Games have been good. 1/2. 5$ button straddle, mandatory. hero neutral image in these two sessions.
#1. About 250$ effective. Hero on button checks 6688T three ways.
Flop 226. 90yr old Omc leads 15$, fish who overplays hands calls. Omc will fold naked 2 to a large raise, fish probably goes with one. What's our plan for max value? Keep all three in or iso fish who's willing to stack off light? Our runner runner live 8 draw isn't very appealing obviously if we go HU.
#2 game pretty passive pre and post, about 300$ effective. Four limpers. Hero raises to 25$ on button with AA4T6ds to♦♠ .
Flop 8♠ J♦ T♦ (100$) checks to hero.
I only raised to thin the field as i expected some folds, and occasionally take it down pre. Any less than a pot/near pot bet seems like a spew here, with no FE. should we check, or fire? Obviously a bet will probably clean up our backdoor low draw, and has some FE but we're committed if called. Doubt we can get it in less than a 45%/55% dog.
These seem to some of my awkward spots
Maximizing value with big one way hands from the blind/straddle and checking or stacking off in marginal 45/55 50/50 55/45 flips.
