4th hand of the tournament. Villian had played them all. Turned out to be a major fish but only suspected at the time of the hand.

Should i have folded his river click back? or was it a correct call?

Hi Kiwi,

Interesting spot.

Nice flop and I like the continuation bet rather than a slow play since we can still get called by weaker Aces and don't want to see a flush card.

Turn card is the flush card. I think a bet here is still good since we can get called by weaker Aces still and some other hands like QK, QJ, QT with a spade.

After opponents calls on the turn I think we are getting in dangerous teritory. Alot of weak Aces aren't calling a 3rd barrel. Of those that will A7 & A9 beat us.
I think here I would prefer to check and call a reasonable bet something just over half pot maybe since we keep he's weaker aces in and give him a chance to bluff.
If I lead out here I think I fold to any reraise.

A min reraise is pretty sick since we are getting crazy odds on a call. But I can't see anything he does this with that we beat. He's been passive all hand then a tiny reraise on the river of little significant. Stinks of a flush or A7 to me. Only thing we beat is a bluff and I just don't see it often enough.

Good luck

Quad Bracelet Winner
