Anyway, hes a pretty bad playing lag who will spew on dry bored textures and is capable of folding hands and getting value out of his hand.
This hand gets folded to me on the button. I raise q-10 in diamonds. Sb folds and my buddy in the big blind 3 bets. I call. (3.25 bb)
Flip: 9 5 2 Rainbow.
He bets I call (4.25) bb
Turn: q (competes rainbow) he bets i call
River 2 he bets I call.
So my question here is, is this hand more +EV to let him barrel off and me not valuetown myself when he has a better hand or is it a better play to raise the turn and hope to get a spite call from 66 to 1010 ak aj?
I think by not raising the turn you're just loosing value period.
If he 3b you ott then you might be able to find a fold as this is indicative of AA KK QQ AQ QJ QK 99 etc - is he really going to 3b you with JJ 99 AK AJ here? Seriously especially given the dynamic? He's thinking along the same lines you are --- HATER! So he just wants to valuerape you just as much you you wanna do the same to him. Just ram it up his poopchute and show him who's daddy!
edit: I agree that raising he river is too fps. I think it's sexy pho sho and seems more like a dagger in the heart than raising ott but I think from a strict value perspective raising ott is better.
