Weekly home game filled with lots of action. I am the youngest player in the game by 10+ years as most players are in their 50s with little or no live casino play.
Hero arrived late to the game and has been playing for 30 minutes with the effective stack. I am in MP2 with Ad Ac
UTG limps, Hero UTG1 calls 2
- every pot has been raised preflop with 3 LAGs behind yet to act
- this will be a 3Bet pot
MP2 OMC raises to $10, CO, BTN, SB, BB all call
$55 in the middle with action on hero.
In reviewing the hand, trying to figure out the correct amount to bet here to thin the field. In this game, it is not uncommon for multiple players to call $30 preflop and then have this go multi way to the flop.
I end up making a raise to $100 and everyone folds.
Looking back on the hand, I think $75 or a shove to $240 would have been a better play. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as we are all trying to improve our game and win rates.
