10/20/40 at Aria. This hand is straddled but only about 1/3 of the people are straddling.
V1: Bruce from Horseshoe in Hammond. He's a rich businessman who is actually decent except for the fact that he is wayyyy too loose pre. I've seen him put a lot of chips in the pot with strong but not super strong hands when he thinks they're good, def not afraid to push all the chips in. 5500
V2: German who has busted his first 2k and reloaded and built it up to 8k, played really tight at first but now has been far more aggro now that he is deeper and he plays quite well. Made a hero fold 2k deep vs me with JJ (he said, and i believe) in the CO when he opened to 140 and i made it 380 otb with AA and bet 440 on 865ss flop and crammed the T turn on him. 7-8k
Hero: super loose, super aggressive, up about 10k on the session and playing a lot of hands. Been really friendly with V2 and know V1 pretty well, not sure if that plays much into the hand. 24k
Hero straddles, Hijack opens to 140, V1 calls otb, sb calls, V2 makes it 520 to go (first time he has 3b in 4 hours). I look down at K
, I think for a little while and flat because HJ and sb are both really tight and probably folding and bruce is never folding so I figure pretty often I get to play in position vs V2 and if I 4b I'm not sure how much action I get from V1 and don't really want to put 8k in pre vs him. Hero calls and best case scenario V1 calls and all else fold.
V1 leads 940
Hero tanks 30 seconds and calls
V2 tanks 10 seconds and goes all in for 4700 total
V1 tanks 4-5 minutes and calls, Let's assume 2300 behind
