This is a hand which came up in a $1/2 nlhe game at Maryland Live recently.
V is to my immediate right. He is very loose and raises most hands pre-flop and still loose but not at all agressive post flop. I would describe his typical hand as raise pre-flop, get called by four people, completely miss the flop but call bets anyway then go runner runner straight. He doubled up shortly after the new table opened and his stack was greater > $400.
I have not been playing a lot of hands but playing them agressively when I do. I have eeked out a small win so far. I am up to about $300. I have K ♣ Q ♣ in middle position.
Folds to V who limps to me. I raise to $12. One caller and folds to V who calls.
Flop- K ♥ 9 ♣ 3 ♦
V bets $15, I raise to $35, folds to V who calls.
Turn- K ♥ 9 ♣ 3 ♦ K ♠
V checks- I bet $60, V calls.
River- K ♥ 9 ♣ 3 ♦ K ♠ 6 ♣
V pushes out a stack of chips which turns out to be $40.
V has called a raise on the flop, check called the turn then bet a harmless river. I have trips with second kicker. I cant put him on AK , he didn't raise pre-flop. He has got to have a boat but can I really fold for $40 into a pot of $260?
