      Hi all

      This guy is a freaking luckbox, sitting at a NL5 table with $40.

      His VPIP is 90, PFR is 30, over 30 hands.

      Don't you just hate when this happens? A massive fish gets lucky time after time with suckouts. 3 times in a row I saw him going all in preflop with absolute trash and win.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2(Hero):
      $5.00
      MP3:
      $5.79
      CO:
      $4.95
      BU:
      $4.93
      SB:
      $37.56
      BB:
      $5.00
      UTG2:
      $5.86
      MP1:
      $3.00


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A, A.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 3 folds, SB calls $0.18, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.45) 3, 7, K (2 players)
      SB bets $0.45, Hero calls $0.45.

      So anyway I decided not to give him any credit and just call. This was a mistake I think. I should have put him all in right here.

      Turn: ($1.35) 2 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.35, Hero calls $1.35.

      River: ($4.05) T (2 players)
      SB bets $4.05, Hero calls $3.00.

      Should I have called the river bet?

      Final Pot: $11.1.

      Hi,


      Hard to say without any idea of his postflop aggression. I'd just get it all-in on the flop as a default, especially if you think he can play a draw like that, but if you think he mostly has airballs when he donks out like that then calling him down is fine.

      Doubling up has tremendous EV in itself considering we can play deep against a complete idiot afterward, there is no way i'm not going broke without a solid read on his line.


      Hope it helps.

      Unfortunately for me he had K2.
