1/2 300 max buy-in no
Villain 1 (400) 50s Asian guy. Reg player but not very good. Plays fairly tight and straightforward post, although he is not super nitty pre. I would expect if he had qq+ or maybe ak he'd raise bigger than $7, but that isn't guaranteed. Doesn't cbet light post multiway. Might actually fold draws post for big bets, but not certain.
Villain 2 (400) maniac fish. Possibly high and randomly laughing maniacally for no reason at all. Played super stationy early and donned off several hundred, then flipped into lag mode. 3 times in the last 2 orbits shoved for 300 into small pots - once as a bluff (I guess) with k6 on a 886q8 board when a Pfr checked back the turn (guy folded and he showed). Once with 58 on a 56q47 board when the Pfr also checked the turn and once on the flop and didn't show.
Villain 3 (120) younger white guy. Hasn't played too many hands since he sat down. No real reads but not super stationy or aggro. Maybe a little loose pre but that's about it.
Hero (400) up and down image. Villain 2 doubled through me earlier on a short stack when I iso raised a short stack shove and he cold called $50 with a6o and called a flop ship on a 345 board and hit a straight. Also bluffed me possibly once this orbit when he shipped 300 and I folded and he didn't show. Villain 1 probably knows I'm a decent player. Unknown to v3.
Villain 1 (utg+1) opens to $7
Villain 2 (mp) calls $7
Hero (button) 3h4h calls $7
Villain 3 (sb) calls $7
Flop: Jd 5h 6h
Villain 1 bets $15, mp folds, villain 2 raises to $30, hero calls $30, villain 3 shoves for $112, villain 1 calls $112, villain 2 calls $112, hero calls $112
Turn: Jd 6h 5h 9s
Villain 1 shoves for 285, villain 2 calls 285, hero?
Here's my reads action by action.
Preflop I fold this hand a lot pre, but this is a special circumstance in that V2 is actively trying to donk off his stack and I want to get involved, plus I can have some idea of when I'm behind to V1.
On the flop I debated just raising back. V2 is an aggro maniac and I don't think he's ever folding even a jack here. I don't think V1 has a flush draw, so as long as V3 doesn't have a higher flush draw I thought there's really no reason to raise back when I could just call and try to hit and save money. I don't mind letting V1 call AA and get more money in the pot.
V3 could easily have a set, 2 pair (most likely 65) or I guess possibly the NFD, but he wouldn't HAVE to raise back the NFD. Who knows - he could have AJ and be overplaying it.
I don't know if V1 even calls the nut flush draw here with 2 people left to act behind. I think he has AA-QQ a lot. I would expect him to raise back JJ rather than risk a bad beat, but he could have JJ possibly. V2 is an aggro maniac, so when he just calls I really don't think he has the nut flush draw or Jxhh or I think he'd just shove back. He could easily have any jack or some random 2 pair or even QQ+ and be randomly calling. He also could have a flush draw, which would be very bad for me.
I have at least 8 clean outs (6 non-heart straight cards plus 2 straight flush cards). Also despite the maniac I think the turn may go check/check a lot because V1 may get scared with AA and V2 might figure there's no need to bet into a dry side pot some of the time.
V1 kind of confidently snap shoves, and now I'm worried because I think he has JJ a lot. THe pot is huge, but a lot of fish would get scared now with aces but he doesn't seem worried at all. V2 kind of shrugs and says "well, I guess I have to call." He also showed his buddy standing behind him and it seems like he has some kind of good hand.
I have to call about $280 to win $1050 which is about 3.7-1. I need about 21% equity. Even if V1 has JJ and V2 has AThh or something like that, I have 19% equity. As long as no one has an eight (which would be unlikely) I still have at least 8 outs and as many as 13 (vs a set).
Even if V3 (the short stack) has a higher FD I'm getting 2-1 from the side and I think he has a made hand a lot. If 2 players have sets they kill each others outs and I'm even in better shape.
Is this a spot where I should figure I"m up against a made hand and a dominating draw and fold at some point? Should I have just raise/called the flop?
If I had like bottom pair and a flush draw here I think it's an easy fold on the flop as I likely have just a bare flush draw. Thoughts?
