      The river is tough, but there is a possible straight, and the paired card may have helped him, so, since I don't have the nuts I can fold the the raise, and on the river a c/c up to pot may have been better.

      When raised on the river at higher limits it may be correct to call, I'm not sure, but at this limit bluffing is low and players are extremely tight, the only hands that beat me are JJ, 88, 5J, 66, 79, and 47. Worse hands are never raising given his stack size that indicates some possible skill.

      Possibly AA or A5 could be played this way or 56 for sure. So only one hand I beat and it's not worth it. Also, his range is weighted towards pairs for stealing very likely.

      Also, pre-flop, even though its just a min-raise I should be folding because it can put me in very tough spots.

      Hi,


      Preflop is somewhat loose but really I don't think you ever go wrong calling with 5:1 odds unless you're calling way too much postflop.

      Postflop I like your line and just so we're clear full house > straights. I just can't bring myself to fold when it's possible he plays stuff like AA that way, straights and worse boats as well.


      Hope it helps.
