      CO showed 5 5 and won $40.62 ($19.62 net)

      Anon table.

      CO is a huge fish (50+ vpip). He had high foldtoCbet, and low wtsd (~ 70/22 as I remember), but he was quite aggro postflop. I didnt had a clear betsizing tell on him, saw halfpot bluffbets, halfpot/potsize vbets as well, so seemed quite random.
      Showdown is OMFG, but is it a good spot to induce him? He couldnt have much to call me with on this board, plus he probably wont call me down light with something like Ace high, but he could turn a lot of hands into bluff.
      On the river I wasnt happy, but since the plan was to make him bluff, I didnt see how I could fold without a clear read, which I didnt have...

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Well, you say that he had a high fold to CB but what made you think that he is willing to bluff more than Calling you? :) I'd rather really willing to Bet myself and get value from his hands rather than Check/Call 3 streets as you did and quite obviously face a nutted hand on the river. :)

      So we actually should have done Check/Fold on the river. :P

      Best Regards.
