5/10 Reno Peppermill. The line-up looked good, a few older, tight-ish looking players, some youngish players who looked very competent, and an older, loose, in-every-pot dude. I decided to buy in for 1K. All had me covered, several had 3-4K in front of them (big stacks and thick stacks of hundos behind). I was a little nervous inside...the first pot I got in my heart was pounding so hard after I bet, and when they folded and I raked in my first pot, I was like, "OK, Chris, you can do this!"
Anyway, I played VERY solidly, tight aggressive, was careful about when to and when not to c-bet, used my position, etc, and I chipped up to around $1,600. The old guys left, so it's me and the younger guns. I should have picked up, but I didn't.
Anyway, I changed seats, had position on the loose older man and a young guy that was good, so I decided to stay.
Most everyone was button-straddling, which at the Peppermill means you get last action before the flop. I was down to around $1200 when this hand came up:
6-handed, I button straddle to $20. Folds around to BB, another young, very competent player who I hadn't seen make any big mistakes, he value bet thinly, etc. He cavalierly tosses in two red chips to call the straddle. I look down at J8dd and raised to $70, thinking he might fold now, or I could pick up the pot with a flop c-bet. He gives me a light-hearted needle like I'm going to slowly bleed him to death and calls my raise.
Hero (BTN) with J8dd vs. Villain (BB), pot is now $145.
Flop: JJ6cc. He checks. I bet $75. He c/r pretty quickly to $250.
What's my plan for the hand? What should I be thinking about in this spot, keeping in mind my opponent is thinking player, we're 6-handed, and he limp-called my pre-flop raise and now c/r me on a JJ6cc board?
I thought his range had mostly flush draws in it, with some 6's, and that he was trying to get some fold equity with a c/r.
Thanks for all your thoughts on the hand.
