      No real reads on villian - and only 13 hands. He had open limped like 3/4 hands so he probably wasn't the greatest player. I check turn to induce a bluff - and I probably should have bet on the river. But even if I bet what would I do if he shoved?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Hi,


      What a funny yet nasty hand. I'd just make a small turn raise with a weird timing to hopefully continue to piss him off enough that he can do something stupid, since when he bets so small i'm not really confident he'll give us more money on the river if we just call and check the river to him.

      As played we put ourselves into a horrible river spot. He could be completely bluffing, he could still have some Qx hands (some we beat some we don't), or he could have a boat. 88 makes the more sense actually, followed by a complete bluff and then some Qx hands. Really depends on whether you've seen him be aggressive or not before, i'd lean towards folding since bluff-catching with horrible odds is never fun.


      Hope it helps.
