      Same table, same maniac as in previous thread. He did not bet on flop, so I figured that he is bluffing, so I called. Then I got scared and decided to leave as it is in case I am wrong. The board was very scary after all :P

      I don't think I am going to like what you will say, but still... please evaluate :P

      seems like a turn bluffbet by villain when u checked behind flop, but this is only apparent when he checked the river.
      With no knowledge of the river, why did u call the turn psb? u are behind K pair and flush.
      I would bet flop to maintain initiative and balance my line, because I'm nearly always cbetting A-hi K-hi boards.

      Hi,

      preflop: Fine.
      flop: Check behind is fine, because you have showdown value, can control the pot, induce some bluffs AND you don't want to be check/raised.
      turn: Snapcall with your reads about villain.
      river: Snapcall if he bets no matter which amout to this blank.
      If he checks, then he has air quite often. Maybe could can make a thin value bet like 7-8$ against 88-JJ. But keep in mind, that you then have to fold to a shove.
      => nh!

      What did he have?

      Best regards,
      Anin

      What is "snapcall" ?

      That's the thing - at the moment of his bet on turn I was almost sure that he has nothing, because he would have shown some aggression even with A7 or A6. But after that I lost my confidence and started to have doubts, so I decided to check/call to keep pot lower in case of a disaster/trap. I was begging for him not to push AI on river, because I would probably call, just to watch him taking my money with KK...

      snapcall is insta call without really thinking too much
      I would played flop and turn the same way, but would bet river 5$ and would call his shove. Mostly he doesn´t have anything and that small bet induces bluffraises from time to time, so you really have to b/c river if you bet
