My thoughts exactly. That and the only hand I could really beat was a busted Dia draw and it made no sense for him to have a dia draw. As I said he is very tight preflop and I had the K and Q of dia's. As it turned out he did, and I kid you not, show AKs. Thats the first time i've ever been at a table and seen one come up. He won the hand but I won the battle.
I semi jokingly typed while I was contemplating my decision: Royal? And everyone at the table lol'd. I responded he either has a royal or a straight to the ace. I folded and he showed. I sat at that table for another 3 hours and most were very weary when in hands with me after the flop.
I take no credit for this. It was not so much a skill of mine as it was a VERY large leak in his game. So for those of you that dont do it already, remember what ppl raise with preflop when you get the chance to see them showdown. I dont have a ton of talent but attentiveness has served me well. Information is my lifeblood.
