A Weird TT Hand

Villain is a 13/11 good aggressive player, capable of playing very strange at times too though.

BB: $40.10
UTG: $72.45
UTG+1: $100
MP1: $107.75
Hero (MP2): $98.50
CO: $78.40
BTN: $60.50
SB: $79.20

Pre-Flop: T T dealt to Hero (MP2)
UTG folds, UTG+1 raises to $4, MP1 folds, Hero calls $4, CO calls $4, 3 folds

I opted not to 3-bet pre-flop just because I feel like this allows him to play pretty perfectly against me, plus there is still a fair bit of action to come behind me. I know the villain raises a fair wide range in EP, His range is probably any pair, big aces, and suited connectors from KQs to 54s.

Flop: ($13.50) 3 2 3 (3 Players)
UTG+1 bets $10, Hero calls $10, CO folds

Once again I feel if I raise here it allows him to play pretty well perfect against me. So I just call, planning to evaluate on the turn. He plays a lot of tables and he generally isn’t going to double barrel bluff a regular like me I don’t think.

Turn: ($33.50) J (2 Players)
UTG+1 bets $16, Hero …

I’m not quite sure what to make of his bet sizing here. I was planning to fold to a decent double barrel, but this just seems weird. Did he just turn jacks full? Has he got 77-99? QJs? AK?

  • If you are going to continue I think you have to flat call again and fold to a river bet. He’s not triple barrelling often at all.
