So yesterday, I am still a little tentative over my huge down day from last week; but I can't let that stop me; but having 12 All in Hands and not winning 8 of them doesn't help things. I was a favorite in 9 of them. The good news is that I still had a 33.74 bb/100 win rate over 1000 hands.
This hand I decided to call in position with the thoughts of bluffing my way through this hand against this opponent.
His stats are:
29/17/2.3 over 727 hands
CBets 43% and Folds to CBets 71%

Hero (MP2): $50.00
Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is MP2 with 7s As
UTG raises to $1.50, 3 folds, Hero calls $1.50, 2 folds, SB calls $1.25, 1 fold
He is kind of a loose type players that only seems to cbet his good hands. His raising from UTG also means that he has something. Whether it is a pair or two high cards, we don't know yet.
So I call with position knowing that I can take away the hand most times; especially if he doesn't cbet.
Flop: ($5.00) 8d 5h Ts (3 players)
SB checks, UTG bets $2, Hero raises to $6.50, SB folds, UTG calls $4.50
Great Flop for me even though it didn't hit me. It is the kind of hand that would hit somebody cold calling. No flush draw; but there are straight draws and of course pair possibilities against a AQ+ KJs+ KQ type hand. He leads out less than half pot. What do you normally take of this? I took it as possible weakness and raised him. Dang.. he called.
Turn: ($18.00) Jh (2 players)
UTG checks, Hero bets $13.50, UTG calls $13.50
OK.. Jack probably doesn't help him so I keep up my aggression by betting and again he calls. Now, I know he has something. I now have $28 left in this $45 pot.
River: ($45.00) Ah (2 players)
UTG checks, Hero ????
So now I actually have some showdown value. Do you bet or do you take the cheap showdown?
Have a nice day!!!
