Default Re: 400NL T8o blind defence

Ok here's the same version from the buttons pov.

Villain in this hand is the bb, whose blinds I have been raising continually just to build pots in position with any 2 cards. The table is weak, and I am not getting reraised.

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $ Hero (6 max, 6 handed) converter

UTG ($623)
MP ($371.20)
CO ($171)
Hero ($391.60)
SB ($151.10)
Villian (BB) ($511.60)

Preflop: Hero is BB with [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]. SB posts a blind of $2.
<font color="#666666">3 folds</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to $8</font>, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, Villian calls $4.
<font color="blue"> Exactly the situation I want, a double sized limped pot with marginal holdings for both of us with me in position </font>

Flop: ($18) 9[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], 7[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 3[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
Villian checks, <font color="#CC3333">Hero bets $15</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to $45</font>, Button calls $30.
<font color="blue"> Villians c/r here could be overcards, but he is fairly scared and if I call his bet he'll shutdown with them. Therefore I can call this c/r with one pair, given I felt this move coming. He could also have clubs, or a strong hand. </font>

Turn: ($108) 4[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
Villian checks, Button checks.
<font color="blue">He would bet here with any hand thats top pair or better here, after all he has no clue what I have, and there are draws out. Therefore I think he's on clubs, possibly middle pair, or maybe just overcards. He has no idea what i'm thinking because my vpip is 57, so its unlikely he's being tricky here. There's a reasonable chance A high is good. I could bet my A[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] 2[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] but I'd hate a check raise, and clubs are looking likely for him here, and a club on the river will get his money anyway against me. </font>

River: ($108) 2[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">Villian bets $50</font>
<font color="blue">Well he's not got a monster, and he didnt hit this turn or river, so he's possibly got a weak 9, but in that case he'd probably check. So he may have A9, or has clubs and wants me to fold Ace high, or any medium pair I might have. There's of course a chance I'm beat, but at 3-1 Im surely good here 25% of the time. </font>

(I wasnt villian btw this is just how I'd think if i was a donk who minraised on the button)
