Nitty tight player at the table. The kind everyone else on 2+2 loves to hate. S'ok, I be a hatee and you be a hater...
2/5 NL, MGM Grand
has been playing tight, has opened up a few pots but retreated in the face of significant playback. Stack of $600 is now about $305. Table wild and loose, lots of huge pots on bluffs and second best draw hands, blah, blah.
is UTG and limps, Hero
- raises to 20, cold called by CO, Button, SB, BB and V1
leads out for 15, Hero
raises to $90 <corrected>, fold, Button
flats, the BB
reraises to $235, V1
insta-annouces all-in for $300 and change...
I already know someone has 7,4o, but I'm not good enough and/or not stacked enough to lay down top set here, and +/- have the right odds to fill up anyway so I auto-call / get it in.
announces he's all in for his $300 some stack, and it's a messy 4 way all-in. All hands are exposed.
and BB both
have 7,4o which somehow survives both the combi/spade draw of the button
and the board pairing for Hero
Chips are called for.
600 behind, chips on the way, next hand Hero
is now UTG with: A
Raise to 35, called by Button
Flop - $105 in pot, 9
leads $105, hoping it looks like a tilt bet (maybe it is?).
smooth calls $105 and BB folds.
Turn - $290: J
The somewhat conservative button
has just flatted my "tilt bet" on a paired board, and that actually scares me.
: Checks, Button
now bets $105. Chance that Button
value bets a 9 here is almost 100%, especially if he puts me on an overpair. He still might be doing some value-pot-control-bet
type move with a strangely played QQ or KK that didn't reraise preflop, and also with a lot of other pocket pairs, so I decide to flat call the turn and try and see a cheap showdown.
River - $500: 4
Well, if I was ahead on the turn, I guess I'm still ahead now, but right about now I'm thinking I'm way ahead or way behind, and probably way behind. Hero
: Checks. Button
vomits into a cup, says "nice hand, I call" and Button
Chips are still coming, and Hero
is now wondering if he's actually maybe on tilt now and still thinking about last two hands, and is now in the BB with a stack still-to-come of about $140 left. Hero
It's limped in several places and Hero sees flop for free.
Flop - $30: 8
leads out at pot with $30, everyone folds except the guy with JJ from last hand whom is now the CO
Turn - $90: A
checks hoping that the CO
will move him all-in with almost any holding, but the CO
River - $90: 6
shoves for remaining notional still-to-come-stack. CO
says "I'm so sorry" and insta-calls, tabling 6
insta-mucks with a high pitch peal of hysterical laughter, dealer looks startled.
Chips arrive from floor manager, Hero
gives floor manager $2, instructs floor manager to keep remaining chips in rack and send over to the nice gentleman in seat 3.
