      Hello SnoWonder,

      Actually don't understand why you ain't just betting yourself on river. There is like so much value from worse pairs from those loose stations. And as played not much to do than Call, I wont fold my hand here.

      Best regards.

      Thanks, I stopped betting to try and keep the pot size down. After two calls i began to think he may have the 8 (which he did!), but that didn't work, he still ended up AI.

      Very unlucky but you should bet river for value here. You have the 3rd-4th nuts, just unlucky he had the 8 this time.
