      History is I raised first-in from SB vs BB against the same player already 2 times before (with legit hands though), so I put him on a looser range. I know my play is quite unorthodox, but on paired boards, opponents really love to move on this limit on PartyPoker, especially with the history I just mentioned. That's why I decided to play this situation as way ahead / way behind spot right from the flop and check/call all three streets.

      On the flop, I put him on anything from complete air over any pocket pair to a J or a T - I see myself ahead a lot more often than behind. On the turn, his range is quite polarized between a J/T and air as I think he would check anything else to see a cheap showdown. As he bets on the river again, it's either a T or air, as he would check a J behind imo. Both turn and river were blanks, so I still think I'm ahead more often than behind and have to call.

      Is this too sick? ;)
