* FLOP * is AT9r.

As much as I want to put in more bets, I'd just call and check-call most turns, and probably check-call most rivers unless there's some unusual action. Weird action players are a pain in the butt to read, so I don't try very hard to do it. This could be QJ for a free card 4-bet, or it could be AK for the "I has a slowplays AK" tarp. He could also have a set.

My fear is that I don't want to feed money to a set of 9s heads up when I can probably check-call and get to showdown 3-handed with the Frenchman hanging around and get just as many bets in as heads up.

What exactly made his previous check/raises weird? If he's doing it with a draw or complete air I kind of like the idea of check/raising HIM on the turn if it were HU, but with Frenchy almost certainly having an OESD of some sort, I'd rather go five bets now and lead the turn if it's safe.

This is, of course, assuming Weirdo's c/r's don't mean strength. I played live and watched someone call two cold third to act on the flop then cap after it was three-bet behind him with a set of 9's. That was evidently so obvious that both the initial bettor and the flop raiser instantly folded. (The guy who three-bet hung around for a backdoor flush.)

call down, but if a T or A hits, check raise...looks like you are up against set of 99's

Don't know what limit you're playing or the positions of the limpers, but I think anyone holding 99 would have probably raised PF.

I think you are probably still ahead. Lead a safe turn, and call down from there on.

aaron,

nice. i think the overlay from Le Grenouille is a compelling argument for not trying any further aggression.


darsh,

at this point in the session, i don't think i'd seen him showdown anything after his funky c/rs. i'll post a couple later.


buzz,

i said something on STDERR, so check your beration.log.


gaprazor,

if you're so sure he has 99, why not fold the turn (or even the flop)?

just for fun, the turn action:

so i tanked for a moment and tried to figure out what to do. i figured that sets made up a large part of his range here, but his line is so weird that i felt lame just c/c down, so i called the 4bet and donked the turn brick. weirdo raises again, frenchy calls, and i called down.

does anyone just fold to the turn raise? i mean, what do we beat?

I think the position of the limper is improtant here. If he was UTG then 99, TT, and AA could all be hands he would potentially limp in with. I think we can elminate AA though because loose passives don't limp reraise. I am inclined to just call down here because passive players don't usually 4bet without a set. You get a nice overlay from the French player as long as he doesn't hit his open ender.

We beat A9 and T9. Only the most aggressive of players would play those two hands so fast. I don't know if I could do it but folding to the turn raise is probably the best play.
