$2/5 Live Game. $500 Max Buy In.
Villain is a very solid regular who has shown the ability to get thin value on a few river spots so far in the session. Through discussion with him it is obvious he studies the game, takes it seriously and might be playing for a living.
I have been quiet this session and card dead. Otherwise I have a LAG image and have played with villain before a few times.
There is an UTG limp. Villain raises to $25 from the LJ off $750. I call on the BTN w/ QsJs and $800 behind. UTG calls as well.
UTG is a competent player who is a little on the tight side. He seems to limp often with marginal type holdings he wants to see a flop with.
Flop ($75) = Th 8s 4d
UTG ch. LJ $35. I call. UTG calls.
I thought about raising this flop, but decided to float with 2 overs, a gutter and a backdoor spade draw.
Turn ($180) = 7s
UTG ch. LJ ch. I bet $80 (poor sizing IMO, I should have went much larger as I would with J9s, 87s, T7s, sets, etc.)
UTG calls. LJ calls.
River ($420) = 3c
UTG ch. LJ bets $175.
I fold. UTG folds.
I contemplated long about jamming over his bet on the river. But I honestly had a hard time ranging villain here. On one hand it seems like some kind of blocker bet with a marginal hand that would fold to a big river raise. But not sure that's the case with 2 players left to act after the bet.
Thoughts? Specifically on villains range and if I should jam this river?
