Six-handed 1-2NL, all recs including hero :P
Hero 300 CO
Villain 300+ BTN
LJ / HJ both limp
H misreads hand, thinks it's straddle to 5 and a call, raises to 21 with Jh Jd. Realised just as I put the chips in, couldn't help groaning.
Villain raises 75
folds to H, call
Qd 5c 8c
V bet 50
(Qd 5c 8c) 4s
V bet 175 (all-in)
At the time I felt like I didn't really have any queens on that turn, thinking that many of my AQ bluff-shove preflop. (I was thinking: call TT JJ QQ AK preflop, raise KK+ AQ... but of course there's too many AQ and if I actually held it I'd probably call the offsuit ones. So that's one thing learned)
I put the villain fairly tightly at QQ+ AK and maybe some small suited aces bluffing (but assumed not during the hand). Feel like AQ / JJ etc would just call pre rather than raising.
On the flop it seems like an obvious call. Q is the most unlikely overcard to be hit. AA KK are obviously bad for us still, but the bet is small, and villain almost certainly cbets all AK here. If I have QQ or AcKc AcQc I shove, AQ calls (but I'm still thinking I don't have (m)any AQ), TT calls, AK without Ac folds.
On the turn things are tough. In the end I call, thinking I don't have enough queens to only call with those. Three AcK + six TT fold, I have to call with something.
Villain had AK, but even though we got it in good I'm not sure about the decision process here. In the hand I was thinking I don't have any AQ at all - that's clearly wrong, but even if I have 15 combos of AQ on the turn (i.e. don't bluff raise any preflop) I can't fold half my range (3 AK 6 TT 6 JJ) to a 2/3 pot bet.
What do you think? I suppose the answer is just don't misclick preflop :P
(river was an A, which might be colouring my thinking here a bit)
