1-2 game at Parx.
Some setup: Hero and V2 have effective stacks of ~450; V1 has stack of about $175?
Pre-flop: 6 of us in for $10. Hero is in the cutoff with 8s8c; hero had just called the $2, V1 button makes it $10, everyone in for 2 calls the $10. So ~$60 in the pot (less rake plus blinds).
Flop: 7 8 J with 2 diamonds.
Checks around to player 2 to my right who makes it $45. We'll call him V2.
Action to me. What's your play, raise or call?
My thinking: I'm dead to JJ, behind 9T, and I'm crushing everything else. I rule out JJ, I think V2 makes a pre-flop raise with it. I also feel that V1 who is next to act behind me missed this flop, and might make a move with his preflop raising range of QQ+, AK. I don't believe he has JJ either; no one at Parx 1-2 makes it $10 with JJ, they always make it $22 or something stupid.
So I call, deciding to build a big pot.
V1 raises it to $100 to go; V2 things about it for one second and goes all in.
Action to me: what's your play, call or fold?
There is now about $650-$700 in the pot with me needing to call the rest of my ~$420 stack. I'm not great with ranges, but I am pretty good with feel. And V1 feels like a big pair, and V2 feels like he's on draw and not sitting their with 9T (REALLY big bets at Parx on the flop are usually indictative of draws). I think about it for about 5 seconds and call.
V1 is NOT happy, thinks about it for about 20 seconds, folds.
I'll withhold the results for a bit; curious how others would have played the flop.
