$1/$3 at the local casino. The game has a mixture of older players and two big calling stations to my right.
Hero (CO, $305): Just got back from dinner break, so only a few people know my image, which is, due to cards, rock-tight so far.
V1 (SB, $500): Older white person, came in during my dinner break so I have no reads on him so far.
V2 (HJ, $600): Middle-aged asian guy. The biggest fish at the table. Limp-calls a lot PF, including already cold-calling a 3-bet to $30 from the blinds after UTG+1 raised to $13 and the BTN reraised to $30 (he check/folded a J-8-xss flop that hand). He raises his big hands PF; so far hes shown down 10-10 and A-Qo when hes raised PF and gone to SD. In the A-Qo hand, he ended up shoving a 9-high board after raising pre and betting the flop, and was called by A-9, but he rivered a Q to scoop the pot.
Preflop ($4): HJ+1 limps, V2 limps, Hero has K
and raises to $18, SB reraises to $40, all folds to V2, who calls $40, Hero calls $22.
Flop ($121): Q
SB bets $40, V2 calls, Hero raises to $95, SB folds, V2 goes all-in, Hero has $170 behind. Hero??
Thoughts on the hand:
Preflop: After two limps from calling stations, KQs is a perfect hand to isolate to build a pot in position. Once the SB 3-bet, I planned on folding even though I was receiving good odds and was in position since I didn't want to play a pot heads up against an older person's strong 3-betting range. Once the fish cold-called $40, I felt it was +EV to call the 3-bet IP with a hand that flops well and play cautiously against the SB postflop.
Flop: The SB's $40 bet seemed pretty weak to me, and I felt like V2 would probably call the flop with any pair since hes been a pretty big station so far. Also, there are a lot of turn cards I don't like to see like an A, J, 10, 9, or diamond, so I decided to raise the flop. I made a small raise so that if the SB shoved, I could still begrudgingly fold, and if V2 called, I could shove most turn cards for a healthy $170. Once the SB folded, I felt great about my hand until V2 shoved. I discounted A-Q, K-K, and A-A because from our history he didn't seem trappy PF (plus since the older gentleman likely had AK pre and I have a king, the # of AA and KK combos is significantly reduced). Because of this, I really only put him on 8-8, 4-4, and a bunch of NFDs and SD + FDs.
1) Do you fold to the small 3-bet PF, even though the biggest fish just limp-called a 13x raise and you have position on all opponents with a hand that flops well?
2) Do you raise flop (and fold to a shove from the 3-bettor) for the reasons I gave above, or do you think its more profitable to call and reevaluate turn?
3) Do you call V2s 3-bet shove OTF?
