Never had any reads on this player. I had a feeling he may have a bigger flush so i just flat call. Should i be re-raising in this spot ?

Hi m.bis,

I would raise his river donk bet. It looks a lot like a blocking bet or some sort of weird value bet with Qx or a rivered 2 pair, not wanting you to check down the river. Not sure how often he'll be strong enough to pay a raise, that's the only real question imo... will he call often enough with worse hands. I think the answer is yes, with his Qx and 2 pairs, enough to compensate for the times we run into a better flush. It's a weird line for a better flush though, not raising the turn then donking the river? Seems more like what I mentioned above, or a bluff.

Note that he bluffs with total air on river.
Colour code him as a station, because 87 shouldn't even see a flop, let alone call 2 streets OOP with no pair or draw.

I think this should be a raise/fold.

Villain's bet looks very much like a blocking bet. I would expect a typical micro player to bet much bigger with the A-high flush, maybe even just shove in some cases.

Thanks for info

Looking back at it I should be 're raising. Wouldn't it be cool if you could click the replay button and watch the hand up to the river and see how the hands played so far. Playing 6+ tables can be a pain when trying to think back what happened. If I could have done that in this hand I would defo reraise.

If you can't keep track of what's happened in the hand, you're playing too many tables IMO.

I agree 100% mabe playing 4 zoom tables is like playing 12 regular.
