      This hand have whole story. Few days ago i had nightmare tilt, throwing many buy ins once again. And this guy took most of it. He is marked as fish, but this fish is playing shark and he have mark me as fish, 100%. Yesterday when i was in red zone he took many buyins from me. I was so piss, so i read some books about tilt. And today i see him on all 5 tables as me and playing against me. I m sure at this hand he had something. At the table i was in fear and didnt see that most ptobably he have weak flush. I was feared he have ace, but will this weak tight player bet ace on flop? I m not sure so i m not sure if dropping nuts here was all right or i made mistake.

      This weak tight plays: 30/1/1

      Well thought about the A, but according to your description Axs or 2-99 could be also according with his preflop move (playing call20 against you, even more if you are tilting against him).

      Lets think if he holds Axs (imagine worst Ax :diamond:) and if he thinks that you are a fish, maybe he floats the flop even that give you free card (but i believe he relies that you are on tilt on that hand).

      In turn :heart: appears and maybe he blocking against draw.

      Finally in River he gets really lucky and try to catch your flush..

      well fold according to my opinion, maybe i suggest you look for better spots to catch the fish.

      Hello dadaas,

      Well, depends really what kind of opponent are we against. If against some aggressive one then I might even bet the turn for free card for river.

      But as played the river is snap-fold, you will be always there against Ax or maybe even stronger hand like 22/A6.

      Best Regards.
