Here's a 1/3 NLHE hand from last night. I won the hand, and got all the guy's chips. Wondered if you would go at it a different direction or if you'd play it like I did. Hero and Villain both have about $400 stacks. Hero in Big Blind, Villain in Lojack. Villain is middle aged white guy, definitely a rec player but knows a few of the dealers by name, so not in unfamiliar territory. He beat me out of a good sized pot earlier when he hero-called my bluff, and probably sees me as a very LAG player. In this hand hero gets 78 offsuit, one raise preflop by villain to $10, and hero calls. Flop: K69 rainbow Hero checks, villain bets $15, hero calls. Turn: 5 (yahtzee!) Hero checks, villain bets $50, hero raises to $150, villain snap calls. River: A Hero shoves, villain thinks for a minute, makes the call. Hero takes down the pot, V never shows cards. This hand cripples villain (he has about $9 left after losing this hand) and he ends up busting out on his last $9 a few hands later and leaving. Do you agree with the play? Obviously I got really lucky playing what I did. - What do you think Villain had? A set? Two pair? AK? $10 pre-flop seems like a smallish bet for AK but maybe he was disguising his hand with a moderate size raise. - Would you have called the extra $7 preflop with 78 offsuit? - Would you have bet/played the other streets differently if you can get past the fact I called pre-flop with a crummy hand?
