Here is my analysis of this hand:
We are 3handed in 6max game which means that we are on bubble there. Chip leader is sit out so it means that we are fighting for money and possible for free first place. So guy started playing really aggro trying to be bully and trying to get me scared so he can take as much free money he can. I know what he wants because I want same thing Big Smile
So, I reraise him small to allow him to call me with bunch of weak hands. At that point im trying to make big pot and take him as much chips as I can since I now that I will have hard time with him if we stay close with chips. He calls as I suspected and Im putting him on very wide range of hands. I bet small on flop wanting to induce reraise from bluffs, flush draws, any douce and small pocket pairs. Also want to get call by overs. I get called so im pretty sure he does not have 2, pocket pair or flush draw since given how aggro he was I expect him to reraise those. I thought he would lot of times reraise 7 there because I 3bet preflop so he may put me on pocket pair and try to get it in. Turn is bad A so I check for pot control and to give him opportunity to bluff if he floated flop. He bets and I call. River is another ace. I check and he bets. So, if he have flush he would just check. If he have 7 he would probably bet that way but as I sad Im not putting him on 7, first because he called flop and 2nd there is not that much 7s in his range preflop. And finally if he have A he would definitely shove that river since he had pot bet left. Doubt he would miss value not to shove and almost bust me. So, I decide he is bluffing and call. Later, he called me donk.

What you think abot this hand?

Total PLAYA that guy....!!! I think you played it well. Just play the hand like you're looking for your card, and let the guy hang himself... Big Smile Thumbs Up

The guy shouldn't have even BEEN in the hand other than the fact he was trying to capitolze on YOUR possible fears first when that pair of 7s came down,...then those aces came down...!

I'm really liking that BOOM thing....makes things much more real than reading through a hand history and trying to visualize it...

I was watching the hand play on Boom, and all along I thought it was pretty standard. The A was definitely a scare card, check for pot control, but the second one kind of threw things back to him having a smaller pocket pair or a bluff. Rock on Acivoj. Thumbs Up

You had a good read of him Thumbs Up

This guy should have folded your 3bet in the first place w 86o.
Unless he had a read on you with your postflop play Smile

The ace was indeed a scary card but also for him.
You could make a cbet there but when he folds you win less chips.
Or he could reraise you and put you all in.

So i like the pot-control option check/call

Well done you!

I often encounter this exact situation. I wait and wait for a good hand to play against these wide-range bullies.

Sometimes I never get one but when I do, I play it pretty much as you did.

The only difference is that when I do it they are pretty much guaranteed to have at least one A.
Aww crap! Aww crap!

Nicely evaluated. Its beautiful to hold KK on a turn like that and vs such an overagg player.
