I'm an Animal

My image is pretty agro. I've open been 3 betting liberally pre-flop but the cards/players have been dictating it. Haven't shown down much- either mucking or winning without showdown. Up about a rack.

Villian seems reasonabel when he raises pre-flop, altough I saw him J10o in MP. There was a great hand where it when limp limp he called with 94o on the button, ended up turning trip 9s and putting 0 dollars more into the pot.

Anyway, he opens UTG 7 handed, and it folds to me in the CO and I peel back the cards and he says "are you going to 3 bet again" and I say nothing and 3 bet the AK and it goes heads up to the flop.

Flop comes J107

And he c/r and I 3 bet and he calls.

Turn is the Q

And he c/r and I 3 bet.

Re: I'm an Animal

Interesting hand considering anybody who says "your not gonna 3-bet again" likely wouldnt mind being 3 betted.

You are in great shape against anything other than the nut flush and I wouldnt be suprised that villian is holding the same and with or without the A of hearts

Haha, he's got AA w/ the NO MORE HEARTS! Then he c/c's your river bet bec. he just can't fold and bangs the table when he sees your hand. Yeah, I like your play.

well, technically, not exactly one. AKx beats you by a little. and this guy can raise UTG with other crap hearts. but i agree that the 3bet is good

Re: I'm an Animal

I didnt explaint his all that well. The flop was something like 937 and he ended up 3 betting it and then the turn came another 9 and he just called a bet and the same on the river so it wasnt that horrible except for the callign with the 94 preflop.

Re: I'm an Animal

cgrohman--

So, by "not put another dollar in the pot," you mean "put two more big bets in the pot"?

Yes, 3-bet the turn, because almost nothing beats you, and almost nothing folds, either now or on the river.

Once you get 4-bet, it's bad news. Unfortunately I don't think you can fold. But this won't happen enough that you should be questioning the 3-bet.

Re: I'm an Animal

The 4 bet is sick, and all we can hope for is to chop or see a beautiful A come on the river thus voiding his hand and giving us the pot.

Hero wins the pot, or "the prize". He also wins the prize by playing well.

Sure, just come to vegas next week.
