if you're gonna fold JJ on the 776 board to a raise, checking behind there on the flop is so much better... why did you bet?

if u check he will bluff into you or you'll get value easily but against someone hyper aggro bet/folding that board is awful imo

[/ QUOTE ]

i agree that checking behind is viable, but i bet for value and to protect my hand becasue i can easily get CCed by draws and by worse one pair hands.

bet folding is no where near awful for a 3x pot bet, i mean seriously? it's risk reward vs this guy, i wrote in my blog response to gabe that i would have called two kings instantly, and two queens after debate. it's mostly having to deal with the % of time he has an overpair and the size of it, and the amount of equity taht his overcard + club draw hands have vs my range.

it is super unfortunate that my hand was at the bottom end of my made hand range for betting that flop, but i folded pretty quickly once he insta shoved. i might have tanked a lil but i think in my mind i folded almost the second he shoved. he was hyper aggro when checked to, but not hyper aggro to CR. my c-bets, in fact, had a tremendous success rate.

[/ QUOTE ]

you think a guy like this is going to check/call with worse hands than JJ often enough to make a flop cbet good? plz

[/ QUOTE ]

lol? yes? tons of gut shots and pairs like two fours that he might ormight not shove?

my hand is strong, but not strong enough to call off 2 or 3 buy ins necessarily. IF that hand is a call (like we could ever know exactly what he does often enough over infinite trials), then it is probably by a narrow margin.

also, pretty hard for you to think the flop is not a bet if you weren't playing him

not ashamed to say that he crushed me HU. Unorthodox style, and more 2pairnog00t than I have had in quite a while.

My impression of his play was very different from what those hands show; he got me over and over with sets, overpairs, and straights, and I rarely got my money in good. Really maddening, actually.

Nice job.

God, from what I've mined/seen that guy is terrible... yeah his style is totally unorthodox.

Weird, because from what I've seen from aejones (aside from your complete lack of game selection) is really good.
