Your image is tight/aggressive but you've been losing a lot of pots and have had to fold to aggression post-flop.
Your opponent is loose and aggressive and likes to make moves, he has built-up a massive stack by playing aggro and running good.
You raise AA on the button and villian calls from the BB.
Flop 667 with two hearts (you have the Ace of Hearts) and villian checks to you: What do you bet and why?

What's your play?

(25NL)? Only been posting online since 2011 and still don't know all the shorthand.
In this situ I'm not going to try to lay in the weeds with AA, I'll make a big bet, a semi "test bet". Not the time to let villian hang around and catch some cards.
I think we've all kicked ourselves for trying to get too cute with AA!

I make a 1/3 to 1/2 pot bet here. the player in the blind could have almost anything if he's loose and the flop could have smacked him upside the head. If he calls he almost certainly has something here. So what happened?

Assuming reg stacks for 25NL, then I'm starting the barrel train bet/bet/bet. Sizing ~3/4pot seems fine vs. aggro. He should have a ridic wide c/r range on this board with so much air and we can either click back a small 3bet if we think he'll spazz or flat the flop and raise his likely 100% bet on the turn.Fish on a heater

You bet just over 1/2 the pot and villian thinks for a minute and then calls. Turn is the Jack of hearts giving you the nut flush draw to go along with your overpair. What's your play now and what kind of range do you put him on?
July 17th, 2012 #6
7 w/good kicker or, being he's a loose player, flush or straight draw. That 1/2 pot bet may not have been enough to get a loose player off the hand. I'm ruling out a 6. If you wanna play you gotta pay, now is the time for a pot size bet, or if I'm short stacked, shove it all in. Obviously I want him off a possible straight draw and I'm not worried about a flush.

Bet again zzzzz, I hope something interesting happens on the river. Villains range is whatever.

...It gets interesting on the Turn actually: You bet and he check-raises, almost pot committing you (you could still fold on the river but you're getting about 4-to-1) if you just call the turn... at thisp oint you say "I should have checked behind" but your stuck now so what do you do?
July 31st, 2012 #9
Hell no you shouldn't have checked behind, and if you say that to yourself just b/c you're frustrated that you got check-raised, you need to rethink your attitude.
With your read on villain, I would just get it in here. He could definitely be pulling some kind of bluff/semi-bluff, and even if you get all-in against a flush, you've got 11 outs. Call/call might be a little better than a straight shove, but that's up to you.

It's 25nl, your recent image doesn't matter. If he's a fish, your complete image doesn't matter at all.
Raise pre for value
Bet flop for value
Bet/fold turn for value unless you have odds to flush up. If you've seen him x/r the turn before as a bluff or with a "thin value" hand then call/call.
