With apologies to Jordan, here's my very own episode of You Decide. I know how this hand went down, and want to know how you would have played it. It's friendly home game with $.25/.50 blinds. You're about $100 into the game, and there's probably $600 on the table. Some folks have bought in for $50 once, some for $50 - 60 several times. You've built your stack up to a respectable amount, probably around $160 when you're dealt Ac-Qc in the straddle. You have straddled, because that's what you do. Every. Orbit. You have a loose table image, to say the least, but you've played fairly tight so far tonight. Player in Middle Position limps in, as do a couple of the others, and you raise the $1 straddle to $6. Middle Position limper calls, as does the Big Blind.
Your read on MP limp/caller is pretty straightforward player, but you haven't really played much with him. He's not used to playing for this much money, but plays fairly good ABC poker. Big Blind is aggressive, and sees about as many flops as you do, so his calling range preflop is pretty massive. He didn't re-raise, so the Hammer is not in play.
Flop comes down Ah-6d-7d, and Big Blind leads out for $15. You think for a second and decide to find out where you are - you raise to $45. MP limper folds, and BB goes all in almost immediately for another $68.
What does he have, what do you do, and what do you think I did right or wrong in the hand up to this point? I'll post the real life results on Monday.
UPDATE - I initially posted the flop incorrectly as having the Qs. I later remembered that it was the Ah. It's been updated. This is what happens when I don't take notes.
