5-10NL Borgata QQ

Roughly 2 years ago

Villain is some insta-gram balla. I forget his IG or his real name but he's one of those SLAG/TAG players who posts $2k chip stacks and his balla $6k wins at 5-10NL on the insta-gram for all his balla friends to see

I have the queens in EP/MP and pop it to 30. Balla 3bets to 110. I put my foot down and let him know I have a big hand and wanna bet big money so I pop it back up to 330 and he calls because balla's don't fold in position.

I'm kinda nitty, weird...yeah weird! (nickname rofl I forgot that was actualy my nickname here @ borgata rofl....weird!!!!!) young?? white dude 5-10 reggy?


Flop T 8 4 with a two

I don't have Q (I don't think...bah!!! idk so hard to remember from 2 year ago)

We are like 2100 deep to start hand and I don't really wanna put in 200bb versus this guy with QQ here because he's good enough to get away from worse but might be aggro enough to fire away if he thinks I'll give up). I've never really played any big pots with him in the past but I've maybe seen him show a bluff once at 2-5NL (not kinda irrelevant to this hand I guess).

Hero Check
Balla check

Turn 6

Hero Check

Balla bet $400

I cawl (fast kinda??!!)

River
T

Hero Check
BALLA bet $800 in black chips (and quick!!)

Oh sheez did my plan backfire? I gave him the free cards and a chance to make trips or a weird 6s full?

Re: 5-10NL Borgata QQ

Looks like you're still mad at the guy .

Preflop, I'd just call, no need to 4-bet OOP with a hand that doesn't do great in 4bet pots and that you legitimately don't want to play for stacks.

Flop is great for our hand, should bet ~60-70% the pot.

As played i'm snap calling river.

Re: 5-10NL Borgata QQ

4bet size too big - don't really need to go this big

I'd go $250 or just call pre. 4bet is probably fine as long as you have a decent 4bet range and it's not only QQ+

Flop id start with a bet of around $200

Turn not good and checking and betting are both fine. If you bet i'd go around $500/fold. You get owned when he has a hand like Ac6c or Ac9c but whatever.

River is obvious check.

as played you shouldn't fold river, the flush draw bricked and he got a really good card to represent. If he has it, you're gonna have to pay him.

Re: 5-10NL Borgata QQ

River seems like a standard call as played, I prefer leading turn

Re: 5-10NL Borgata QQ

I think you should call river. You did check both the flop and the turn so it wouldn't be unreasonable for someone to try and bluff here.

What grown adult refers to themselves as Dora the Explorer?

Isn't it generally correct to use a bigger 4bet size when deep and OOP?
