2/5 - 500 max
hero has been at table for about an hour or about 3 orbits.
Villian (500) - has been involved in about 8 hands. Raised about 4 and limped about 4. Only saw him showdown 1 hand which was AJ for TPTK on a prettty wet board HU. Looks like a TAG but playing as many hands OOP as IP. Don't really consider V as a very good player at this point. Appears to be somewhat standard 2/5 player. Has yet to 3!
Hero (325) - TAG style - has been involved in about 4 hands - no show downs and has yet to drag a pot
hero opens for 25 UTG+1 with A
HJ calls and V in CO 3! to 65
I though 65 was a smallish 3! especially with 2 already in for 25 and 3 yet to act. I took this to mean 1 of 2 things. 1) AA 2) not fluent in 3!ing or how to play TT or JJ
At this point with the limited knowledge i have I put V on TT+, AK with an emphasis on AA because of the size of his 3!
hero calls and HJ folds - Hu to the flop
>>>>> how many prefer a 4! here. I thought only KK or AA would call/shove at that point and since I tilted his range a bit heavier on AA because of his 3! sizing, I did not want to consider folding yet.
effective stack 260 pot 160
1) ck/shove (if checked behind (not likely) it would make for an interesting turn action of turn bricks)
2) ck/fold (I hate this one as I have a fair amount of equity)
3) bet and shove if raised (bet size to induce raise or set good odds)
4) shove - I not a big fan of shoving as it would fold most of the hands I am ahead of
if V has AA - hero is ~ 2:1 dog (9 outs)
if V has KK - its a flip (12 outs)
if V has QQ- hero is a favorite (15 outs)
if V has AK - hero is big fav on a FR
please comment on PF anf flop action with bet size reasoning please
