Had no real read on these two players other than they were both pretty loose and so could have had almost anything.. Part of me thinks I should have been more aggressive on the turn, although dunno if it would have made any difference. I was slightly scared of the straight, but considering the size of the pot thought it was worth calling.



Aletky mucked A4s by the way

Pre its allright to just call, you want whole table to call with ya.

OTF you simply jam "bet/raise" button and never let it go unless very bad things happen. Like that river, where you should just call, there is no value in betting, but folding is also out of the question

This is basically .02/.02 FLHE in a nutshell. They call with almost anything pre-flop and if they hit any piece then they will call all the way to the river,come Hell or highwater.

I like your line pre here,just call and use pot control (if you can) and go for the set mine. I would have maxed the raises post flop myself,but that's mainly for value. You're pretty much never getting a player like foxeylady here to fold on the gutshot draw until they know they can't get there. Turn,again I'm leaning on the raise button for value.

When a scare card like that rivers and a player changes their gears as foxeylady did here (going from a pure calling station line to betting out all the way through after the 4 hit) then unless you have a specific read on them being willing to bluff,or semi-bluff the river with something that has weak showdown value but some at least,then I would tend to give them credit for the hand and just save some chips there. Hard to do I know but not spewing chips on the river when they make it this obvious can be a big factor in just how successful your sessions are. In this case without that specific read foxey's cards may as well be face up.
