      River: ($8.60) 4 :diamond: (2 players)
      CO bets $48.85, Hero calls $14.38 all in

      Villain is 25/19 on 1.1k hands, however in this session he is playing a lot looser because the guy currently on BB is 59/46 and as you can see, is super deepstacked.

      I believe I was tilted in this session through having many hands with villains donkoverbetshoving rivers when possible draws completed. I think this call I made is minitilt i.e. me becoming exasperated at how the session is going and timebank/sigh-calling as a bad adaption to what had been happening so far.

      To try and analyse this hand properly I have to ask myself: "What range can I call the riverjam with?"

      It's pretty obvious that you have at least trip Aces. I think this is a really bad spot to bluff when the other guy has something high in absolute hand strength.

      Since this is a bad bluffing spot, we can only guess that this guy has some full houses trying to go for maximum value vs your trips. To the indisciplined micro-stakes player who gets carried away with absolute hand strength, it's going to be pretty tough to find a fold so I actually like villain's play.

      You ask what would I call here? I probably 3bet AQ and AK, so the bottom of my calling range here is a full house.
