Default Very Interesting 5/10 Hand #1

SB is maniacal. (76/32/3.5 after 500 hands)
Button is also very LAG, and almost as crazy. (77/39/1.2 after 200 hands)


Party Poker 5/10 Hold'em (6 max, 5 handed) pokerhand.org hand converter

Preflop: Hero is BB with T[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], 3[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, Button calls, SB completes, Hero checks.

Flop: (3 SB) T[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 8[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 5[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(3 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">SB bets</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Button 3-bets</font>, SB calls, Hero calls.

Turn: (6 BB) Q[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(3 players)</font>
SB checks, Hero checks, Button checks.

River: (6 BB) 8[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(3 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">SB bets</font>, Hero?

Any idea what to do?

In the actual hand, I called, button raised and SB called, now what?

I'd call with second best pair since they are both so aggressive and especially since they both checked the turn.

Trapped between lags with MP, not fun. Given the turn action and that you now split with hands that beat you before I suppose trying for a 1BB showdown is alright but I don't call the raise. Maybe I will next time though depending on what they showed.

Can I ask what you planned on the turn? Check-fold or call down if button bet and SB folded? How about a bet fold on the turn instead? That is one drawy flop especially for LAGs with those PFR numbers that decided to limp pre-flop. Might even be profitable to call down the crazy if he raises again and SB folds.

SB was the crazy one. Or crazier at least. On the turn, I was calling one bet no matter what. Betting the turn may have been a better option, but who knew he would check?? If I bet the turn, it could very well come back 3 bets to me, and I think getting to the SD cheaply is my top priority in this hand.

As far as plans go, other than calling a turn bet, I had none. Making a plan is virtually pointless against these guys. They like to change our plans every time they act.

That's just odd. ummm...call? I guess and call the raise. I think we have to factor in that these guys are FOS frequently.
