Playing a 9-handed 5/10 game last week at Bellagio, effective stacks $1500. Decent recreational player opens to $40 UTG+2, mediocre pro calls MP, good pro calls HJ, I call with 9s 8d (Edit: added suited to clarify that I don’t have a heart) on Button (a little questionable, but can’t be too bad if blinds don’t squeeze much), BB calls.
Flop ($205) Jc 8h 6h. Checks to me, I bet $100, folds back to good pro in HJ who calls.
Turn ($405) 5d. Both check.
River ($405) 2s. Villain bets $600. Hero?
Post your thoughts and preferred play in the comments, and I’ll do my best to respond and post results as well as my own thoughts at the end of the week.
