      BB: $44 (88 bb)
      UTG+2: $45.97 (91.9 bb)
      MP1: $63.80 (127.6 bb)
      MP2: $76.92 (153.8 bb)
      MP3: $79.57 (159.1 bb)
      CO: $52.69 (105.4 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $60.07 (120.1 bb)
      SB: $46.22 (92.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A 5
      5 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, SB folds, BB calls $0.75

      Flop: ($2.75) 5 8 5 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2, BB calls $2

      Turn: ($6.75) J (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $5, BB calls $5

      River: ($16.75) K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $9, BB raises to $35.75 and is all-in, Hero !?!?!?!?!?!?!?

      Villain is a station VPIP 36/PFR 18/3bet 1.9/AF 1.8/call cbet flop 40/call cbet turn 20.

      I cbet because these guys like to bluff a lot on paired boards, plus a check would look suspicious, plus he may call me with whatever given his style, plus I may be lucky and he has a 5. Same thought process on turn, but now I know he has not decided to bluff as not having me raised yet.

      On the river I bet because I think he is going to call me with any of the overcards that hit, and my hand looks like a total bluff. Actually wanted to bet something close to pot size to look even more like a bluff.

      He insta-ships it on the river after I bet. The only thing that crossed my mind was WTFFFF????? I mean what can he have here for God sake?

      Hello circoflax,

      There is no way we are ever planning to Check the flop. I would most of the time just CB the flop and build up the pot.

      But otherwise as played it's kind of ugly on the river as the FD even completes. :( He also seems to be so passive and for that given reason I might even be towards Bet/Fold. His range still consist of something like 8:dX + of course some SD with backdoor FD.

      But that's true that I am not sure if I get away during the game here vs such a fish. :D And of course we can't discard 88.

      Best Regards.
