$5/10 at the Wynn/Encore in LV, NV. $3500 effective. As,Ac on Button. Memory's not perfect as this was about 2 1/2 weeks ago, but here goes:
Early position raises to 40, V in MP1 (looks like young pro, not much info otherwise) 3-bets to $140. Pretty standard 3-bet, happening a lot at the table, even light as we're super deep. Folds to me.
I wake up with A
on Button and 4-bet to $440 - (pot sized would have been 495). Folds around to V. V Calls.
$935 flop: K
V checks, I bet $450, V calls.
$1835 Turn: 2♦
V checks, I check back for pot control + not super concerned about opp having many flush or straight draws with my having 2 Aces for straight blockers and As blocking a ton of flush draws. Kind of way ahead/way behind. I can save a bet or two versus boats and I also want to get another bet out of AK, KQ suited or QQ.
$1835 River: 8
: for a completed flush and no straights.
V checks, I bet $900, V thinks a bit and shoves for $1710 more. $1710 to call to win $5345 for 3.13 to 1
He's clearly repping boats and flushes, the latter of which I block a ton of combos.
Listening to Bart's analysis over the past few months + seeing it in my live results, in 1/2 - 2/5 games basically nobody check-raise river bluffs. And in my low double-digit # of hours at 5/10 games in primarily local pro line-ups, I haven't seen a check-raise river bluff show down once except for the 1 time when I tried it into top set and lost a buy-in.
Based on this & needing to be good 1 out of 4.13 times, I folded. However, later in the night I couldn't stopping thinking that with how passively I played the hand, maybe I have to call off the river as the whole point of checking back the turn was to get him to pay me off with AK, KQ, or QQ. AK he could actually be raising for value, but I block a bunch. KQ, QQ, maybe TT, and maybe even QJ or JT he could be turning into a bluff. And he could obviously have KK or JJ here as well, thinking I can't call with 2 pair, but he can check and get me to value bet or bluff with worse, then raise and hope I can't fold 2 pair with pot odds.
