      This new guy sits at my table and I decide to get to know him alittle bit :P
      Idk if this is readable at all I used the flopturnriver converter thingy..
      note: I started with 30$ and ended up with over 150$ so needless to say I was destroying the table.

      But if it is, am I the fish or the genius? xD
      personally I think I'm the fish :P but it worked.

      Im no expert on NL but from the way it played I would have put him on KQ maybe KJ but doubtful, but after seeing he folds the river on such a safe board (No flushes or obvious straights) It would make sense for him to have a pair like TT, 99, or even mebe lower 7's or 6's and didn't like the chunky river bet.

      In most situations like this I would have check folded the turn as you have no draws and if he does have a K you are way behind in the hand.

      I agree guys, but I have more factors to consider. He was hesitating alot and stuff, it's been some time since I played the hand so I don't remember every detail. But my gut just told me he was playing a funky hand. It was like when you know people milks the clock to make it look like they're thinking in a big hand, but all they're doing is trying to bluff. idk if it's only me who notices these kind of things. But anyway it worked out well.. I agree that when I look at the text version it looks so horrible. :P
