A hand

Did I misplay this?

$100.00 USD NL Texas Hold'em -
Seat 7 is the button
Seat 1: Deanna87 ( $111.50 USD )
Seat 2: gregson01 ( $38.00 USD )

Gregson is 50/4 1.4. A sort of standard loose-passive player who is increasingly rare on Stars and Full Tilt, but not uncommon here.

Seat 3: fish ( $254.81 USD )

Fish is 88/26 Agg 2.1. He had a lot of money when I sat down, some of which had found its way into my pocket. He might have won the jackpot rather than won it in actual play.

Seat 4: miquimi ( $127.90 USD )
Seat 6: alen1986 ( $100.00 USD )
Seat 7: Hero ( $204.12 USD )
Seat 8: zindinono ( $108.73 USD )
Seat 9: MrNomrcy ( $103.48 USD )
Seat 10: rekcut ( $97.10 USD )

zindinono posts small blind [$0.50 USD].
MrNomrcy posts big blind [$1.00 USD].
alen1986 posts big blind [$1.00 USD].

** Dealing down cards **
Dealt to Hero [ J♡; A♡; ]
rekcut folds
Deanna87 folds
gregson01 calls [$1.00 USD]
fish calls [$1.00 USD]
miquimi folds
alen1986 checks
Hero raises [$3.00 USD]

This style works for me at these tables. I'm probably something like 14%/14% in open play. It's exploitable, of course, but not many players in these games seem to know the correct way to exploit it.

zindinono folds
MrNomrcy folds
gregson01 calls [$2.00 USD]
fish calls [$2.00 USD]
alen1986 folds

What we got? About ten bucks in the pot. Note that this is already an unusual hand in that it's deep stack.

** Dealing Flop ** [ T♠, K♣; 3♡; ]

gregson01 checks
fish checks
Hero bets [$5.00 USD]

Once again, a style that's working for me. Range of 40% to 60% of pot as a Continuation Bet. Theory is that bigger bets in this game seem to help opponents make fewer mistakes. These smaller bets get calls from hands that are behind with either five or six outs. The important thing is that I have to get way from the hands sufficiently often when opponents hit these outs.

In this particular case I'm drawing. Against two opponents I'll probably CB in a ratio of 50:50 or thereabouts for balance.

gregson01 calls [$5.00 USD]
fish calls [$5.00 USD]

I'm ready to walk away from this hand now if I fail to hit on the turn and anyone bets. Gregson is unlikely to call this CB without a King. Fish could be any pair, or even less. Obviously I check behind on turn if I miss and it's checked round.

** Dealing Turn ** [ Q◊; ]

Gives me the nut straight.

gregson01 checks
fish bets [$11.00 USD]
Hero calls [$11.00 USD]

Rainbow board, gregson had called the flop, and I'm happier having him in than out (he is the short stack so my vulnerability to him is not enormous).

gregson01 raises [$29.50 USD]
fish calls [$18.50 USD]
