This hand started off as a 6 max table but slowly broke and I ended heads up with the villain. I already had an aggressive dynamic with the villain and villain seems competent.
This is the 10th hand in played against villain HU. Just curious to know what everyone thinks about my line as played and what I could have done differently.
PF: I think that calling is ok and 3b is fine. Anyone think 3b is better?
F: I hit a great board for my hand. Since I called out of position obviously I checked to villain. I am pretty sure this is standard but I c/r this flop. I am sure this is a the best way of playing the flop or are there any merits to calling?
When villain calls the c/r on the flop what does villains range consist of? The board is pretty wet and I think since we already have an aggressive dynamic I think that villain perceives me to be a reg possibly c/r a wet flop with some bluffs, draws, and some top pair and sets.
What confuses me the most is when he flats the c/r on the flop. At first I felt that possibly Tx, some worse draws, and the nut flush draw would call. But I want to say the standard is that two pair, sets, over pairs (maybe), nut flush draws would click it back on the flop most of the time as opposed to slow playing such a wet flop.
T: The turn is an interesting card and bring me much confusion. I am not entirely sure but is betting in this spot ok or is checking ok? I went with the standard line of aggression since I re took control of the hand on the flop and bet. Now I dont like my bet that much but at the moment of that hand I figured half pot bet would accomplish a call or a fold I was not ready for villain to re raise the turn.
I feel that my turn bet mostly shows weakness and my hand is weighted mostly towards draws and maybe some top pair hands. I think that my bet on the flop should have been $2.00-2.50.
Thoughts here on alternative lines of play?
Now whats confusing is that we get raised....what combos could villain realistically have and how many. I think hands like AT would flat, AQhh, AJhh (even Ax of hearts I would expect to possibly click it back?), maybe slow played sets of 5's and 7's? Again I wold assume sets and two pairs would click it back more often. Could he even have done this with a redraw?
We cant call and we can only jam or fold. I dont like folding ugggggh and I dont like jamming because I am pretty sure I am behind here in this spot. We are getting a little less than 3-1 and it seems like jamming would be ok but I am not sure how many clean outs I have.
Uuuugh! Please help!
