Live limit game. A good friend of mine, who's logged in thousands of hands together, is the villain. We email, text, and talk about hands every day... so we both know exactly how we think, which lead to this ridiculous leveling:
Folded to me OTB, I raise JJ. Sb folds, BB calls.
He c/r, I call. He could have absolutely anything, but I don't put him on K. My plan is to raise any turn... until ...
J (KK4) - giving me J's / full!
He leads. When I saw the turn hit, giving me a lock, I didn't raise, now actually wanting him around on the river. "I'll wait till the river," I heard a voice in my head. (Occasionally, I DO hear voices, but we'll leave that for my therapy session).
He leads again, which is exactly what I want. I raised, he looked at me, thought for a second, and 3-bet. WTF! My first read was he rivered Q's/ full K's, because he knows that I'd never raise that river w/out, at least a K. (I'd expect a 3-bet preflop, but HU, he may think I'm on a total steal... and want me to think he has nothing). Maybe he hit runner-runner str8? "I let you get there, didn't I," I asked him. He just gave me a ****y smile. I only called his river 3-bet.
Thoughts on the horrendously-played flop, turn, and river, plze. I may be the worst player in Northern America.
