Default The good old 5-bet light.

funny hand i want to share:
playing live 10/20 NLHE in baden out of boredome after busting in the EPT while waiting for a friend.
following scenario:

young scandinavian player sits down in seat1 and buys in for 3k, im in seat2 and cover. he posts in CO+1, its folded to him and he makes it 80, i pretend to look at my cards and make it 260 other players fold and he reraises to 800ish. i think hes full of it so i put him all-in. he tanks for a minute or so and finally folds.

i table my T3s and the other players - mostly old, nitty guys who bought in for the minimum of 500 - go crazy while i explain that i would have folded T3o but suited this hand is just too strong.

beat: probably difficult to bluff them now
brag: i dont play much live because its too boring but feeling damn good right now.
variance: even if this play is -EV you cannot underestimate the implied tilt factor if he happens to have a big pair and i suck out while having direct position on villian for the entire session.

well, about 10mins after that hand a completely drunk player joined the game who was raising every hand, basically just betting random amounts any time it was his turn to act without any regard for the board, his holecards or players in the hand. so the whole dynamic changed and everybody was just trying to take his money. since im obviously a very nice guy he wanted to become friends with me and talked nonstop to me in broken german (he was hungarian) which was very annoying. a couple of orbits later ive had enough and left.
