Live 15-30. 2-3 chip blinds.
Villain 1 is LAP, have played many hours with him.
Villain 2 is young player, who discussed strategy frequently with another player at the table. In one discussion he stated that the other player should have 5 bet his AK heads up from the BB and smoked any flop. Have never played a hand with him yet.
Folds to Hero who raises AcAs from MP. LAP villain cold calls directly to his left, it folds to BB who calls.
Flop is 963 rainbow. BB donks, Hero raises, LAP calls two cold, BB calls.
Turn is 2 of diamonds, putting two diamonds on board. BB donks again, Hero should...
raise, will hopefully get any draws to fold, BB probably is donking top 9x im not worried about LAP he on a two pair draw maybe, A6s, if BB3 bets youll have to go from there, but I am raising the turn everytime in this spot...
LAP is not LAP, it is LP... I used to make same mistake until this kind forum fixed it.
Raise turn. Perhaps also mark Villain 2 as a "fish" in your book. A good player might donk a set on this board, but then he would cap it and lead the turn. If he donked the 45 on the flop, he is most likely going to check raise the turn, right ? If villain 2 reraises, I think we still need to call the turn and fold rivers that don't improve us to a set or to two pair.
this seems worth raising again. He can have so many hands here. yes he could have you beat but he might call you down, or at least call your raise, with many weak hands that he decided to bet. you are also likely ahead of the late position player.
if he folds he forfeits his equity. if he calls he is paying double.
