Blind battles 101

I love the hand to hand combat of blind battles. The villain of this piece was folding his BB way too often (over 60% IIRC), so I was pretty liberally raising from the SB.

In hand one, he plays back on the flop and I fold. In hand two, I started to get the feeling he was getting wise to my SB raises and making a play (he had also been 3betting my raises from the button a lot). The turn jack was a nice card to play back at him. A risky play though, and not one to attempt too often.

Hand three plays out similarly, except with a proper hand in AK I am happy to see a showdown. Sometimes the villain gets lucky on the end.
