Heads Up Hand of Week February 13th, 2009

Posted on Feb 13, 2009 by Gugel in Hand Reading and Tells

Villain has been calling my 3bets very light.  I 3bet him 8 times and hes called 6 of them.  He folds to my continuation bets around half the time which is a bit loose considering Ive been cbetting rather conservatively.  He moderately aggressive on all streets.

Hero (SB) ($183.70)
Button ($238.20)

Preflop: Hero is SB with Js, Jh
Button raises to $3, Hero raises to $11, Button calls $8

Flop: ($22) 3s, 9s, 8h (2 players)
Hero bets $14, Button calls $14

Turn: ($50) 6h (2 players)
Hero bets $33, Button calls $33

River: ($116) 7d (2 players)
Hero checks, Button bets $180.20 (All-In), Hero calls $125.70 (All-In)

Total pot: $367.40 | Rake: $0.50

Looking back, I think my call on the river was pretty bad.  I should have folded.  Heres why:

Hes calling 3bets very light and he could easily have QT, JT, 9T, 8T, even 7T in his range.  I really dont think he jams all in this deep with 2 pair here, but its not completely out of the question if he puts me on an overpair (and its unlikely I have a T in my range).  The only think Im really beating here is a double float or a busted flush draw that decided to take a shot at the pot.  I do not think hes nearly good enough to put me on an overpair and turn a made, but weak hand like A8 into a bluff.

The bad players are not the ones that make mistakes, they are the ones that dont learn from them.
