My friend tells me I played this absolutely horribly. I think it was pretty creative. Either way, I may never see this again, but whatever.
We are playing a home game at a bachelor party, and my buddy is drunk (i have been drinking also). Now, he loves to bluff, and when he does so, he talks trash. But he is pretty smart, and acts about the same way when he has a monster - thus he does really well at our home games, because he gets a lot of folds when he is beat, but gets a lot of calls when he shoves with the nuts. When he has a mediocre hand that he wants to get to flop with (usually a mp or worse), he gets pretty stationy. The wetter the board the more aggressive he is with his solid hands.
we are playing $.25/.50, about 250bb deep.
I open to $5 w/ J
pre. he calls behind, along with the bachelor.
Hero bets $10, villain calls $10
Hero checks, villain checks
Here is where it gets interesting. I think for a few seconds. Based on his play, he probably doesn't have a draw as he would have bet it. I think he has a lower pocket pair.
Hero bets $15,
Villain raises and tells me to "get out of here with your jacks". Okay, so he has just read my hand. Fawk. Now what.
villain raises to $30.
I tank for a while. I still think i am ahead, and am pretty sure this is a bluff. So, I turn over my cards showing him my jacks, and say "fine, ass, but I know you don't have a K"
Hero raises to $45
No more than 2 seconds pass
Villain raises all in to $155
Hero snap calls
Villain knocks over his tequila and shows 2
So was my play totally bad, or just great based on my reads. I truly don't know right now, though I want to say it was the latter.
