1. I flat call from the BB preflop to disguise my pocket pair.
2. I check the flop because these fish will chase their draws anyway.
3. Turn brings me quads, so if I bet they will obv fold. Also I'm a bit scared of the straight flush draw so that's another reason not to bet.
4. River comes and I think I still have the best hand.... I FEEL AT THIS POINT THERE IS NO POINT IN BETTING BECAUSE THEY WILL NOT CALL ME WITH ANYTHING WORSE AND I THINK THE ONLY WAY TO GET VALUE IS TO TRY TO GET THEM TO BLUFF.
OK HOPE THAT EXPLAINS IT.
If anyone has any comments or STILL wants to argue about the hand then I will he happy to discuss it in the chat box.
Also shout out to Houchen who has been crushing the last few days making hero call downs versus those morons. This guys reading ability is up there with Daniel Negradeu.
