think I thought the hand through well. First his check raise on the flop is almost a min raise, now he's leading turn for the same small bet. Sure his range of limp calling can be sets and 3 4 but would he really bet this small with these hands with a flush draw out there. I checked my cards and I do have the A♦ so I could easily have any Ax♦ and surely he would want to play for stacks with sets and 2 pair. I really think he has some sort of suited connector or gapper in diamonds so I make a pot size shove thinking he has to have a draw he can't fold.
V tank calls with 5♦ 7♦ and the river bricks.
How did I do?
