Villain is one of the only 2/5 regs at Borgata who might give me trouble once in a while. It was Marcus, for those of you who play at Borgata. He manages to get away with play LAG in a $500 cap game which is pretty hard to do
I was working on the seat change thing. "Change seats" would be the most obvious suggestion here. This was my first hand at the table
Hero sits down and takes the BB
Villain straddles UTG
4 limpers and hero limps with AJo
Villain raises to $65
Everybody folds, and I stubbornly call because I have AJ
What do I do on a 555 flop? I have to call a cbet because a lot of the time he's going to have a worse A high, right?
Then what do I do on various turn cards when I don't hit an A or J? It goes without saying that I'm going to check if I hit a pair, definitely if I hit an A, because he has to barrel an A.
Or to make this hand less annoying to play, should I just raise out of the BB pre-flop? He tends not to defend his straddle too wide when I raise.
