In the span of 5 minutes on 2 different tables, this happens:

This first one, after the river, I miss click the all in and bet $0.26 instead of $0.27 and he folds after betting $8.12. WHY?
I guess he missed his straight and didn't want to show

The second one, the player bets $5 after the river and I go all in with $5.42 and he folds. WHY?
I guess he didn't want to show

That was great for me, great start to the month of February, but I still wanted to know, so I could write it in my players notes

Any thoughts on what they had??

Hey Trap!

If I were a gambling man... I think the first hand was a total airball bluff with garbage that they didn't want to show.
Like not wanting to show losing a 27o hand in the tank, when it costs the extra prop bet if you show it as a loser.

The second one, no telling. Could be a 3, could be a 10, could be 2 broadways.

Still - you have to love the fishies. Ran into one too today - Guy 5-bet me preflop for1/3 his stack, I 6-bet allin and he calls with K7 off. Only time on 5 days I got value out of pocket aces
