Although the hand described below is probably a pretty common situation, it's one in which I feel I'm losing money consistently and I'm having trouble determining a winning strategy.
2/5 @ Hollywood Hard Rock in South Florida
Hero - 1K effective, in SB w/ A♣
Have been playing with Villain for 30-45 minutes; seems like a solid regular; opening a decent amount of hands; aggressive; taking pots down w/out showdown.
Villain opens in HJ to $20
Nitfish calls in CO
Hero 3! to $80
Flop ($185) = Q♣ 6 : 4 :
Hero bets $90
Is this sizing OK? I don't like checking here because then I look like AK, JJ or TT, which may result in a good player barreling.
Turn ($365) = 4♣
Villain bets $160
Not sure what to do here. I feel like Villain can easily float with his entire range and bluff here.
