Young player in the Button position had been at the table for short time (app. 15 min). He Played a couple hands, nothing to note. He placed a $10.00 straddle on the button with this hand which he hadn’t done before. I look down at AQ and raised $30.00, CO called, BTN called. Everything is self explanatory in the graphic. I folded because of the board texture. Villian left the table about 15 min. after playing this hand. Options 1.) Should I have stacked off against V in this situation ? 2.) Not having a lot of history with this new player at the table should I have gone into a check/call mode and kept my hand concealed?
