      Hi, not really sure what happend here, was just baffled by it :f_biggrin:

      Preflop:
      Not sure if my hand is valid for a raise against these stacks?
      When he min raises, I thought wtf... called, not sure if it was a correct move..

      Flop:
      With this small bet I thought I could get a better hand for a good price, would have given up the hand to a "real" bet

      Turn:
      Well here I'm sure villain had no idea what was going on, so figured him as a fish given the action before him aswell, thinking he might not even have a better hand.
      Got it in and he called... Is this guy for real? :f_love:

      Results:
      $5.38 pot ($0.26 rake)
      Final Board: 9 9 9 9 6
      BB showed K 7 and lost (-$2.68 net)
      Hero mucked A 8 and won $5.12 ($2.44 net)

      Hi Resilence,

      Preflop: I actually prefer raise folding here with such a weak Ax hand. The open itself I think is fine but I would not make it 3.5 BB, especially given their stacks.

      I'd make it more like 2.5 or 3 BB.

      You have no good flops besides A8x and we can't really flop good draws and a solo Axx board will get us in trouble (we are easily dominated by his 3-bet range). And since he is unknown we really can't put him on a range.

      Postflop: The way the board came out your play is great and of course that was an awesome 3-bet/call from him. He had quads, how can he fold?

      Bogdan would you put your stack in to go broke on that board ?

      We (almost) always split with an Ax and we are just building rake, and if we just calling turn might result in a river bluff.

      I realize he is a fish and actively seeking going broke might might be good, but against reg we would be just building rake.

      Sure, against a reg the raise has no value.

      But he is a fish based on preflop action and stack size.
