Villain 1 - SB ($350) Late twenties muscle shirt guy with hot girlfriend railing him in empty seat at table. Waitress just delivered food and she is feeding him french fries to the amusement of other players. He seems to be playing OK but somewhat loose passive and noticably "defensive" any time he folds. Ie. he seems to be explaining for the benefit of his girl that he is not being pushed around but instead making good decisions.
Villain 2 - BB ($180) 20 something hasn't played many hands. Limped a few times and opened for $11 once with AK winning a modest pot at showdown w/ TPTK. He has continued to the turn in a number of limped pots before folding.
Hero - CO ($410) Sat at table about an hour ago with $200. Have won mostly small to medium sized pots playing somewhat passively but restealing twice from really bad Asian bluffing guy. I have been open raising more in the past 20 minutes though.
1 limper to hero who Makes it $12 with A
V1 (SB) Calls
V2 (BB) Raises to $25
Hero calls $25
V1 calls $25
I put V2's 3betting range squarely on QQ+. V1 could have a pretty wide calling range here. Any suited A, Suited or connected broadways maybe some sort of smaller Suited connector or small to medium PP.
Flop ($72) 6
V1 leads for $15
V2 raises to $65
I am focused on my developing erection and how to take both stacks. Of course 9
is getting my stack and is at least a part of V1s range.
I am certain V2 has an overpair here. Judging from V1's physical reaction I think he likes this action but is clearly trying to gage where I am at. I suspect V1 hit this flop pretty hard. Maybe a set, maybe even 99 with the 9 of
If I re-pop it here I am thinking V1 will come along but I am not sure V2 is committed given this flop.
If I play it slow and make it look weak like maybe I am drawing and just flat I can see if V1 wants to jam over top. If he flats we have a $270 pot and can look to get it in on the turn.
OTT A paired board, a 5
will probably suck. Any other
could kill any future action.
What is the best line to take here?
