NL 5/5 with a live straddle to 10.
I don't remember the stack sizes and bet sizes to the exact cent, but it doesn't matter all that much I think.
Hero (CO) with approx. 1,250 - have been playing pretty tight so far compared to the rest of the table, but running bad and loosing during the first two hours so far.
V1 (BTN) 3,000 - very solid and competent reg, does handread well; plays lots of hands in position, but is rather straightforward postflop; doesn't really float with crap to make a move on a later street
V2 (SB) 1,500 -; weaker player, plays too many hands from OOP, is generally aggressive postflop with his strong hands and more passive with his weaker hands; has shown bluffs as well, but only from in position and has played them aggressively from the start;
Folds to hero on CO who raises to 30 with K
V1 (BTN) calls, V2 (SB) calls, BB folds
Flop (100) A
V2 leads for 65,
I thought that V2's leading range is strong, since he would check-call with most weaker or drawing hands; for this reason, the flop is close, and I have poor relative position. But on the other hand, I have 2nd pair, a gutshot + BDFD, and V1 is not making a lot of moves, so I called.
Hero calls, V1 calls behind
Turn (around 300) Q
V2 leads approx. 240,
I now know for sure that V2 has the straight too, b/c he would check/call with any other hand, and his betsize is huge; so, my options are obv. calling and raising.
I chose to only flatcall after some deliberation in order to misrepresent my hand, and b/c I don't want to get freerolled by the straight + FD.
(Is this FPS?)
Hero calls, V1 calls
V1 calls rather quickly, so I think he has a straight as well most of the time (and might not raise for the same reasons I didn't), and maybe a FD or two pair a low % of the time. I would discount sets a lot b/c he would raise the flop with them most of the time IMO to build the pot and get value from worse hands. FDs are mostly low, b/c the A
and two other high diamonds are on the board.
River (around 1000) T
V2 checks, hero shoves 900 more.
This is the scariest card in the deck. So is this a good spot to bluff both villains of their likely straights?
(Thoughts on other streets are also appreciated.)
