Hero calls $23.75

Even though he's an utter donkey, I feel like there are 2 hand types that have me (Ax & Tx), and 2 draws that never got there. I don't believe he's ever showing up with a boat here, as he wants to go for value rather than bomb.  However, I feel as though he's bombing the river often enough (41%) that he has to show up with a good portion of air.  This was the first time I bluff caught him on the night.  Good to know that he's capable of a river "shove."

Final Pot: $71.25
Hero shows Qc Qh
MP1 shows Jh Qs
Hero wins $68.25

  1. I love snapping these guys off - they play half their hands, and represent the nuts on every river. The math, she don't add up!

    I'm interested in your tiny cbet size - what was the thinking there? Would a check behind work on this type of player?

  2. I feel as though I'm going to get check / raised with strong Aces and better, which is why I bet small such that my loss is minimal. However, when he c/c's, I can put him on mostly draws (mainly club draws).

    I check the turn to pot control, because I'm not 100% sure that he's on a draw - he could have weak Aces show up here, looking for a cheap showdown as well. I'm finding that a lot of the time, checking the turn induces a TON of river bluffs with these types of players.

    By the river, no draws have gotten there, and he's repping monster / air by his pot sized shove (I think he had like $2 behind). Given his monkey stats, I have trouble believing he's value bet shoving on me.

  3. I can't imagine not calling here given his fish stats.

  4. Since moving over to Bodog, it's been tough coming up with the WWYDs. I suppose that's the reason you see a lot more of the hands that make me smile...
