      BB showed 6 6 and won $45.84 ($21.84 net)

      Villain was pretty much unknown 31/15 after 14 hands

      On the river I thought that he either has 2p+ that he played like this : AK, 68s, K6s; set, rivered Ace or a busted draw or a dumb bluff all the way. After writing down all the value combos it looks like he can still have a decent amount of value hands. Needing 30%+ equity what is your play here?

      Hi Demarcohsp.

      I don't mind your call at all. He is representing nut flush draw, some AX 2pair hands (i don't think he has AK often), and busted draws.

      While I don't expect to be ahead that often, I think we may be good 30% of the time which is enough to call. The thing is that I don't give him credit for KX after the River Ace so I think he reps way more bluffs than real hands.

      This is also a pretty silly line to use as a set and I won't give people credit for it until they prove otherwise.
