Hand 1 of Double Barrel Challenge
$1/2 Live Game in Las Vegas

1-EP and 1-MP limpers.
Hero on BTN with AKo raises $10.
SB ($150 behind) and MP ($110 behind) call. (Pot $34)

Flop is Jd 8s 3c
All check to Hero, who bets $20.
SB calls and MP folds. (Pot $74)

Turn is 9s
SB checks. Hero bets $25.
SB calls (Pot $124)

River 5h
SB checks. Hero bets $35.
SB folds.

Villian appeared to be a TAG. I had only been at the table about 15 minutes.

1. Fold top pair+? No
2. Fold medium pairs? Yes
3. Fold draws? No
4. Float you again? No
5. Raise worse than 2pr+? No

If I bet pot I think they will fold weaker pairs. If I bet 1.5x pot they might fold weak top pair, but some of these players will call all the way down.<br /><br />*** Forbidden. ***

    Hand 2 of Double Barrel Challenge
    $1/2 Live Game in Las Vegas

    2-MP, CO, BTN, and SB limpers.
    Hero in BB ($185 behind) with AA raises $17.
    CO ($200 behind) calls. (Pot $42)

    Flop is Jh 7s 3c
    Hero bets $30.
    CO calls. (Pot $102)

    Turn is 10s
    Hero bets $40.
    CO calls after tanking for a minute (Pot $182)

    River 9h
    Hero checks.
    CO goes all in ($113).
    Hero folds.

    This was the fifth hand at a new table. Very little in the way of a read on the villain. About 1-1/2 hours later, a similar hand occurred with the villain and another player. Similar river showing 4 to a straight. Villain went all in again (for less $) and the other player called with pocket queens. Villain showed he paired a ten.

    1. Fold top pair+? No, 13%
    2. Fold medium pairs? No, 28%
    3. Fold draws? No, 25%
    4. Float you again? No
    5. Raise worse than 2pr+? Yes, board became scary with 4 to a straight.

    Reviewing hand, villain had an eight in his range, though not a high percentage. Part of my fold decision was based on Ed Miller’s philosophy that $1-2 Vegas players do not go all in without having a strong hand. Since I only had 1 pair, even though they were aces.<br /><br />*** Forbidden. ***
