Just played in this game for the first time.
Anyways I bought in 500 and proceeded to get AA and KK a lot that won medium-large pots and flopped sets on dry boards that paired OTT making TP seem strong.
50 minutes later I'm up to 2250 and I get in an odd spot despide my image.
Image: The only hand I lost at showdown (50 minutes with a VPIP > 30%, lots of showdowns) was AxK
Qx preflop after I had accidentally nitrolled myself in the previous hand.
History: not short
Quiet period occurs where I was not picking up QQ+ every rotation (running bad, lol). I pick-up QQ in the SB, folds to the only real villain at the table(980, I cover) at the table opens to 15 from the CO, BUT calls 15, I...
The BB is a total fish short-stacker that doesn't have a fold button preflop vs me but has only 80 left. I felt like he would squeeze get it in light if I called.
Villain opens a **** ton from LP so I think I should have squeezed vs villain but I decided to play differently, I had been playing all my value hands pretty fast. Without the fish I 3bet/??? like 75% of the time, and flat 25%.
I call 10, BB fish ships it for 80. Villain asks how much total, studies the pot for a couple moments then announces 180.
It's now 165 to me with 800 behind.
I have an insane image but what do we do, all 3 options seem ok.
At the time I was thinking Call>Fold>Ship.
If I call he can cbet the flop with a wide range and we call and get stacks. However on a lot of blanks we are getting it in with a crai,b/c,c/c line soo...
If I fold It can't be terrible but it's probably the nittish/-EV/low-variance route.
If I ship it vs what I perceive as a balanced range that will responded by folding lots and calling with better and AK and getting away playing the dominated portion of his range correctly.
Villain had just shipped a huge pot after he re-bought after I stacked him.
I had KK in BB it was 4 limped to me, SB checks I make it 30 (lots of shorties that hadn't rebought after playing in pots vs me) get 4 calls.
Flop: 969R (150)
SB fish looks me down for 5 seconds then leads 190 (390). I tank fold with 3 players behind with the only draw being the obvious gutter. Villain ships it for like 4xx. SB has 66 and BUT has 98.
Turn comes case 9 and the villain he ships a 1K pot after getting it in really badly. (I would never raise in this spot lol)
