      He was multitabling and looking reggish.

      I ended up calling because I was eliminating hand after hand from his value range because this line doesn't make sense to me. I think this is a bad thought process and I should prolly fold here since he is not bluffing here, not with those stats (even thought they're prolly a little off of his real ones due to the sample), and it's an even stupid line for bluffing than it is for value.

      After you see what he had can you give me a hint/ an idea on his thought process? I don't understand it at all atm.

      PS: I eliminated from his range AA-TT since I think that he is either folding them on the turn or barreling (either with a :club: or because he is afraid of one) and pretty much expecting the same from AK (should barrel for value + protection), right?

      Hi,

      I would likely fold river, since I don´t see players bluffing there basically never.
      He can have everything starting with slowplayed flush and as you saw some strange Kx hands

      his thought process:
      - I dot want to c/rai since I only get called by better hands and at the same time I don´t want to b/f, so I would c/c for pot control, since river is complete blank I would go my valuebet.

      best regards,
