Lots of History with UTG Villian. LAG game, plays many hands strongly, tough player, hard to read, loud and always acting “false tells”
PF standard, my turn bet is too large, maybe make it 50, Turn I choose to double barrel to show strength, but since it’s a rainbow board, what he calling me with? River is nothing more than a bluff catcher for me…If that’s what you call it. Betting small for value, what not, hoping he puts me on AA, AK, KQ. I could argue I should just shove with 180 behind, making river bet 330 since the pot was already 560. That would have put more pressure on him for sure, but not certain he’s good enough to make that fold.
Truthfully I just got ahead of myself and the whole “Aggressive Action Thereom” This hand was early in game and there was no need to get myself in the hole on a bluff against gambling LAG. On the positive, I believe the $400 I spewed established a fearless image for me that I’m not to be messed with, not afraid to triple barrel, and be aggressive. I feel this hand will help me win many more pots later in the session.
*** $410 investment into image. I should've shoved river
