Found myself in a pretty gross spot this week at the Rio in an uncapped 2/5 game. I originally bought in 1k but added on another 1k after a really bad player directly to my right won a huge pot and was sitting just under 2k.
My table image was mixed. I won a big pot with 33 on a 633 board but lost a good size one against the same Villain as hand below when I had 67s of Js8s6x board and we got it all in on the turn and I bricked against his Aces. Villain is pretty decent TAG who says he has his own game in Austin. He had won another huge pot with Aces against a King high flush draw although was recently just shown a pure $675 bluff when he folded the turn in a 4-bet pot pre flop.
He is Main Villain and sitting on 1500. Other Villain has about 400.
I am in the SB with Red Kings. Villain makes it 20 from cut off. Button calls. I look down at my Kings and am cutting out chips for a raise when the BB, other Villain, makes it $70 out of turn. Dealer stops him and tells him it is my turn to act. I say "I was intending to raise and feel it would be an angle shoot to do anything other than that" and put in the $70 I had cut out. V2 thinks about it for a second and makes it $140. Main Villain now thinks for a moment and makes it $320. Button folds. It's now on me. To recap:
Cutoff ($1500) raise to 20
Hero ($1800) raise to 70
BB raise to 140
Cutoff raise to 320
Hero - ???
My read on Villain (cutoff) is that he is pretty straight forward but not afraid to mix it up and play post-flop. On the hand where I flopped pair/flush draw, he just called my flop raise and check-raised AI on turn with his aces on a safe turn. In the hand where he was bluffed on turn, he called big re-raise pre-flop and called pot size bet on flop before folding what he claimed was just a small pair on 9532 board.
