Default Boring KK hand

Live at the FW 5/5 game

I have been playing for about an hour. I've been playing pretty snug (for me). I have about 4k behind. Villain has about the same.

Villain has also been pretty snug and he seems ABC.

Villain raises UTG + 1 to 50. I cold call in MP1 with black KK. Rest fold.

Flop comes: Q [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] 9 [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] 2 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]. Pot = 110

He thinks. Checks. I check behind.

Turn: Q [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] 9 [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] 2 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] (Q [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]) Pot = 110

He bets 75 pretty quickly. I call.

River: Q [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] 9 [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] 2 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] Q [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] (K [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]) Pot = 260

Villain thinks. Villain bets 75. I raise to 300.


I'm pretty sure this is standard. My real question is how often do people bet the flop, call C/R? Fold/raise turn? Is the amount on river too much if villain has no Q?

Can you explain your reasoning behind not betting the flop? I am betting this flop in most situations.

Because against this villain I think his range is REALLY small raising to 10x the BB first in. I'm either absolutely crushed or absolutely crushing. Plus we're so deep I don't need to inflate this pot or anything.

Of course it is. But who cares? So is 200. So is 150. The important point is that it is too SMALL if he DOES have a Q or an underboat. I think you should make it 500 on the river. The rest is a standard line. Of course there are others, too.

Hey,
I like a bomb at the river or $300, either way is fine. I would never bet any less than $300 though.

I agree with theworstplayer, its not like your getting called here even for only 300 by less than a queen, especially given that you have two of the three kings covered. May as well bet 500+ and see what hes willing to spend on trips.

either A.) you're a complete moron, or B.) (more likely) you didn't see the river was a KING!
