  1. How is this call profitable here? Calling a 1/2 size bet on the river on a double paired board and poor kicker? Was there something about this guys AF, VPIP or Win at Show % that warranted a call?

  2. Not quite sure but I believe this guy is pretty wide on his ranges. His check throughs didn't make a whole lotta sense, and my thought was his river bet was 2 paired board - ace high.
