utg has 88
utgp2 has KK
how the **** does KK call for 300bbs?
biggest pot in history of room. used to have 200 2/5 as largest game
This is going to sound results oriented, but Im going to call a decent % of the time to such an overjam, because his hand looks like what it is and to a novice player, the best ways in their mind to play semibluffs and get them to fold is to go huge, rather then set up a turn shove.
2/5 in a straddled pot (10). A plethora of limpers, I raise to 70 with ATo. Only get called by one hand, a slightly tilted reg who plays ok but is prone to spazz and call raises OOP too often but will raise preflop with most "good" hands. Effective stacks are around 480 preflop.
FLOP: JTx rainbow
He checks, I think for a bit and check.
TURN: 9 brings a spade draw.
He jams 410 into around 200. I think for a bit and call. I lose to a 10 outer.

If I had 88 in that spot I'd happily semi-bluff C/R... Only thing is I'd just size the C/R about 550... which leaves me a 950 shove OTT
This looks a lot scarier to me then anything else...
