View Full Version : $20 Heads UP S&G Ah9h in the BB

my opponent and I are pretty much evenly chip stacked with about $1500 each.

My opponent plays loose preflop and postflop but he's not a complete fish.

Earlier in the tournament he called my flop bet with Jc4s on a AdQcKd board, when the pot was $40 and I bet the size of the pot with K9o.

So onto my hand, the blinds are 15-30 and he limps in on the button I pick up Ah9h and raise the pot to $90, he calls.

$180 in the pot and the flop comes down

Kd Th 6h.

I'm first to act. Do I check, bet, 1/2 the pot, bet the size of the pot?

I'd bet about T150 here. I'm happy to take it down right there and if not, I have some nut outs, aces that might be good, and of course, I very well could be ahead right now.

If he calls the flop bet, I lean towards checking most turns that I miss and deciding what to do based on his action.
