  • Way too Aggro?

    5c/10c Blinds cash game... Vilian is a TAG with stats of 13/11 and plays normalish poker, not bad not super good. I have been at the table for around 70hands and I was the one who won the biggest pot with 9$ in the pot when I flopped 444 against a noob who called me 3streets with AJ and the rest of the pots did never go above 3$. Problem: Something I behave like a maniac and maybe bet too much loosing my opponent behind me and missing value... Question is did I over bet my hand here? I have the 4th nuts here but there are redraws and opponent raised and on the flop bets big. I put him on AK or AQ and nearly impossible AAA. 333 is v difficult to raise after limpers and everyone would fold. I would never make him on A5 which is one of the worse hands I would ask against. Plus he has tones of draws on the flop. Issue is did I do well to stack here on my reading (which was wrong as it was worse)? How would you behave if he had AK or AQ? and how would you change your behaviour on his actual hand A5 hearts! Would you raise him for 3x what he betted? The issue of the 3rd Heart on the turn might not stack him my original thinking. Reason why I stacked here are these. 1) Though he had AK or AQ. 2) Saw him always betting less hard usually not more than 1/2 the pot. 3) 3rd heart on thr turn might make him a bit scared if he had AK or AQ. Thanks for the help as even when it goes well I would like to know other people's opinion. Etienne

    Hi Etienne,

    You're off on the action... Villain didn't raise limpers, The opponent to your left raised and the villain cold called that raise.

    His flop bet sizing is pretty strong, it does indicate an ace to me but not necessarily AK or AQ since he will likely cold call wider than this (obviously we know it's the case after the fact since he actually showed up with A5s). AAA is unlikely I agree since he didn't 3-bet, but a set of 3's is certainly possible. So are all the big aces, and potential flush draws. Over all our equity is great vs. his range, and I'm willing to play for stacks, so I like check-raising to build the pot. Is this overbet shove good? It depends a lot on the villain. If the guy will stack off a naked AQ type hand then I think it's fantastic because he's basically stacking off his entire range which we're smashing. I assume he will always stack off 33, aces up, and AhXh to this action. We are a 2-1 favorite over that range, and if he stacks off some big naked aces as well our equity jumps up from there. If he folds out naked aces to this action that costs us some value for sure, but how many offsuit aces are in his range is unclear, and how he would respond with them to a more normal raise size is also unclear.

    All things considered, I think the action is fine. With a lot more info on the villain we could make a more informed decision.
