      This guy could not fold a hand pre-flop, was calling down all sorts of rubbish. Several times he had raised flop, turn, river or all three streets with bottom and middle pair, or just two random cards!

      So, I feel I'm only worried about a king, but I want to get value from all his middle and bottom pair hands. I ruled out a Kx hand when he donked the flop, as he had previously slowplayed these "monster" hands. Turn looked safe, I called to feign weekness knowing he would bet big on river with his bottom or middle pair.

      Nice card on the river, or so I think, and the rest is history.

      Is my play here against this guy generally ok?

      Based on your reads you did pretty much anything you can.

      Especially since you can rule out him having a K in this spot, the board is completely draw free (some strange OESD was possible but turn wiped it away), so you're ahead of him almost always.

      Only thing I MIGHT have done different is raise that turn, but again with the strong reads you had you got all the money in with the cards you wanted, I see nothing wrong ^^

      In your place I'd be like: nice hand, looking forward to my next hands against you, welcome to my buddy list :s_love:

      It's fine, NH. River is a tad scary since his betting pattern changed, but he could still be randomly bluffing so whatever.

      Make a note on the hand since it shows blatant bet sizing tells, you'll crush him in the future.

      Hope it helps.
