Game is 2/5 NL 9 handed. Opponent in this hand is super weak, stationy, limpy, plays face up, is SUPER-sticky, and pretty passive for the most part. (you know the drill/ very common tendencies at this level).
effective stacks w/ him are @$800
He hit a bad beat jackpot recently for 60k and has since become a much bigger contributor to the game. Persian dude.
I'm in the BB w/ 8cTc and check my option in a 6 way pot UTG+2, UTG+3 (main opponent), HJ, button, and SB limp in. Pot is $25. (after rake)
Flop comes Jh 9c 6c. flopping gutshot str8 flush draw.
I lead $25, and UTG+2 (also super-weak) and opponent both call; the rest of the field folds. I love my hand. pot is $75.
turn comes a blank, 4d. I fire out $55. Only main opponent calls. (big surprise, lol)
pot is $185
river is the Kc, making my flush. I happily bet $155 expecting to get called by his entire range, and he snap-makes it $500 more, leaving less than $100 behind.
having played many hours w. this guy I think he has a flush here only, and is never going crazy w/ QT (str8) unless he mis-read the board. the J on the flop is not a club, so I'm losing to the nuts, Q-hi, & J-hi flushes.
he never folds Q3sooted type hand preflop, but then he plays just about 100% of his hands.
I'm only beating a 7-hi or 5-hi flush of worse, since I have the 8 blocked, and the 6 is on the board.
who calls, who folds?? and why??
