      worst hand of the night, dont know what i was thinking....
      I was calling cause i thought it would be a split for sure and he is just trying to get me off a hand..
      5 made no sense, if i called on that dry flop, i had to have a K so he could continue on the turn with 5x....
      couldnt put him on a 8 as well.

      and he shows K8... blaaaah

      Hello zumpar,

      Add to full stack if playing BSS. :)

      Preflop: Those hands ain't good for multiway pots. No way you can Call here, either squeeze it or just fold.

      As played
      Postflop: You don't bgeat anything on the river which shoves like that, his range hardly consist of 5x/8x which plays like that.

      Best Regards.

      As an aside – I'm fairly new to these hand evaluations. I know that we're not supposed to post the actual results of the hand so that they can be evaluated purely from a procedural perspective. However, I find that seeing the villain's hand makes it a lot easier (for me anyway) to understand what he was thinking and why he played each street the way he did.

      I've seen more than a few wild a-- crazy bluffs at the NL2 tables, so without seeing the results you have no idea whether you're looking at a reasonable player's actions, or not.

      My vote – post more results.

      BTW - Thanks for the post zumpar. I like to see the hands where the submitter knows he made a mistake, AND LOST THE HAND, but still posts it anyway. :s_thumbsup:

      yeah for sure you invest .30 going to the river. you proceed to call another 1.60 on the river with a tie at best. this is like 6x your initial investment. i wouldnt say your hand wins even 2 out of 6 times in that spot .calling for a tie is illogical for that amount.. bad call.
