Game: $1-$3, $300 cap
Table is 7 handed
Preflop: I open to $12 UTG1 with 9♠ 8♠. CO & both blinds call.
Villain in this hand is in the BB. I am the effective stack with $350. I've only played with him a time or 2 before so not a lot of reads but I do remember that he will peel flops with overcards & 2nd pair type hands.
Flop: 8♦ 7♣ 2♠. Checked to me & I bet $25. Only the BB calls & we are now heads up.
Turn: 9♦. He checks to me & I bet $45. He check-raises to $125. The pot is now $260 & we have $265 left. What's your play & why?
