      Final Pot: $6.55.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of fives(A K).
      MP2 shows a pair of fives(K Q).

      Hero wins with a pair of fives(A K).

      Preflop I may even made it 6BB.

      On the flop I did not cbet I only had 27 hands on villian but he had called 2/2 flop cbets. On the other hand he had bet-in-position after miss cbet of 2/2 also.
      I called his relatively small bet to re-evaluate the turn.

      On the turn he repeats his small bet. At that stage I thought he had a weak 1 pair hand and that a c/r representing JJ would make him fold. I could not understand him flat calling the c/r and decided to give up on the hand.

      On the river I check with the intention to fold but then he again made the strange small bet. I decided to call simply because I could not put him on a hand and wanted to see his cards. Well what a surprise.

      Hello mineriva,

      Add to full stack if playing BSS.

      Preflop: While vs 2 limpers and being OOP I would raise it even bigger ~$0,60 at least.
      Postflop: Don't like your play at all. Rather CB yourself than pick such a play and turn your hand into bluff-catcher or into bluff.

      Best Regards.

      I know it was played funky but the showdown was just funny!

      About the cbet on that board I put villian range as follows:

      +- 20% Top pair
      +- 15% pocket pair above 5 and below J
      +- 3% set

      So I believe my cbet will work only 60% if he calls 2nd pair + but this villian has called 2/2 so I thought a cbet was -ev.

      I will be interested to hear your thoughts on the cbet.

      You have no sample, you didn't write anything how the opponent plays, just few times that he called your CB.

      Neither you can't calculate or assume the range which did hit such a board this way. If you don't even know what's his VPIP is then how can you assume that he hits 20% the range? I could say that he plays maybe like 50% of the hands then the numbers could be whole different and most part of his range didn't hit.

      Whatever the showdown was, you will definitely lose a lot money with it.
