I always feel like everyone is my friend when I am in town. Maybe different perspective being in town single, than living in town married. Seems like Vegas is a place to make quickest friends in the USA.

I have a question about this hand if you don’t mind sharing. Admittedly, often my only plan for the turn is to reevaluate based on the action, turn card and so on. My question is how do you handle the turn here if deep stack reg just flats your raise and checks to you on a brick turn?

There are several reasons for my question that I won’t bore anyone with at this time. A couple other miscellaneous things that come to mind for me here is the fact that this was a limped pot and the button / original bettor is still left to act behind me.
Yay someone finally asked about a hand. Im gonna kinda answer your backwards. First the button was a habitual pos. Better and just his mannerisms said he didnt have anything and was throwing a bet out. Utg reg had checked raised a few times in this type of situation with no one ever playing back at him really. Most of the time his check raises with strong hands were a lot bigger, I had witnessed a cr of a 17 bet to 85 a cr of a 12 bet to 56 each of those times he showed down a big hand. Other time he had done what he did this time small cr that looked like he was just trying to pick up the pot and had shown down a draw or tpwk.

He didn't limp alot also raised pp and big Ax from any pos. So that with the small raise size and the fact that he limped took sets and ak, aq hands out of his range. Also button had about 340to380 in front of him and reg would raise more to try and build a bigger pot with a big hand so be can eventually shove river. so tbh I felt really good about being able to just take the pot down on the flop.

If he flats the flop raise I'm reevaluating on the turn but honestly firing most turns cards. Any diamond, 7, face card, shoot almost any card that doesn't pair the the board is getting fired. I don't think he is peeling with a2 or a5 ever here so im not scared of a strait card coming either so I'm keeping that pressure on. If he calls a turn bet well shoot I'm proly shutting down river.

When it comes down to it my range just looks so strong and the fact that him and I are the only 2 strong players at the table its really hard for him to continue on the flop and especially on the turn with out a set. Which given his style of play was highly unlikely but given my style of play (I'm way more passive with small pp pre which he had even commented on earlier) is a huge part if my range with the story I'm telling. One thing I've noticed if the grinders try to stay out of each others way and u can take advantage of them in situations like this.

And **** some times when your new to a game/city u gotta show the regs/grinders that its your table from here on out and that there's a new sheriff in town. Ya feel me. Anyways blast away.

Pain in the butt responding on the phone, hard to reread what I've wrote. If all this comes across as a mess my bad

If you have an iPhone there's a great 2+2 forum app. I actually prefer the app over reading/posting from my home computer.

Prolly have it on android store too.

How is the Venetian nowadays? Every once a while I give it a try (last time was Jan 2012)...and every time it's the same issue w/ the trash on the ground and under the table. Like WTF? It's a nice casino, can't they hire a couple more minimum wage dudes to sweep/clean the poker room?

Let me know if that's still an issue....

Cheers,

S

Just out of curiosity. If you hit more than 1 poker room on your outing then you are counting a new session each time right?

Only thing that really matter is your profit divided by the time you spend at the table.

Opinions please.
240 stack villain covers by like 80.
Villain reads: none really he is new to table. saw him play one hand so far where he had aq on a q hi board nothing special
His reads one: none I would think I haven't played a hand since he got here

I open to 8 from mp with kq off. He calls. He is on my direct left, folds around. Flop is kq10 rainbow. I bet 12 he calls. Turn is 6h putting 2h on board. I Bet 25 he raises to 75.
during hand read: on flop when I bet he kinda eyed my stack

Ok your play is, go

Mostly folding. Sometimes jamming. Pretty villian dependent. To an unknown mostly folding

i hate your turn sizing, he can easily misinterpret your smallish turn bet as weakness and bump it up here even as a weird semi bluff, or even have QT-KT in his value range
im a fish id prolly call and call most rivers

I like what Norcaljew said, he could think your weak here, but you have no reads on this guy, there are a few sets out there and A-j. Really with no reads on this guy we cant really tell you what to do, Jam? Fold? Call-Call? So what did you do?
