So a semi-interesting spot. 5/10.
I have about $700, villain has about $900. I do not have personal history with villain but I do know he plays the larger 5/10 game in the pit from time to time. He's about 50, seems competent. Another 5/10 pit reg approached him trying to get a pit game started (there wasn't one running at the time) and villain and two other guys from my table sign up on an interest list. Villain has been pretty tight and straightforward the entire time I've been at the table. He hasn't raised a lot of hands and hasn't called many (if any, IDR) of my opens.
We're 7 handed. I open to $30 with A
from UTG+1. Villain flats OTB.
Flop ($75): T
I imagine villains flatting range is pretty tight vs my EP open and this board doesn't hit that flatting range a whole lot. He probably just folds most of the time vs a cbet but I elect to check. Checking probably isn't ideal but my equity vs any thing he holds is pretty good so I don't mind giving a rare free card here. In retrospect I don't think checking is ideal, if we cbet and he folds no big deal, but for the times villain does have a hand I'd like to build a pot asap before I improve as improving may kill my action.
Villain checks behind.
Turn ($75): J
I lead for $40. Villain raises to $140 without much hesitation. Given his image and the confidence I'm feeling from the raise he just made, I think he really only has Qx or KQ here. If he has Qx I'm freerolling the river, so I'd like to put more money in now. I can get another bet out of him and set up a nice river spot should a spade peel off. On the other hand, if he has KQ I'm toast but I have a redraw.
Thoughts on reraising a competent semi-nit vs just flatting?
I can flat the raise, c/c blank rivers, c/r spade rivers or lead spade rivers.
I can reraise the turn, if he flats I can lead spade rivers and c/c blanks.
And if we actually get 4b/jammed into after reraising vs this guy, should we be calling or folding?
