Villain ($1300) - Probably 30-something. Mostly an unknown. Will raise decent hands preflop. Seems to play pretty straightforward postflop. Saw him overvalue bottom set in a 3-way all-in where he very easily could've been up against a higher set.
Hero ($2600) - Winning image having won a two big hands recently. Game has had lots of action in the 2 hours the table has been open. Hero has been reasonably involved so image is neutral.
Preflop - Villain limps in EP. LAG pro raises to $25 in MP. Hero calls in CO with 6h5s4h3s. BTN, BB, and EP also call. 5way action to the flop.
The LAG pro had been very aggressive preflop, raising or 3betting most hands he played. I considered 3betting here, but didn't think it would shut-out other players (table had been cold-calling 3 bets). I'd expect Villain to open or limp/rr his AAxx and other premium hands here.
Flop ($125) Ah Kh 2s. Checks to Hero who bets $100. Only Villain calls.
The LAG pro would cbet any piece of this flop. So, I decide to stab and play my disguised wrap and FD from the betting lead. I don't think Villain ever has top or middle set here based on his line preflop and the flop. 22xx is unlikely. So, his range is mostly broadway draws, FDs, and/or aces up.
Turn ($325) Ah Kh 2s 7c. Villain checks. Hero bets $300. Villain calls.
Any merit to taking a free card here? I thought I could rep stronger hands than him and fold out some of his weaker range like A2xx or AJTx, plus potentially setup a river bluff.
So, assuming Villain checks to us on the river, what is the plan for: a heart? a blank? a board pair? He will have about $900 left. Obviously, we are value betting a wheel and generally folding if he leads into us on a nut-changing card.
