      Villain is 17/13/2/24.

      $0.25/$0.5 No Limit Holdem
      5 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Hero (UTG) ($83.18)
      CO ($30.35)
      BTN ($66.67)
      SB ($49.50)
      BB ($74.94)

      Pre-flop: ($0.75, 5 players) Hero is UTG 6:heart: 6:diamond:
      Hero raises to $2, 1 fold, BTN calls $2, 1 fold, BB calls $1.50

      Flop: 2:spade: 4:diamond: T:heart: ($6.25, 3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $5, BTN calls $5, BB folds

      Turn: A:spade: ($16.25, 2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: 8:diamond: ($16.25, 2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $13, Hero wants to call

      Why do I always want to call in this spots? :) This is ridiculous and is a clear fold, true?

      I just can't see hands he check turn but pots river, looks sooo bluffy for me.

      Thank you in advance for your comments!

      Easy fold on river, you just don't believe him that he hit on turn or flop that might change with time and experience. :P

      well, its not an easy fold, the line looks in my opinion very bluffy


      you dont beat much with 66

      I can believe him the hand because hes tight player, if he was on rage and bluffed you than NH, you just have to be rght too often to justify a call

      or he has 8's :-)

      Actually he could be easily calling with 53s pf, and play 'tricky' on the turn. And he wanted to look sooo bluffy for you, or wanted you to bluff or raise if he expected you to have an ace and play tricky.

      This happened on 04/19

      UTG2 = ($93.00) 
      MP1 = ($58.35) 
      MP2 = ($165.75) 
      MP3 = ($40.90) 
      CO = ($54.10) 
      BU = ($57.55) 
      SB(Hero) = ($46.00) 
      BB = ($33.15) 
      UTG1 = ($28.15) 

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 3:heart: , 5:heart:
      UTG1 calls $0.50, 4 folds, CO raises to $1, BU folds, Hero calls $0.75, BB calls $0.50, UTG1 calls $0.50. 

      Flop: ($4.00) 8:spade: , 2:diamond: , 4:heart: (4 players) 
      Hero checks, BB bets $2.00, UTG1 folds, CO folds, Hero calls $2.00. 

      Turn: ($8.00) A:diamond: (2 players) 
      Hero checks, BB checks. 

      River: ($8.00) 7:heart: (2 players) 
      Hero bets $3.00, BB calls $3.00. 

      Final Pot: $14.00. 
      Results follow: 

      Hero shows a straight, five high (3 5) 
      BB shows a pair of tens (T:club: T:spade:

      Hero wins with a straight, five high (3:heart: 5:heart: ). 

      I checked on the turn because I didn't wan't to scare if he didn't have an ace, and wanted him to call a bet on the river, and if he had one, and cbetted on the flop with ace-high he would have raised himself.
