Just played a short session and one hand annoyed me. I can't make my mind up if I just donked it up good style or saved myself some money here.
I had 43 hands on the villain.
3 bet 0
On the only hand I've seen him show he had pocket 8's in the big blind and he checked it down all three streets when overcards hit on the flop. He seems passive as all hell. The issue of course is the small hand sample
Full Tilt - $0.05 NL - Holdem - 9 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 3
Hero (MP): $5.12
SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05
Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has K K
fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.15, fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.35, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.20
Flop: ($0.77, 2 players) 2 9 7
Hero bets $0.77, BTN raises to $1.54, fold
BTN wins $2.16
Two lines of thinking here. The first is whether or not I should have 4 bet pre. Every instinct I have says that I should, and I've just been back through my stats for the last month. I've played 22k hands this month. I've had KK and faced a pf 3 bet 14 times, and I've 4 bet or called all in on every occasion until this one. Something stopped me, I couldn't get off the idea that he had AA, and looking at the betting I still can't shake it.
So, am I shit? Or did I make a good fold here? I can't put him on 99 after seeing how he played the hand earlier, so the only hand that beats me is AA, unless I'm being a dunce
