Playing 2/5 NLHE at my local casino.Â Effective stack with primary villain in the hand is approximately $1000 (200 BB); the other player in the hand had about $600-700, I believe.Â We were playing 5 handed at the time.
I raise to $20 on the button with A:club: T:diamond:.Â Only the SB and BB call.Â The flop is A:diamond: Q:club: 9:spade:.Â It checks to me and I decide to check.Â Turn is the 7:heart:.Â It checks to me again and this time I bet $40, the SB check/raises to $140 and the BB folds.
I elected to call the turn based on a read.Â What opponent types would you call the check/raise against?Â What opponent types would you fold to?Â The river was the 8:diamond: and the SB bet $200.Â Given that I thought that calling the check/raise was going to be profitable, what's my plan for this river card (depending on the read on our opponent, of course)?
If I get some comments about the hand, I'll post my thought process and the results.
