2/3nl live, $300 max.
hero ($600): after a couple of pretty gross hands against the mega fish at the table, i have made a bit of a comeback -- my image is on an upswing.
Villian ($200): villian table changed and added on at the time to bring his stack up to about $300. since then he has called a lot preflop, including from oop, and hasn't been super aggro pre.
preflop: villian opens to $15 UTG+1, hero calls UTG+3 with AQo, button calls, blinds fold.
villian checks, hero bets $30 (after being given the green light!), button folds, villian calls after a bit longer than typical rhythm.
villian checks. hero?
do we have enough showdown value here to check it back? do we think he's folding a pair?
do we think QT/KQ or diamonds are a strong enough part of his early position opening range to showdown here?
if we bluff, what sizing do you like?
[this is obv not a big pot, but these kinds of small pots happen a lot and can significantly affect your win rate]
