Bay 101 live 2-3-5 blinds, 200 spread limit game. (200 max bet)The villain in this hand was like Jamie Gold in almost every sense. He looked like him (with some facial hair), talked like him, bet like him, everything. He also played a lot like him, except looser. This guy was a maniac. He played almost every hand in any position for almost any amount. Up to this point though he was on fire. In the first hour I had played he had won every pot that went to showdown and most of the others. It was scary how lucky he was getting. He was also capable of firing three barrel bluffs. Bets both draws and made hands aggressively. Villain thinks hero is solid and seems to respect me. Stacks: Hero: ~850Villain: ~1800Villain raises to 20 in MP, folds to hero in SB with J
. Hero calls.I just call here because I'm sure that I will be heads up with villain, I know that he will probably call any reraise I make, and I will be OOP. I didn't want to be OOP against this opponent with jacks in a big pot with deep stacks. I'm really torn on this decision though because I think i should have reraised for value here. Thoughts?
Pot: 45Flop - 6
Hero checks, villain bets 30, Hero raises to 80, villain hums and haws and callsAt this point I know he has something. From his talk it looks more like a made hand than a draw, but I'm not sure. I would say 80% made hand, 20% draw. As far as his range, he could easily have a 6, or any pair 77 or higher.
Pot: 205Turn - 9
Villain acts out of turn, assuming hero checked and goes to bet 100. Hero tells him that he hasn't acted yet, and then bets 100. Villain hems and haws and calls.He wasn't acting when he acted out of turn. He really thought I had checked. I know that he has no idea what I have at this point, but his range is also large as well. By betting when he was going to bet I show a lot of strength (even though this isn't the line I would take with a monster but he doesn't know that). This might help me narrow his range a bit.
Pot: 405River - 10
Hero checks. Villain checks.Is it worth a value bet here?
