      not at all. you have to think more in depth.

      he saw me doing 80% c-bets so he just called me on the flop, on the turn I gave up and he bet it. but I knew he has air to I re-raise it, now he's thinking..ok he knows that I have the air but he has air also, he checked turn! so I re-raise gain!

      and on the river I was representing the K (he was sure I didnt have it, what why I bet it) and he shives it..

      this hand is just a masterpiece, masterpiece

      I disagree, I havn't ever seen people check-minraise turn as bluff after cbetting flop on such boards, if you suspect him floating the you just 2nd barrel or sometimes c/r big. Believe me or not, I'd always fold there, you just got absolute fish opponent, which is of course juicy :D

      Omg, I hope you are kidding about status :-) Ok sure, I just didn't like the line, but if it works for you maybe I should try that too.

      haha lol @ status comment. it always depends on what your opponent is like. in this case that line made him click . A lot of ppl bet this flop with a set to disguise their hand and since you cbet a lot of course you will cbet this board and a good opponent will call or even raise you if he has a read on you cbetting too much. But afterwards he would expect you to 2nd barrell or if you check raise him to check raise him big and not minraise assuming he hasn't seen you do that a lot. he played wrong as he tried to bluff you without any clues and invested so much in that hand which wasn't even a semi bluff.

      if you have air and you know he has air you would 2nd barrell.. check raising him is more expensive for you so more often it's not a bluff.

      anw just my thoughts. congrats for the hand

      p.s: your thinking works better for tournament play when every hand counts more
