Playing top pair readless PART 2
August 8, 2012 - 06:40
1st hand readlessEffective Stacks: 75bb Blinds 10/20
Pre-Flop (30, 2 players)
Hero is SB
Hero raises to 60, villain reraises to 180, Hero calls 120
Flop (360, 2 players)
villain bets 160, Hero calls 160
Turn (680, 2 players)
villain bets 300, Hero calls 300
River (1280, 2 players)
villain bets 840 and is all in, Hero ?
And again how should we play this hand like it is and how the board was more draw heavier like QhTh7s [5s] [2d]
Remember its readless 1st hand

Okay now 3bet pot. 3betpot =
Okay now 3bet pot. 3betpot = shorter stack to pot ratio = stack off with less.
pot is 360 stack 1320 or so, TP2K is the nuts, fistpumping. if the pot was 80 this would not be the case. only hands that beat us are AA KK AQ, Which he'll have but we don't assume he 3bets only the nuts, else we wouldn't be calling KQ(we hit one of the best flops possible for our hand to be likely to be good).
I think standard might be to flat this, only bad card is an ace, turn could go either way since the pot is pretty big I'd probably just shove. Personally I'd raise the flop just because villain cbet so small and I also bluffraise this if I think I'll get folds. I'd raise to 450 or so. I think minreraising to 320 or a little bigger would also be a decent option, you'll get tons of calls plus probably induce more, but I prefer to build the pot a little bit quicker to give hands like TT less of a chance to get away or give him a good stacksize to ship on me. I don't like to flat an underbet on such a dry board because I think with air because I think with air/missed that let's him cheapily take the pot down when I've got nothing + get a free card. The more likely he is to keep firing the turn (and the bigger) the better flatting becomes. And there's 520 in the pot and if an ace turns which happens 8% (if he doesn't have it) sucks hard. Also I think random that cbets a dry board small is less likely to want to get involved and keep firing. And we might get more value now from 88-JJ and AK might get curious.
On the wet example def RAISE, committing size without offering too too great odds, to 480 or so, tons of turncards can destroy your hand and you can get value from draws including ak aj NOW. Tons of turncards destroy the value of your hand and turn your hand into a bluffcatcher or marginal valuebet. This is an action board.
