I’ve decided to start posting some more traditional HH’s here in “Poker Strategy.” I’m going to be posting them in a write up form for a couple of reasons. It’s good practice and I believe it gets you/I thinking about the hand more deeply. Also I will be posting some live HH’s that I have from my sessions, I play 1/3 2/3 and 2/5 and some 1/2 when out of town. Obviously I do not have links for these hands, More importantly though, I can post HH without results which is absolutely the way it should be done. HH’s posted with results give way to biased/results oriented thinking and definitely affect the analysis we get. Anyway, lets get to it.
Villain is a fairly good regular at these stakes and plays a little higher too, he’s ranked in the low 100’s (narrows the field, lol.) He’s very TAG and doesn’t bluff much(if at all) but is very aggressive with strong made hands and pot controls middling holdings but is sticky. My image is as usual, splashy wild man who plays big pots and isn’t averse to mixing it up with some big bluffs. In fact I’ve been caught bluffing a couple recently prior to this hand. I’m posting this more interested in what you guys think about his play on the flop and turn.
Ayers Rock 2
50K/100K (6 max) we are 6 handed
V opens utg AdTd, 302K, folds to H btn 3!'s to 855K, blinds fold, V calls
Flop (1.86M) As6h8c, V donks .5 pot 930K, H calls
Turn (3.72M) Tc, V pots 3.72M, H raise 8.5M, V shoves for H’s remaining 11M, H? (results later after some discussion)
What do we think about V’s line. H’s range on the turn? What value raises do we have on this board, what are our bluffs, what is V expecting to get called by/fold out?
