Know your Villain...

An interesting situation came up a couple of days ago.

There was a villain who seemed to be targeting me on numerous tables. He is a losing reg that I have encountered before but he moves up and down the leagues.

Anyway, he was at NL50 on this day and so was I and he seemed to be playing every pot that I was and he is only a 13/10 so its hard to be in all the same pots as another nit.

He was making lots of moves on me pretty aggressively and I felt like he was just f***ing with me. I folded to his aggression a few times but then I took a stand and his holding is pretty lol. I will be playing back a lot more at him and calling him down light too.

While the hand is not that interesting the build up was:

Poker Stars, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

BB: $56.35 (112.7 bb)
MP: $54.63 (109.3 bb)
CO: $53.43 (106.9 bb)
Hero (BTN): $50 (100 bb)
SB: $60.14 (120.3 bb)

Preflop: Hero is BTN with A of diamonds J of diamonds
2 folds, Hero raises to $1, SB folds, BB raises to $3.50, Hero calls $2.50

Flop: ($7.25) 9 of diamonds A of hearts 9 of clubs (2 players)
BB bets $4.50, Hero calls $4.50

Turn: ($16.25) 5 of spades (2 players)
BB bets $13.19, Hero calls $13.19

River: ($42.63) 6 of clubs (2 players)
BB bets $35.16, Hero calls $28.81 and is all-in

Results: $100.25 pot ($2.50 rake)
Final Board: 9 of diamonds A of hearts 9 of clubs 5 of spades 6 of clubs
BB showed 3 of hearts T of hearts and won $0.00 (-$50 net)
Hero showed A of diamonds J of diamonds and won $97.75 ($47.75 net)

Don't let them mess with you..... Adjust...
