Hey guys, played this hand earlier today. I THINK I played it correctly but not too sure, kinda interesting spot maybe because of the stack sizes.

Info on the villain is that he is very aggro post flop, and 0/4 fold to F cbet stat. Didn't have a ton of hands on him and I regular these stakes for about a month and a half now, so probably a rec player.

PokerStars Hand #119667027222: Hold'em No Limit ($0.05/$0.10 USD) - 2014/08/04 14:01:47 ET
Table 'Dagmar II' 6-max Seat #2 is the button

Seat 4: BuTop S. ($10.15 in chips)
Seat 5: GainByPain ($10.15 in chips)
Seat 6: PETER ISMAEL ($10.45 in chips)
Silken218: posts small blind $0.05
BuTop S.: posts big blind $0.10
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to Silken218 [Qd Qc]
GainByPain: folds
frontmaster: folds
VARIAG101: raises $0.25 to $0.35
Silken218: raises $0.75 to $1.10
BuTop S.: calls $1
VARIAG101: calls $0.75
*** FLOP *** [Tc 9s 2h]
Silken218: bets $2.10
BuTop S.: folds
VARIAG101: calls $2.10
*** TURN *** [Tc 9s 2h] [Ks]
Silken218: checks
VARIAG101: bets $3.58
Silken218: ??

I mean folding is probably out of the question, but do I shove the turn? what can i expect to get called by, that I beat? Or do I call turn and call river? This guy was hyper aggro post flop. But not really a station.

Thanks for the feedback

GL at the tables umb up:


EDIT:I mean after thinking about it for a bit, this might not be that interesting of a spot. But I'm asking about it just because i ended up not taking the MOST conventional line, and would like to hear if you guys who take the same line as me or not.

Hi Silken,

Vs. a recreational player who's favorite mistake is over-aggressing, I prefer to check/call turn and river. check shoving seems hard to get called by worse, while check-calling exploits his biggest leak by encouraging him to do more of it. The expectation is that this player type will make enough betting mistakes (bluff+bad value bets with Tx type hands) to make our line profitable.
