      I got really curious about the way this was played. When villain totally overbets the river, it doesn't look much like a value bet; many players like to limp reraise from early position with monsters, so I was really clueless about what he had — either 22 or 66, the latter being the most plausible and only hand that could beat me or monsters with which he limped from early position wishing to reraise.

      Any guesses?
