      Preflop - isolating limper
      Flop - standard I guess
      Turn - here I should have suspected pocket pair
      River - major mistake here. So many hands from his range has me beaten. 55, 66, 99, KTd and I dont think he could have something else with such a line (ch/c, ch/c, shove). I was on tilt, so I didnt think too much back then. :/

      Hi,


      I'm fine with your play. I won't give him 66 ever he can't get the river with that, KT/55/99 could (should!) have raised on earlier streets, and he can still play busted diamonds or sometimes Qx with diamonds like that. We can't fold without reads on the river getting those odds in my opinion. NH.


      Hope it helps.
