      i wanted to fold river, but i hated this player so much, because he was such a fish and i wished to pwn him. Thoughts?

      This is a huge mistake. You should never be influenced by your emotions when playing poker. It will always be a downfall in the long run. Still I would have liked getting it all in on the turn. The cards dont change so you would have still lost but i'm sure he would have called you with top pair and an OESD.

      Hi,


      The preflop 4-bet is too small considering you're playing with 160bb effective stacks, i'd make it closer to 3x his raise. Probably $2.2 or so. Then c-bet any flop and go broke on all but the ugliest turns, barring further reads on villain.

      As played you really don't beat anything on the river except maybe KK, so even tho you're getting good odds on a call it's probably a fold.


      Hope it helps.
