You played the hand just fine. Your open-raise was standard play.
You get a call from the BTN which may translate to either:
- a loose player having potential hands (eg. K8s, 75s, J9s, Q8o)
- a tight player with average or good holding that can't re-raise like
- a small to middle pair
- a position-wise call. He saw you raised from MP, so he lure you out after your CBet and he has position.
The Flop is dry, no flush or straight draws but not so without dangers. The
J feeds in a number of marginal calling hands like
J7,J8,J9,JT,KJ and there is a little army of calling hands that include
Ax,Kx,Qx,Jx and other
small pairs, although you have nothing to be afraid and a Cbet is required.
He called your Cbet. My play is to just check and not push it. Your play from the very start is to set mine and trying to win with a CBet, no? Although your opponent is still here, calling you. What that tells you? To me this translates to these cases:
Jx. A very feasible case, there are a number of
Jx calling hands.
- A pair like
88,99 He thinks you'll shutdown after the CBet so he try to value bet you out.
- A slowplaying set.
In fact his
1/3 bet at the end seems like a bet that
wants you to call. Bluffs are more expensive than a
1/3 so you have to believe him for either a
J or something better, without reads. Your fold was OK and a huge part of your set mining strategy, nothing to be worry about. But calling with
66 on a board with 3 cards higher than your
66 and 2 of them on typical calling range like
Q, J would be a spewy play.
