Flopped nuts vs. Nit - how to max value?

$1/3 hero playing very LAG. Don't normally LAG but table was loose passive so it seemed appropriate. In control of table. Very friendly game, several regs, playing 6-7 handed.

V is late 50's woman. Nice lady, basic understanding of game but super nitty and MUBsy.

V in BB, H on BTN

Folds to H, raises to $9 w/ K10o. SB folds, V takes a couple of seconds and calls.

Flop ($17)
QdJd9c

V checks, Hero? (H has no diamond). V is tight, trying to get her to pay me with an absolute cooler is going to be difficult. Hero checks back the flop.

Turn ($17)
Ac

V leads for $15, Hero?

The board is now double suited, so obviously you have to raise as more than half the deck will either kill your action or give your opponent a free card. Raise to 40.

When you bet the flop against this V, what do you expect V to do? What range would she have to have for this to be a 3-streets of value hand? What range is a 1 or 2 street range? Or 0 street? I ask because I don't think V is every going 3 streets here.

Re: Flopped nuts vs. Nit - how to max value?

Flop check is terrible. QJ9 smashes a calling range. You're gonna get called by all sorts of 2P+, 1 pair, pair+draws, naked OESDs, naked FDFDs.

If V has no ability to call a flop bet, there are few cards that can come that will change that.

Additionally, your hand is its strongest it can get, I tend to play flopped nut straights a little quicker on wet boards

AP OTT, raise to 35

Re: Flopped nuts vs. Nit - how to max value?

I would have just bet flop. She won't pay you without a cooler, but your hand isn't so strong that you can let her improve. Basically the only way she improves to a strong, second best hand is if she binks a set on the turn, but more likely if she's drawing to improve it's because she has a flush draw and can beat you.

Have to raise turn. I'd make it $50.

Mat - that's where my head was. 1/2 the deck kills the action, only value (if any) is hitting pot on the turn. Even a brick river doesn't help me (doesn't hurt either but I don't think it loosens her up).

Against 'normal' player I agree I'd pound the flop because I'll get called by draws but I don't think she'd call on a draw unless it was a nut/nut combo.

I do like the idea that really there are very few turn cards that make her more likely to call without catching me.

flop check is terrible and he listed all the reasons why.

As played raise. You got a fantastic turn card which she could have if she didn't connect with the board and it's draw heavy so she won't fold often.

I think you're right, smallish flop c-bet probably would have been smarter.

Re: Flopped nuts vs. Nit - how to max value?

Spoiler
I raised to $50 on the turn for all the reasons listed about. She went in the tank, got MUBsy, ignored the fact I've raised 35% of the pots and declares "I guess you have the straight" and folds. Says she had AJ and turned Aces up. Hard to believe anyone would fold that to a LAGgy player but I sort of believe she had it.

Re: Flopped nuts vs. Nit - how to max value?

well, even if she folded AJ here, she most likely calls you down if you just take a standard bet/bet/bet line.
If she isnīt lying, you just won the minimum against the range you are targeting (and would have obv won even less against all the JT and blaggablagga combinations)

So if she's not going to continue unless she has the nut draw you let her see the turn for free???

Sorry, but that is a bad way to think about it. If she's not going to continue unless she has the nut draw or a made hand, you have to bet the flop. DUCY?

Jfc that's terrible. Gotta love the soul read that's correct. Look on the bright side though, you raise here with a lot of hands that are crushed by 2P and she still folds

Re: Flopped nuts vs. Nit - how to max value?

If villain is that nitty you don't make your money by hitting hands. You make your money by bluffing them off hands on the flop and turn. Get heads up to the flop and bet all but the worst flops, most turns and only continue on river if you have a hand or the situation is particularly favorable.

Re: Flopped nuts vs. Nit - how to max value?

Best flop to bet with the nuts in history. Worst flop check in history. I mean really, why? Your hand is not going to improve. You have the nuts. Any K, T, 8, diamond, or board pairing card is bad either for killing your action or reducing the strength of your hand. That's half the deck!

Start by betting $20-25 on the flop. She's either got a hand she's gonna put some money in with or she has nothing and will fold anyway.

Agree. I pillaged the table unchecked for several hours doing exactly that.

Re: Flopped nuts vs. Nit - how to max value?

The problem is that if (1) you raise her and (2) the next card doesn't improve her hand, you're not collecting anything more. So the answer, I think, is to raise OTT as much as you believe she will call.

General rule, I play flopped straights fast, especially if there is a flush draw present. Your straight isn't getting any better. Bet it now.

Re: Flopped nuts vs. Nit - how to max value?

Playing straights fast is almost always better. LLSNL players don't believe that you flopped a straight and consistently level themselves into calling with lesser hands. OP raised from the button and has been playing a lot of hands. His range for cbetting this board is an ocean wide. You don't have to bomb it, but you do need to bet.
