      Hi there!

      I think that hand was a destined all in no matter what.

      Thing is: How often on average do you feel he is calling your huge overbet there?

      Obviously he will with trip 4s but can you make his pay with top pair midkicker for example?

      Also do we have any reads on him? Agg factors/ 3bets?

      Overall very good suckout sir :)

      Hi mate :)

      I didn't even look at the board properly. On the river the nuts arrived. Kinda sad, because the maximum I was gonna win with my nuts was 13 cents.

      I knew, that CO is fish, so I did the most stupid thing I could imagine, just for fun, or to make him tilt a bit more, if I'm lucky. Imagine my surprise, when the fish swallowed the bite.

      I mean, honestly :D with 13 cent pot? I was pretty sure that this 3 didn't help the whole lot to anyone, and they won't even call 1/2 pot bet.

      Well, now I know that it might work.

      You know, sometimes you can feel this special moment at the table. Like the other day I got aces from EP, and because I play only two tables I was perfectly aware of the mental state of all the fish in the pool and their bad beats, and I just knew it was a perfect spot. Without thinking too much, I just open-shoved 100 bb from UTG, and what do you think? :) I got called by some crappy pocket pair.

      Shame I changed that database, it would match this thread perfectly :)

      So am I the only one who saves hilarious hands like this one? You guys are boring :f_zZz:

      Haha German! I like this funny database idea! :f_biggrin:


      Well like for this player now it would be good (if you ever track him again) to make a note on him that he limps calls with any two suited cards preflop!

      Thats a good think piece of info imo.

      Peace!
