V’s image is as usual. There is one player at the table who needles me a ton and calls me out to the rest of the table. Calling me a pro and just generally being facetious concerning anything he has to say about me or my style of play. I think he thinks I’m a fish and wants everyone else to think so too… He is NOT the V in this hand. Main V is trying to win and does reasonably well in this field but may be hitting a wall going higher. Plays a reasonable number of pots, mostly passive pre, only 3!'s premiums, doesn’t get OOL much, can bluff but rarely. Pretty fit or fold mostly. He says he respects my game regardless of how other people see me, for what that’s worth.
20k/40k FR 9 handed
6.3M effective with V, other stack sizes will not be relevant.
Pre (60k) utg, utg1, utg2, mp, btn calls V completes in the sb and H Qd8h x’s option in the bb. 7 ways to the flop.
Flop (280k) 8s3s2h, x’s all the around 7 ways.
Turn (280k) 5d, V sb leads pot 280k, H bb calls, everyone else folds
River (840k) 8c, V sb 840k, H?
With V’s psb of 840k there is now 1.68M in the pot and V has 5.1M back, H covers. What are we doing here as H? What does V’s range look like? What can he have for value, what are his bluffs and do we beat any of his value? What can we get called by if we raise? Should we raise?
