I saw this interesting hand go down in a straddled pot at 10/20(40 straddle) NL. It was a spot where one very good player's range was pretty faceup facing heavy action against another very good player.
10/20 NL with an UTG straddle. 7k effective. 72 game is being played as well ($100 bonus from each of the other players if someone shows 72 while taking down a pot).
10/20/40, 7k effective.
HJ (very good somewhat tight preflop TAG pro who can execute big plays) opens $130, good tight TAG who doesn't get too out of line in big pots $450 SB, and another very good pro calls UTG straddle, HJ overcalls. $1370 in pot.
($1370) Flop 7c5s3h, one heart. SB cbets $530, straddle calls, HJ raises $1500. SB folds...
What do we think is the straddle's range is for getting to this spot? And what do we think the HJ's range is for raising flop here in a 3bet pot if he is hand-reading the straddle well?
I will delve deeper into the hand after get some preliminary discussion going about ranges on the flop.
