I honestly kept calling because I figured he was bluffing, however at the turn I was looking at what I had and wanted to see if I could pull it off! Btw I am up 21 bucks this week just playing 1c2c before anyone starts to ridicule my donk play!

Xgcsnippy, great outcome. I note you say that you thought he was bluffing. I was just wondering what hand you put him on, particularly given his position on the table and everyone had folded to him. I also wondered what thought you gave to pot odds in determining the way you made you calls given you had two,pair and a flush/straight draw potential.

Nice one always nice to hit those two outers on the river. I think it is a sign to go and buy a lotto poker ticket and try for the straight flush. I am in favour that best hand pre flop should always win and it did Thumbs Up

Those 4's (or any other pocket rocket) aren't too bad on a full ring table IMO when only three people will see the flop...

Nice hand you got there. The bets werent big, so i dont think it was a donk play.
It would have been if he was all in, in turn with you calling Smile

the fact that you got up in a week that much doesnt mean anything you can go down the same
amount in less than a day Smile
But you are an experienced player able to prevent this i think.

Good luck with your future grinding Thumbs Up

I bet he was furious.

I don't think your play is too bad, though it is bad. I also wouldn't play 4s pre-flop. You're way out of position with the bb still to act and there aren't many flops that look good for you. I'm curious as to whether you would still have called an all-in if the river was a blank such as 9c. There's no way you can put him on anything since you check-called all the way, you wouldn't imagine that a card like 9 would make a difference. Then again, if he raised pre-flop, any card could give him the over-pair, so even if he was bluffing, could you afford to keep calling and just hope that he doesn't bluff/hit the river?

In your defence, the c-bets were small and raising would have probably got you out of the hand. If the guy had previous for poor bluffing and being aggressive with high cards, then you could have maximised your profit by playing this way. There's no way you can put him on trips let alone a full house from his pre-flop play. And tbh I can't be bothered to work out if your implied odds for AK, JJ, or A7 were in your favour. Still, your play did seem risky and could have just as easily lost you your whole stack rather than doubling it.

Nice hand Thumbs Up
