1-3 200 max buy-in Tulalip
Villain: I'm slowly becoming a reg here and I've already sorted out some of the good regs vs the rest of the pack. Villain is one of the good regs. Young 20's Persian guy, clean cut with trimmed facial hair and newly cut hair. He's here every day (his own words). From my own experience I'd describe him as a TAG with LAG tendencies. He'll float some pots, bet 3 into a 20+ large multi-way pot just to see if he can take it down, seems to love to get a good deal and will call raises if there are multiple callers with ATC. His bet sizing can be on the large end of value town, 25 into a 30ish pot, etc. Seems like a very tricky but tight and winning player. He's kinda a fan of being short stacked it seems sometimes, not always staying capped.
Hero: 20's white player with glasses and a green hoodie. I've played with him 3 times, the second being just last night. We talk some poker together, I'd like to think we respect each other's game. Probably seen by villain as TAG on the aggressive side. Villain and I already tangled in a hand this session, one of the first.
2 early limpers, CO raises to 10, BTN flats, villian in SB flats, hero in BB flats. Limpers fold. Flop: Q
(44 pot). Checks to BTN who bets 10, villain calls as does hero. Turn: Q
(74 pot). Villain donk bets for 35 with 85ish behind, hero reraises to 75, BTN folds, Villain AI hero calls. Hero flips over K
while river bricks and villain shows J
. Said he thought hero was on a draw.
Since than hero has been in only two big hands, one villain saw hero lose other villain missed while hero won. Stack has been slowly rebuilt after 3 hours to 260. Villain covers by 20. On to the hand!
Hero dealt Q
UTG limps for 3, villain limps for 3 1 seat ahead of hero, hero raises to 15, folds to BB who flats 15, folds back to villain who repops it to 45. Hero thinks for about 20 seconds before flatting, BB folds. Note there is a 4bet cap at the casino, if hero had raises it to any amount that would be the final round of betting preflop. This is the first time villain has 3bet preflop
Villian bets 100, hero ???
Any and all comments are appreciated.
