  • Live NLHE 1/2$ deep, manuvering with set on very wet board aginat multiple vilians

    Now this is a fun hand i just plaid in local casino. Game in question is 1/2$ NLHE, pretty deepstacked by now with everyone having at least 800$ behind them. Game is generally very loose but pretty passive preflop.

    CU got 1100$
    BU(hero) with about 800$
    SB with about 750$
    BB with 690$

    CU was playing very tight, with a lot of limp/raise preflop. HERO is playing his usual loose/agressive game. SB is a professional player who drops by here to have some fun with friends, he is playing loose/aggro today. BB is a solid, tight player.

    Action starts with couple of limps to HERO who raises it up to 12$ with 77, SB raises it to 30$, BB folds and MP1 call, so does hero.
    Flop comes 6d7d8d, and is checked to HERO who checks it.
    Turn comes 9d, and is checked to CU who bets 60$. Hero calls, SB and BB fold.
    River comes 8s, CU bets 150$, Hero ??

    Fold is out of the question obviously, but can we actually raise for value here? If we do, how much would this bet be, and what are we extracting value from? What if he decides to push our bet all-in, do we call?

    Well, there are probably 5 hands that would call a value raise (66, 88, 99, J10, A8s). If the opp was playing tight, then the J 10 might be out of that range, along with the A8... leaving the 3 pocket pairs.

    If the opp was playing looser, then I would value raise about 1/2 pot, since there would be a better chance the opp would have A8 or J10. I'd also be ready to call a re-raise. If you're not going to call a re-raise, then flat it.
    With a tight opp, I'd put them more on a pkt pair that hit a part of it (and if so, you only beat 1 of the 3)... so I'd flat the $150. They could have an overpair too... but I'd think they'd re-raise pre.

      I would add 10s to his preflop call range,and with th.limp raise in front, i'd also add AKo or s and maybe AQs, so I think he has the nut flush, but could even have the str8flush with a four liner to it on the board. And with the other pairs that have you licked, I would have to reluctantly just call the river, because I think the only hand your beating and would call a raise is the nut flush.

        You are aware that 88 beats me with quads at this point, right?
        I tried to break down your supposed "calling range" multiple times but every time it was redundant and leads into a simple point - there is no reason to bet them OTT and OTR as they are mere bluff-catchers at this point (with exception of 99 which gets value from lower full houses).

        Idea that you can raise OTR and then be happy about calling is just appalling. What would raise you there that you beat? Is there even a single hand that does that? He won't do that without 88 or Td or 5d. which beats the crap out of you (maybe, just maybe with 99, most likely he would bluff-catch with it at this point anyway as betting here is such strong move).

        I don't get your idea of calling with A8 here whatsoever, what on earth are you beating? Overpair (lol) ?

          Agreed ..I dont see a tight player ever calling a limp/3bet with 10/J or A8

            This is live, not online so it is within his range. Anyhow playing it OTR is ridiculous unless its TdJd

              good point with the flush. I missed seeing it. With that being the case, AK, AQ, maybe even AJ of diamonds definitely go into their range.

                Which still doesn't touch the original problem in any meaningful way.

                  It puts more hands into their range that would call a value raise from you, that you are ahead of... making me more opt to want to do it.

                  I'd put in a value raise of about 1/2 pot.

                    My point was merely there are too many hands that beat you possible to do anything but call.. Sad but true.

                      Well a judge seems to disagree, maybe he cares to explain how does one extract value OTR here from say, AJ

                        AK, AQ, AJ of diamonds has an A high flush... you've got a full house and an A high flush should be calling a value raise.
