New to posting here, so I hope this follows proper etiquette (and is in the right place).
The following is a situation I came across playing at Bally's in Las Vegas recently at the 1-2 NL tables, and I was hoping to get some feedback on whether or not I am appropriately ranging other players' cards.
A quick set up for the situation is that this was a relatively fresh table. The only significant shift of money was during a 3 way all-in, and the two players who bricked it bought back in for about $200 each. Everyone was sitting at around $200, except for the winner of that hand. (I think this might be important for some perspective and bet sizing coming up.)
Anyway, so here is the hand (and feel free to critique my play if you wish!):
I am dealt K ♠ K ♣ in early position and raise $15 pre-flop.
One caller from mid position, and everyone else folds.
Flop is... 2 ♣ 6 ♣ 2 ♠
Decide to do a defensive c-bet for another $15 in (and in retrospect, this might be something I would adjust next time). Villain reraises to $30. Imagining that he is not playing a 2 after the pre-flop call, I call.
Turn is... 8 ♦
This time, I put my foot on the gas (at least, I think I do) and lead out with $60. Assuming he does not have a 2 (and the low likelihood of him actually having pocket aces), I felt it was safe at this point. Maybe he was even trying to chase the club flush draw? A possibility, but that idea gets thrown out with what happens next.
River is... 5 ♥
I see the card and make the assumption that I am in the clear (but could this be a false assumption based on his previous plays?). Doubt he hit the straight with the cards needed and the previous actions. Would you potentially be wary of a low pocket pair here that might have connected?
Anyway, between the board and his play, I didn't feel that concerned, and I shoved all-in for my remaining stack (Around $110). He insta-calls, but when I flip over my kings, he mucks.
Out of curiosity... What do you think he has? What was his possible range off of that?
He called pretty confidently, so a part of me assumes a pocket pair ranging from 1010 to QQ, and he probably thought, like me, that the pair was good since it was beating everything else visible on the board.
What do you think he mucked?
