      this ones a pretty sick cooler, but the villain just played this hand so bad when he was clearly beat on the river, but he also couldve won it outright on the turn with a bigger raise:



      PokerStars - $0.05 NL ZOOM - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3
      i call preflop, standard stuff..trying to setmine
      BTN: $2.66
      SB: $2.18
      BB: $10.85
      UTG: $10.08
      UTG+1: $7.32
      MP: $4.07
      MP+1: $4.99
      LP: $6.53
      Hero (CO): $5.14

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has 5:spade: 5:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, MP+1 raises to $0.20, fold, Hero calls $0.20, fold, fold, fold
      I call the flop with plans of betting the turn if checked to. People have tendencies to bet the flop and c/f the turn a lot on this limit. myself included.

      Flop: ($0.47, 2 players) 7:club: A:spade: 4:diamond:
      MP+1 bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20

      Turn: ($0.87, 2 players) 6:spade:
      MP+1 checks, Hero bets $0.40, MP+1 raises to $0.80, Hero calls $0.40
      The plan went array when he raises me on this turn, but its just giving me even better odds to hit the straight card. He also indicates BIG strength, so im sure i could even get paid off on the river if i do hit..but thats not the main reason why the call is so good on the turn.
      River: ($2.47, 2 players) 8:club:
      MP+1 bets $1.40, Hero raises to $3.94 and is all-in, MP+1 calls $2.39 and is all-in
      .the river is just a bad card for him. I cant put him on 95 or T9..just not in a million years...so i shove for value to get it from hands like A-x 2 pairs, or sets.:

      Hero shows 5:spade: 5:heart: (Straight, Eight High) (Pre 19%, Flop 5%, Turn 18%)
      MP+1 shows A:heart: A:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Aces) (Pre 81%, Flop 95%, Turn 82%)
      Hero wins $9.63

      Hello ilovemagic,

      Flop: Well, the problem on the flop is still that he has a lot of Ax hands in his range and his range hardly hits here. I am not even sure if I would recommend you floating but rather just playing fit/fold on Axx. :)

      As played
      Turn: Do you think you can ever make any better hands to fold? I would rather Check behind here while even having showdown value and SD.

      As played
      River: Not much to comment.

      Best Regards.

      Means if you don't hit then you just fold the hand -> fit = if you hit then continue.
