The opponent in this BB plays like a 4/8-8/16 typical player, he is aware of the pot size. MP is a total action donkey, but I have to beware his dangerous bluffs - he always claims a piece of every hand that has a 4 flush or a possible straight, he bluffs a lot post flop and plays a lot of hands pre-flop by limping in a ton.
3 limpers to me, I over-limp with A 4 , limps around to the button who raises, SB calls, BB calls, we all call - 16 BB in the pot.
Flop: A34 rainbow with a . BB leads out, MP calls, I raise, everyone else folds and its 3 to the turn for 12BB.
Turn 8 . Checks to me, I bet, BB calls, MP folds.
River 3 BB leads out.
Whats his range of hands? Should I raise? Why/Why not?
I think 34 is a likely hand here. I\'d give him 32, 34, 35, A3 (discounted), A8+, and maybe something like 56 for a bluff.
Interesting, i really didn\'t think he would lead that flop with a hand like 32 or 35.
River - I suck at poker, villain got an extra bet from me. I assigned him a range of hands including 34s or Ax only - it just seemed unlikely that he would lead into this field with anything less than an Ax hand or 2 pair, and I expected a slowplay with hands like 25s. The villain held 36o which really baffled me, it just seemed out of context with his likely holdings based on his flop play, I think I mangled this one pretty bad.
unless you think you can bluff him off a big ace
Unless I\'m reading the hand wrong, you wouldn\'t be bluffing him off a big A.
If this player plays like a typical 4/8 - 8/16 player I think he is either on a stone cold bluff or has some goofy 3, but I think he is raising somewhere with A3 or 34.
I vote for call>fold>raise.
