I feel like I am running a lot worse than my results show here. It's
funny how your short term memory can make it feel so much worse. In any
event, I have flopped exactly 1 set in my last 50-ish hours or NLHE
(actually a bit more but just not exactly sure). This set went down
like this (warning dumb beat). This isn't super interesting just a dumb
Get stacked by a terribad fish (Hand #30)
A rec-fish ($1,200) open limps in MP and 2 more limp. I 3b BTN to $30 with 99 and about $1k stack. Folds back to MP who essentially limp-min re-raises to $70.
(Pot ~$155) Flop Q94.
He checks and I bet $85. He c/r to $225 and I call. I am pretty sure
he has AA or KK here and may find a fold if I 3b flop.
(Pot ~$605) Turn 2 He just open ships ~$675 effective and I sigh call. He has QQ obv and river is 4.
So he played almost every spot terribly and still I have no chips...lol.
Happens sometimes I guess. Since then I have not flopped a set once.
The only time I would have I had 22, saw a raise and a re-raise in
front of me, folded and then saw a K29 flop. Funny thing is in my head I
was convinced the 3b had KK and was wondering what I would do if I were
still in. Sure enough 3b showed KK.
I also played a 5/10 hand that I am not sure about...feel like I won the minimum.
Play QQ like a weak tight nit (Hand #31)
UTG is a pretty tight, solid TAG opens to $40, 3 call and I am in BB with QQ. I have about $1,800, UTG covers, and one of the over callers covers.
(Pot $200) Flop 742 I check, UTG checks ,
UTG +1 bets $130, all fold and I call. He is Asian, overvalues OP,
doesn't like to give up, and just generally not very much of a thinking
player (he starts hand with ~$1,400). I range him on pairs lower than
mine, some combo draws, perhaps flopped sets and two pair.
(Pot $460) Turn J
I check, he bets $200 and I call. I am now pretty confident I have the
best hand based on his sizing. I really feel like his hand is a lot of
66-TT, A7, etc.
(Pot $860) River 5 I lead $300...he folds 99 face up.
Any thoughts on this hand. Perhaps c/r flop once it gets past UTG and given UTG +1 image. I think UTG open got me playing this hand a bit too conservatively.
