Played this hand over the weekend at my monthly home game. I realize the cbet was far too big, but now that we are in this spot, I'm wondering if we have enough equity to call here based on villain's range. When I get a chance, I'll do the work myself in PokerStove, but wanted to post anyway.
John - Very agrro, bluffy guy who likes to make big bets w/ air or very little equity when he sees weakness. Not a strong or bright player at all. Just bluffs whenever he thinks it will work, regardless of opponent(s) or his cards. If a bunch of people limp, then he loves to raise big and pick up those chips. If he suspects someone is cbetting, then he will occasionally x/r or x/shove (it's often a shove based on his stack almost always being short) just because he thinks that person doesn't have anything. Essentially, he isn't afraid to bluff, regardless of stack sizes, opponents, equity, etc. This is important here because I don't think he considered the fact that his shove wasn't that big relative to the pot.
With all of the being said, I'm wondering if we have enough equity to call here. Like I said, I'll do some PokerStove work later, but feel free to post thoughts beforehand or to do the PS work yourself if you're so inclined
