Pocket 3s in position

1/3

V1 ~$800 (MABG) - Opens a lot of hands, probably ~35%, likes to double barrel flop and turn with mediocre holdings, seems to be doing pretty well mostly by hitting straights and 2-pairs with the bottom of his open range to fuel his barrelling. Donated ~$200 to hero by triple barreling on a 699QA board with a naked queen (into pocket 6s) Likes to straddle and 3! light (made it $56 with 55 UTG after a bunch of straddlers called)

V2 ~$190 Short stack lady. Seems to be a very straightforward rec player. Calls down with top pair or low 2-pair, folds to most aggression like a PSB on the turn without the nuts. Probably has at least a 5% spaz chance. 1 pot was about to leave the table not realizing the board runout made it a chop. Bought in at least once.

Hero ~$550 MAWG - has a somewhat tight image, not been running too well on cards, I'm almost certain all the hands won at the table never went to showdown except pocket 6s against V1. Definitely known to have a fold button.

OTTH (9-handed)

MP limps, V2 limps (HJ), Hero limps 33 in CO (expecting V1 to open against limpers and setmine with a reasonable bet), folds to V1 (BB) who makes it $13.

MP calls.
HJ calls.
Hero calls.

Flop: ($53) 349

V1 bets $55
MP folds
V2 (HJ) calls fairly quickly
Hero? ($168 in pot)

Raise to about $200. That will make the pot $368 and Villains will have $145 to call. Still gives decent but expensive odds for draws to continue.

Re: Pocket 3s in position

Well, if you put V2 all-in on the flop, she's getting the right price for a flush draw, even if V1 folds.
If you flat & V1 bets a non-spade turn, V1 should call her flush draw & then you can maybe draw more money out of V1 with a raise & maybe get a side pot going.

Raise to $170 on the flop. Then jam the other $370 in on the turn.

Re: Pocket 3s in position

I don't mind either a call or a raise on the flop. I put V1 mostly on air on the flop and I don't mind giving him a chance to hit top pair.

Obviously, if we call the flop we're hoping for a non-spade.

Well apparently he triple barreled on a 699QA board with a naked queen, so my guess is a resounding yes.... Clear jam.
