      you dont see any pairing, flush or straight draws so yes i would go for maximum value here too, unlucky about the result.

      From fifth street I'm starting to check/call to the end. It is very unprovable to have 6 (45) for a SD and when he is not afraid from the A he is probably ahead of AA and the only real card that he can hold are (66) 6 or (KK) 6 to play like this.
      If he thus have set of sixes he is way behind (one out 6 and and six outs for full house)
      So let him bet and get value from sixes and control the pot if he have KK.

      Best regards,

      So it is time to ask the question: What hand he may have to cap on every street that we beat?

      Start calling on 6th street would save about $20 and change the session from lost to gain.

      Hm... next time ;)

      I agree that if you know this player to be half decent then he can only really have trip 6's or kings but have you ever played stud hi on the ipoker network? If you do you'll see why I think capping is best against an unknown oppenent.

      After he caps every street, especially the fifth and sixth, I would be sure he has a set or wired up. Do note that he also reraised the 3rd when he got reraised by a Q, which means he either has a Q pair beat or he has a set of sixes.

      Eitherway, after fifth you seriously need to consider how live your FH draw really is, and then act accordingly. If your outs are more or less dead, I'd play check call. If they are not, I might continue capping against a player I have no reads of, and hope he doesn't have a set of kings.

      There is one important observation that I have learned: not even a bad player will cap every street with just a two pair.
