blinds are 600/1200/200.. I had run my stack up to 120 k then made a move in one hand and it didnt work so was down to 102k and change when we came back from dinner.. hand shortly after i completed the bb with J4ss for min raise with like 5 other players in the hand. I called flop and turn on jack high flush and straightening board but folded when K hit river ..villain showed KK and was NOT the pfr but first caller..obviously trying to trap but it cost me 25k ..so now I am down to around 63k in chips when this hand happens..
villain opened.. although it seems like he might be lagging it up it has been hard to tell because my table has not shown down hardly any hands.. he raises in utg1 .. I have A
: and call from three to his left so mp 2 or so.. sb calls and bb folds.. his raise was to 2700 which was pretty standard for him. He started the hand with about 200k maybe a little less.. so first off is my hand better to 3!? I had been calling and playing post flop so my inclination was to call but want to hear your thoughts
as usual he cbets.. in fact now that I remember I think he had a very very high cbet percentage.. also of note that the hands he has showndow were all legit value holdings.. he even bet river huge with QQ on fourcard runout when vil raised flop but check back turn when what seemed like an inconsequential card hit.. final board was 63295 and he bet pot and won ... so he cbets his standard smaller sizing.. I did notice once that he bet much bigger when he shut things down so I assumed he had something.. I call.. with my hand and image I am wondering if its better to take control of the hand and raise.. I had raised other flush draws in other spots at my previous tables but I was alot deeper and I was much more sure of villains tendencies to fold or was weak. Here I was torn with spewing off on a draw vs stealing with alot of equity.. After his cbet of 3500 and my call there is there is over 20k in the pot now..
rolls off and now he bets 15k.. I think that if I missed my chance on the flop can I rep the kind or even get him off something else by shipping? after the call on the flop and preflop I have just about 55k ish left... but then again his bet and whats in the pot would seem hard for him to fold any value hand.. so I call hoping for a jack or any spade..
river is an os whatever brick.. and he thinks and just bets enough to put me all in.. I sadly fold.. :-( wondering if I had missed a spot to accumulate chips without having to realize my equity..ie playing a little too passively because it was the main event ..OR did I play it fine to preserve my stack and survive..
all comments welcome!!! except no trolling please..lol...
