$25 nl 6 maxstacks are all the usual, I have max and villains cover or are close. SB has played kind of weak/tightish, probably like 30/10/1.5, but that's only an approximation - we've played probably 100 hands together.Hero is dealt [ 8 :diamond: 9 :club: ]three limpersSB completesHero checksFlop [8 :club: 9 :spade: T :heart: ]($1.25)SB bets $1Hero raises to $53 foldsSB raises to $14Hero foldsWhat do you do in this spot? I mean it looks like a standard fold. OTF you have to raise, correct, but then it seems like you're only receiving further action from better two-pair combos, sets, or straights. I guess it's just one of those hands where you have to punish passive draws / top pair and fold to serious resistance.
when hands like this arise i tend to tell myself not to go broke in limped pots with coordinated boards vs a hand out of the blinds. folding still feels painful but it's really not. if you hold T9 it can be a bit more complicated.ipits
Give me a paper and pen so I can write about my life of sin. A couple bottles of gin in case I don't get in.
