7-handed. The semi-manical guy and his calling station girlfriend are away from the table - his presence has made the game much higher variance for everyone.
Villain 1 in this hand has been fairly tight preflop, initial reaction is that he is at least a semi-thinking player.
Villain 2 has been tangled up in the maniac's preflop aggression, often losing on the river with the "best" starting hands. So far, he has been fairly straightforward preflop by raising with decent holdings.
1 fold, villain#1 raises, 1 fold, villain#2 calls, 2 folds, i 3bet AK from BB, 2 calls.
Flop: QJ 6 (small non straight card), 9.5 small bets
I bet, 2 callers.
I've been cbetting anything i've raised preflop at 2/4 and 4/8 vs 1 or 2 opponents -- I'm not sure it's doing anything for me except increasing my variance a lot.
Turn: Q 6.5BB
I check, villain #1 checks, villain #2 bets, I call, villain #1 folds.
I didn't really expect villain #1 to fold, maybe he thought i had at least a pair and he was behind? idk. I usually wouldn't expect villain #2 to bet w/o a Q, but he's kinda aggro so maybe he could have a AJ/KJ/pair type of hand.
River: K 8.5BB
I check, villain bets, call cuz the pot is large?
