  • facing all in shove on river with 2nd set.

    Have played 170 ish hands with mallki12 this last 2 weeks - plays a straight laced ABC style without too much trickiness (that i have noticed) have seen him 3 bet big pairs and big suited Aces. So after such a passive line right up to the river should i be sticking with my orignal hand range of small to mid pair medium suited A. I need to call $1.36 to win $2.79 with my shaky looking set.

    hi Grade B!

    To me, this hand is one you'd really need to provide more info on what he might have seen YOU do in the past. Have you mucked to float plays before? the more history you have with an opp, the more possible it becomes to conceive of him trying "moves".

    To be honest, if this guy is totally ABC, even in his pre flop play, it is quite likely he is on a minor over pair like 88/99, as well as something like 55 or 77. Your line did not look uber strong (although you did fire 3 x barrels), and it may sniff a bit like un paired overs. As such, there MAY be just enough chance he is over valuing a minor over pair that given the odds here, and all 3 barrels you fired, it may tilt me toward a call.

    Hope it helps.

      thanks Jdean,

      man that means more notes for me to take (lol) have to be honest no real idea what he has seen but for sure he will have seen lay downs against passive players and looser calls against loose aggressive ones so no it also depends as to how well he is keeping notes against other players.

      Ashamed to admit he will have also see me fire 3 on weak / mid and strong hands
