1/2 Top pair + FD OOP

1/2 $300 max buy in
Edgewater CA

Hero: 20's white male. Been fairly tight and haven't gotten out of line, also card dead so only been in 5-8 hands over the course of 3 hours. One hand had KK which I 3bet in SB and another hand I raised V2 IP with AKo and got three streets of value. V2 and V3 have seen these hands while V1 has only come recently and hasn't been paying much attention anyways. My image is probably tight/passive but thinking player, not partaking in the limping and check/folding on the flop as some of the table. Stack $580

V1: 20's white male. Sat down little under awhile ago and has been driving the action. Drunk and talkative, he's 3bet with 45s and raised preflop and than bet flop blind. LAG who knows the game but I wouldn't say he's a drooler, however is very much willing to gamble and has put money in when obviously behind. Stack $250

V2: 30's white male. Very touristy, older man who seems like a regular but not a good one. Has just been calling most times, rarely takes the initiative. In the AKo hand we were heads up, flop was K59r and he checked dark and called every street, 7 turn 2 river. Easily tilts, though at the present time he's been talking and joking with V1 so he seems calm right now. Loose and passive are good descriptors, limping and calling preflop and than usually folding on the flop. Stack $220

V3: 20's Asian male. Seems and plays like a reg, and takes extra care in his image. Takes the same amount of time for every decision, which is usually 5-10 seconds of thought before slowly pushing out his chips. On the tighter side but is aggressive. Specifically had a hand vs one of the lesser skilled players at the table in which V3 raised preflop, bet flop when checked to him, bet turn when it was checked to him heads up against bad player, and then on river when backdoor flush came in and was checked to him again made a big bet, 150 or so into ~250ish pot, which the bad player snap shipped for just 40 or so more and V3 folded. Obviously capable of bluffing and is positionally aware. I'd say he's the best player at the table. TAG with more on the tighter side, but it's hard to judge since he keeps leaving the table. Stack $700 or a little more

Note: V1 has been blind raising to 10 whenever the UTG player straddles, in this hand is his 3rd time doing it. From how he plays and the dynamic of the table it's clear that everyone is just calling the 10 to hopefully hit against him.

On to the hand!

UTG straddles for 5, V1 in UTG+1 blind raises to 10, V2 in UTG+2 calls, folds to V3 on BTN who calls, Hero in SB calls with Q9, BB calls, UTG calls.

Flop: Q52 (~$60)

Hero checks, BB checks, UTG checks, V1 checks, V2 bets out 22, V3 takes his usual time and raises to 55, Hero...?

Important to note that I looked to my left and BB and UTG are waiting for me to act so they can fold.

Re: 1/2 Top pair + FD OOP

If its AQ hes prob raising his button pre. Could see 55, 22, maybe KQ and flush draws making this raise. A call here announces your flush draw. If the diamons hits hes prob not paying you so not great implied odds

Did you see what V2 had in your AK hand you beat him with? His range is really anywhere since tourists love to set mine, but he coukd also have any Q. Tough spot. Folding is SOO nitty but i think I might.

He did not show but by his dark checks and snap calls on every street I highly suspected KQ

The thing i dont like here is i think theres a good chance youre drawing to a diamond. I also dont like that short stack acts next. Unless he was completelt bluffing, hes probably shoving if you call. Then v3 could isolate by re-shoving. Bad spot, bad position, plenty if other hands for you to take $.

Horrible spot. It's quite possible one of them has a better queen and one of them has a better flush draw.

If you put in a raise, you can still get away from the hand, vis-a-vis V3. The problem is V2.

Do you think V3 is isolating here? If so, I would just move in half my stack. The worst case is you go to the felt against a set, but there's already $140 in the middle.
