I agree it looks like OP is getting value-towned, but if OP is calling turn, I think he should be calling just about all rivers to moderate-sized bets, too. OP should think that MP knows the river is a gin bluff card for him, and that he's going to bet a huge portion of his range on that river. When I was watching the hand, I just didn't give MP credit for 3-barreling a flush draw there, and it'd be hard for him to have any Ax hand except AK. I think it should have been a call, but you can't always think above level 1 and be profitable at 1/2 at FW either.
Based on that information I snap call.
I would guess QQ/JJ shows up here a lot.
He bets the flop, hero calls. With the UTG limp, that looks like a weak K or flush draw. Maybe AK, but unlikely.
Turn bricks, hero checks, so stabby mcstab pants takes another shot to get hero off of the draw. Hero calls. Villain is thinking that AK would have announced itself by now.
When the A
hits and hero checks again, everything lines up great for the villain. He knows the hero could not have been on the nut draw, based on previous action AK is unlikely, and most players bet the flush when it hits if they were drawing to it. The A caused shrinkage for any weak K.
This is why KJ sucks OOP. Hero had the best hand, but was at a disdvantage throughout against an aggressive player.
I am a pretty big nit, but if this guy comes across as a player, I likely fold this pre. If I don't I am trying to take control of the hand by the turn, if not on the flop.
