$5/$5 cash game, crazy table dynamic, a lot of limping, people having fun.
Villain, UTG2 ($800), around his 30s, from Middle East, Loose Passive, plays at least 70% of his hands. He is one of the spots at the table.
Hero, cutoff ($650), playing at this table for 2 hours, not playing any hands, Super Tight.
No history between Hero & Villain.
I'm the Hero with 9♠ 2♠ on the cutoff, I was sit out and came back at this moment to the table then I posted $10 on the cutoff as I missed the blinds. Every single person limped , I checked my option, the blinds did the same.
Flop (~$45) 9♥ 8♥ 4♣ 9 handed
Everybody checks, I decided to bet $40 for value to get called by draws or middle pair.
Villain calls pretty fast on the UTG2.
Turn (~$125) 2♦ HU
Pretty good turn for me, couldn't ask better, I bomb $100 knowing that V is fishy and he is not folding open ended or top pair for sure. He calls again.
River (~$325) J♣ HU. Final Board 9♥ 8♥ 4♣ 2♦ J ♣
V makes the motion like he is about to check, then kind of changes his mind and bets $260...
