Re: Early in the Stars Sunday Warm-up...
Thanks for replies guys.
My thinking on the turn was that the Ace was a great card for him to barrel, and also improves his range a fair amount so I thought there was tons of value in a C/R. I also expected to find out right there if I was behind, as I expected KJ and sets to 3bet me a decent amount of the time. Like Jay says there are a bunch of hands with reasonable equity and some of those hands can be in my turn C/R range, so the hands I am behind to should want to protect. Also, they might expect to get value from a hand such as mine (even though I would be folding to a 3bet). If I am behind it's not like I give up a lot of redraw equity by having to fold, as I am drawing dead to AA, 2 outs vs QQ, and 4 vs 33/KJ.
On the river, the flush / GS draws miss, and the board pairs. I vbet and he shoves. There is just 1 combo of A3s, 1 combo each of 33/AA/QQ, 3 of TT. I no longer worry about KJ as he is unlikely to flat turn only to shove river when the board pairs. Some of those hands also seem like unlikely to be minraised from UTG also, but who knows... He might think the 3 is a good bluff card for some reason...
I'll leave results out for a bit in case there is any more discussion!
