      Opponent was pretty loose and showed a lot of bluffs, but I think I made a mistake here. Because only what I can beat here was QQ KK and that would be pure bluff catcher, what do you think?

      SORRY WRONG PLACE! Dont know how to move it out of here

      I'm gonna move the thread to the NL Forum but i give my opinion though :P

      If you already have got the read that your opponent is loose and is likely to bluff a lot, it is a mustcall on the river. you probably blame yourself for the call but you have trips with a good kicker. a flushdraw is possible on the river and his river bet is supposed to be quite strong. he probably had you beat with AQ or AK or with a set but couldn't he also try to get you off the hand with just QJ KJ KQ or hands like that?

      some guys doing crazy things, don't give an unknown player too much credit.
