At the Oaks...
There was a player who people view as very tight at the no limit tournament today. He took advantage of his image with a very interesting move.
He would limp in with a range of hands. If the board was paired on the flop he would bet the turn making it look like he has three of a kind.
If he went to the turn, and the board paired, he would bet into the aggressor with big bets. Example: Flop 9-8-2 He calls one opponents bet. The turn is an 8, and he moves all-in or makes a big bet.
After watching this for almost 90 minutes, he was building a big stack.
He finally lost an all-in bet against me. Under the gun, I had to make a move and moved all-in with A-J. He called with Q-Q. I hit the Ace on the river. That cut his stack in half.
But, the question is: What do you think of this play--specifically the play on the turn when the board pairs on the turn, and he acts first and bets into his opponent?
It worked all day long. Maybe I'll have to add it as move #102.
