1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.50, 4 folds, BTN raises to $2.50, Hero calls $2.25, 1 fold, UTG+1 calls $2
Flop: ($8.00) J A 2 (3 players)
Hero checks, UTG+1 checks, BTN bets $4, Hero calls $4, UTG+1 folds
button is agro but with Utg+1 behind me I feel its better to flat call his cbet just in UTG+1 limped a big ace or pocket JJ or something nasty.
he folds after my call so he's outta the way.
Turn: ($16.00) K (2 players)
Hero checks, BTN checks
I check planning on calling if he fires again, I don't want to get check raised here because I'll have a hard time determining AJ or AK and AJ and AK are definately in his range along with alot else so I'm waiting to see what his action here on the turn is, well, he checks behind me. Now I'm a bit worried he might have two pair.
River: ($16.00) 8 (2 players)
Hero checks, BTN bets $8, Hero requests TIME, Hero raises to $27.50
Now the river, I was content to play this safe and check it down on the river but now his river bet changes my mind. He has to be pretty sure I have an ace, and if he has a good hand my thought is he would bet at least 12-13 for value with his AJ or AK and frankly I don't think he checks behind the turn with either of those with a flush draw out there unless maybe he was on the draw. So, my turn fear of his check behind gone I just decide he's weak and I made a mistake by not putting him all in, I think I left like 4 or 5 in his stack by only raising to 27 but is this donkish, was I smelling fear correctly or did I make a bonehead raise. I can take it, be truthful.
Final Pot: $32.00
