rebuy is still on

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

gave me a free card

hit TP md kicker i donk bet 75% against a gambler opp who loves to rebuy he called

turn 75% again he called

river i let him bluff me it worked i will definitely call him no matter what

ship it

lesson - don't give the BB a free ride it might cost your stacks with weak holding and you don't want that you just fold rather than limping or better yet if you want to play just raise it, please

Looks very well-played Marvin. Nice one.

And the other guy was fine until the river bet. (Float flop since this doesn't hit your BB check range very hard plus a gutshot. Call turn when he picks up a pair and still has the draw). While he may very well have the best hand on the river, what worse hand is going to double barrel and call a bet on the river? Is he really turning KT into a bluff, trying to get you off KJ or a weak ace?

Hi Martin,

Nicely played, players do tend to gamble during the rebuy period for sure. I agree with Jared I can't imagine what this opponent was thinking betting the river, he has showdown value vs Qx but you are never calling a bet with Qx (I don't think).

The one thing I might do in a spot like this is check the turn since it seems hard to get called by many worse hands, but your read was obviously good because he did.
