      a hand vs a pretty insane guy.
      no volume yet but had reads: saw him call off his whole stack preflop with QTs. playing 68/36/2. tbh, he appeared tilted and determined to shove his rage away.

      i was pretty confident that he can c/r or stack off with TP, FD's +

      some conclusions:
      he raises sooo big but i cannot fold to his flop raise. i had good reads that he clearly overvalues pretty hands and willing to go broke super light.
      this leaves me with 2 options: call or reraise
      i wondered if i should simply call - and the biggest reason for this is that we are deep. i was tanking about this for quite a while.
      - any Jx is waay behind me. he will stack off with this.
      - any flush draw is still behind. he will stack off with this.
      - 2pair (i didnt think was likely at all, given the board)
      - trips he stacks off obviously.

      the disadvantage of calling here is that if his draw doesn't get there, then we lose the opportunity to get his whole stack. and it seemed smart to get the money in, while we were ahead. what would i do with a heart on turn or river? fold when he barrels? that is the difficulty with aggro erratic players. he is clearly happy with his hand and i finally decided i was happy with mine against his range.

      Hero shows K:spade: K:diamond:
      (Pre 84%, Flop 49.3%, Turn 0.0%)

      BB wins $30.02

      the most surprising thing of all though is noting down the equities and how close it actually was on the flop.
      overall, i think against this type of player, getting it in on a flip isn't too bad.
      against his range, i believe i am doing even better than just flipping.
      about playing deep, pls feel free to comment. would you take such high variance moves?


      doh i think coaching is over :D
      sorry just saw the thread and i was thinking about this hand at the precise moment.

      On the flop i go for check/raise because flop is so dry and wanted that he hits something, that could call my raises turn, river but this goes bad.

      Dont get beat up about this, I think on such a dry board, and playing at 2nl the people are nuts and will call with worse so i think its correct.

      However raising it all in is inccorect you should raise a little more
