GG Poker $100 table, 4 handed. I opened BU KT97ds and a gambler type of guy with 75% VPIP called me at SB. I triple pot A-high board but it didn’t go through. He was winning and I thought maybe he would fold even an AQ against a pot size bet trying to protect the result. Opinions?
I don’t mind betting the flop against such a wide preflop range. You have plenty of fold equity and outs to hit. I would strongly prefer a small bet size, such as half pot. He has so much trash, which he has to fold against any size. Once you pot the flop, his range becomes much stronger, which makes bluffing turn/river less profitable.
As played (potting flop) I would shutdown on turn.
Keep in mind, that by betting smaller on the flop, you will have more fold equity on later streets and you also give yourself a better price to win the pot on the flop.
