  • 5nl Zoom 6max, standard c/call down?

    Villain is 21/17 agg 5.0 through 109 hands. 3bet 5% and cbet 71% through 7 occasions. wtsd 8% and w$s 100%. turn cbet 40%. 3 of us are deep and Villain 6 seems like a rec. 1 tabling and playing a ton of hands through a 50 hand sample. So I think flatting is fine, keeps him in and we have position on the aggressor. The pre flop action is a bit worrying what with the min raises everywhere (LOL!). My plan was to call down here, pretty standard yes? Villains wtsd and agg, although a small sample, tells me he has a wide enough range here for it to be plus ev. The turn bet sizing is huge, and really worried me. Doesnt scream of value on a dry board imo, then again does he bet that big on the turn with hands that I am ahead of? It's pretty polarised I think, to hands that have me crushed and hands I'm crushing. If he had aces/queens pre he's now ahead, villain probably plays aq like this too. Of course there is the spazz element also. What do you guys think?

    Preflop, there is only one min-raise and that is the bet to 25 cents. The raise to 50 cents is not a min-raise, as this opp only has to raise to 35 cents as the previous raise was by 10 cents, so a min would be to 35.

    When it gets back to me preflop, I'd re-raise to $1.25-$1.35. That way I can find out real quickly if I'm up against another premium hand. Calling down with a premium pair is not what I normally want to be doing. I want to have the initiative in the hand and bet aggressive, not to be passive and call.

    By playing the hand passively, I have no clue whether or not I'm ahead, so I don't know whether to raise or fold.

      Thanks John, it's a leak of mine. Put myself in tricky spots doing this.

        I’m not sure it goes directly here as we would be stacking of pre right?
