Villain (800) bad rec player. Bought in for 300, got stacked, rebought for 300 and doubled up plus a little. Calls pretty wide preflop, but not so bad that he plays arc to a raise. Definitely does not like to fold post though. Haven't really seen him with a deep stack, but with his 300 he was treating top pair like the nuts. I think he stacked up because another bluffy fish kept trying to barrel air and he kept picking the guy off with obit strong one pair-ish hands. Haven't really seen him make a min raise like this before.
Quick note, he just got a seat locked up on another game and started to rack up. This may be his last hand for what its worth.
Hero (1200) up and down this session. I got stacks in vs one guy at the table (not villain) and won 2 of 3, but showed down good hands every time. On a decent run of cards so I raised somewhat frequently pre, but not like crazy aggro.
Hero (utg) Jd Jc raises 20
Villain calls on the button
Flop Jh 8d 3d
Bb checks, hero bets 40, viIlain raises to 90, bb folds, hero raises to ?
I know we always talk about min raises on wet boards being like a top pair hand trying to "see where he's at." In that case I could make a small reraise and try to get value later in the hand.
In this case I block top pair and villain is bad. If he is somehow min raising a hand like 2 pair (which I also block), a set, a weirdly flatter overpaid or some kind of big combo draw I thought it would be a disaster not to get as much money in now as possible before some kind of scare card kills my action.
On the other hand he basically announced he's going to leave, the raise seems weak, and he is somewhat stationy so if I make a small raise maybe I get max value from a weak jack or like pocket tens that he just can't fold.
Is this a spot to make a small reraise or do i just bomb it and hope he gets stubborn or has a hand that pays me off?
If I had 88 here would that change things given that there would be full combos of top pair? I'm also wondering how I would play aces given this action. Would I still bet/3b? Aces are basically the same as 33 on this board.
