Heads Up Hand of the Week February 6, 2009

Posted on Feb 06, 2009 by Gugel in Hand Reading and Tells

A guys sits down at a $200NL heads up table with a shortstack, about $100 or so.  We played 9 hands at this point, but he hasnt folded preflop from the SB or the BB even once.

Gugel (Button) ($207.50)
SB ($97.40)

Preflop: Hero is Button with 7d, 5s
Hero raises to $4, SB raises to $6, Hero calls $2

Flop: ($12) 7c, Qs, 2h (2 players)
SB bets $10, Hero calls $10

Turn: ($32) 2c (2 players)
SB bets $81.40 (All-In), Hero calls $81.40

River: ($194.80) 8h (2 players, 1 all-in)

What do you put the villain on?  Would he jam the turn with a two?  Would he jam the turn with a queen?  Wouldnt he want to string me along and get more value from his strong hand by betting $20 on the turn and THEN jamming the river?  His bet is screaming Please fold! and against a bad opponent who isnt capable of leveling me, that means I should call.

    Seems like a pretty easy call imo He came in half stacked, typically means the player is pretty weak thinking he can be overaggro and steal some money or maybe 2x then run. I would put him on something like AJo here, maybe AK? Very unlikely he shoves w/Queen here, there is a possibility that he is just going to continue being a donk if he has a deuce here as it is virtually impossible to put him on. The min raise back PF could either mean he has a huge hand or he is just being a donk, the shove on the turn makes more sense that he has rags imo.
