*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to pipi486 [9h Ts] (decent hand on the button, something I like to steal the blinds with)
rockshoxbh: folds
bogie8118: folds
zerzinho: folds
Lombardini: folds
DHUSTLER15: folds
pipi486: raises 6000 to 10000 (2.5 BB raise, sometimes i raise 3xBB... dont really wanan see a flop and I almost always have to let it go against a re-raise)
nutty_hamish: folds
Miidas969: calls 6000 (big blind is a loose and aggressive player, my read is that he probably called with a medium hand, enticed by the pot odds. Yet his hand wasnt strong enough for a re-raise. Feels like 22-88,A2-A7,K9-KJ,QT,JT~ meaning a very very wide range)
*** FLOP *** [9c Ah Ad]  (pretty dry flop, a decent pair for me )
Miidas969: checks (checks to raiser, note we both have big stacks)
pipi486: bets 13000 (half pot c-bet, small enough to take the pot if he doesnt have a pair. not too much to lose if his A/x)
Miidas969: raises 15000 to 28000 (small check-raise, if done by a TAG this shows a lot of strength. Since he is a LAG, his range can be wide... including some bluffs. Usually this is a way ahead of way behind flop... I am beaten by Ax and if he hit the 9, he is probably a better kicker like Q9, K9)
pipi486: calls 15000 ( I call since the odds are good, will fold to any future bet)
*** TURN *** [9c Ah Ad] [Jc]
Miidas969: checks (he figures me to be like A/x and keeps it small?)
pipi486: checks
*** RIVER *** [9c Ah Ad Jc] [2c]
Miidas969: checks (blank river card, check check down)
pipi486: checks
*** SHOW DOWN ***
Miidas969: shows [Kd Qh] (a pair of Aces)
pipi486: shows [9h Ts] (two pair, Aces and Nines) (wonder why I won this pot... didnt think i made a good call, but I just got lucky and caught a bluff?)
pipi486 collected 82000 from pot
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 82000 | Rake 0
