i was trying too make a very fancy play but am curious if i made the right decision or i should just have gave up on the bluff?
first of all, my own image here probably is fairly straightforward, i have made a few small bluffs, and tried to pick on weak plays, but i’ve done nothing out of the ordinary yet. certainly no big bluffs. i did have made a few 3bets as well, but teh only one i seen by the others was with KK thus winning the hand. so no light 3bets caught yet.
the person i’m facing is a strong opponent, he is ranked 32th and have seen him make fancy plays as well. most likely because blackwidow (another player on the table) is a very good player too. the fancy plays does include light 3bets of his own. i haven’t actually caught him light 3 betting at the moment but i certainly expected it because of his frequency. later this was confirmed by shoving into his 3bet with AQs holding just 1M. he was forced to call my 4bet shove cuz of the pot odds with 89s
ok to the actual hand now:
preflop: i have 84s, clearly a fold usually. but the raiser have raised 3 hands in a row now and plays fairly aggressively. but still it’s controlled agrression, meaning i can get him fold a wide part of his raise range. the caller clearly speaks for itself. if teh hand was good enough, he could have raised himself. so imo by squeezing i can get decent fold equity out of it.
of course i’m well aware 84s isn’t teh best canidate for a light 3bet squeeze, but it’s not bad either.
flop: clearly with teh A high flop the bet speaks for itself. i’m repping an ace. but considering the call, i’m fairly sure he’s holding teh ace himself.
turn: clearly i’m far behind. but still, considering my actions, especcialy the 3bet preflop i’m repping an big ace here AQ or AK to be exact. my opponent however didn’t 4bet me, so i deemed it quite unlikely he had AK, maybe AQ but there is a blocker on the flop to that combination. and the same blocker means AQ is less likely for him to hold. his loose plays mean he could have AJ or AT in his hand as well (maybe even A9).
