3/5 at Talking Stick in Arizona
Folded a couple rivers earlier when I actually had a hand, but it looked like I was bluffing the flop.
I have a pretty bad image, and it looks like I might be steaming a little. Stationed off in a high leveling hero call spot against V3 when he was turning top pair into a bluff when I called with second pair.
Hero ~650 effective, didn't get to reload before this hand
V1 ~500 effective
V2 ~1200 effective
V2 is a fishy old guy
V12 (main villain) is the lady grinder who in the poker room like 16 hours per day, almost every day. If anyone's a reg here, you probably know who I'm talking about. Hates me, considers me a LAGtard and a station, and always thinks I'm bluffing, 3-betting light, etc. and folds to 3-bets 0% of the time against me
V3 is a TAGgy younger guy
V3 raises to 20 from CO
V2 calls from button
Hero raises to 85 with KK in SB
V1 tank calls 85
So it's 275 to the flop
K T 7 rainbow
Hero (SB) bets 110
V3 (BB) thinks for a while and calls
V2 (BU) snap overcalls
I always bet small in 3-bet pots on dry flops to give myself a good price on my bluffs, so I'm keeping it consistent this time. Please no more comments on my flop bet size. It's a style/balance thing.
Turn offsuit 5
I have 400 and change left, which is actually less than a pot size bet, but it still looks like a big bet
The problem with betting small is, I'm giving any type of open ended straight draw a good price, and I'll be forced to pay off on the river.
Now, do I check and slowplay, bet small, or ship it and try to make it look like (to V2) I'm frustrated and trying to buy the pot?
The problem with having top set here is, it's unlikely that someone else has a K, so I'm really trying to make it look like I'm bluffing to get called by something worse than a K.
