This is a little different from my typical post, but I’m aiming to get a little more interactive with you guys, and would love to see some comments on this post in particular (though comments on any post are appreciated and read with enthusiasm!).
In this spot, my hand is not given, nor is villain’s. Let me know what you think villain has after each decision point, and whether you like my line with air, with value, or a semi-balanced range (should have some of both) at each point. Another thing to consider is what you think a good preflop range is in this spot, and what our plan is for different postflop board textures.
Preflop: X X
On the button, facing an UTG raise from a somewhat weak-tight player to $10, along with two calls. I call. The blinds fold.
Flop: ($35) (4 players)
Checks around to me and I bet $20. UTG calls.
Turn: ($75) (2 players)
UTG checks, and I bet $45. UTG tanks for a while before calling.
River: ($165) (2 players)
UTG checks, and I bet $75. Villain snap folds.
Let me know what you guys think. If I get some comments I’ll be happy to reply with my thoughts on your analysis, and who knows, maybe we can get some discussion going!
