Hi spike8998,

I don't know if you want analysis, or just wanted to post the smack down you laid on here

I am interested on how you got your read.

Generally when a player looks to steal a pot they do so preflop.

A limp preflop followed by a 3 barrel bluff with complete air I think is a fairly rare thing. And absolutely horrible I think from your opponent vs the chip leader on the bubble. But calling flop and turn with bottom pair I don't think is winning much money long term either. If the opponent has been playing alot of mid pairs like this then you are behind until the river, and could still be behind sets.

Nice win.
Andy

Limp call. Still just looks like a loose passive player to me.
