      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?

      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by

      MP2 bets $0.55, Hero raises to $1.50, MP2 calls $0.95.

      MP2 bets $1.30, Hero calls $1.30.

      River: ($6.75) 2:club: (2 players)
      MP2 bets $6.42, Hero raises to $6.70 (All-In), MP2 calls $0.28.

      Final Pot: $20.15

      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.
