Estelle calls I show AJ
I told her nice call after but I don't think it was, especially if you know the way I play at all. I don't bluff a lot and 9/10 times, the way I am betting I have better than top pair.

Well, first off, I havn't played with you too much, so I didn't exactly know your style. I was just going off the reads I made at the table at the time. Secondly, I had put you on AK, AQ, AJ type of hand there on the flop, and more towards AK with a diamond draw type of hand. It seemed to me it was purely a C-bet into me on the flop. On the turn the only thing that worried me was the possibly JJ or even 33 on the flop, however, I just went with my instinct and kept you more so along the lines of AK, AQ, or AJ. When you fired again on the river, definitely sent up red flags, but from what I had put you on, that river card definitely couldn't have helped you in any way, shape, or form, and with the size of the pot, I had to go with my read and my instincts and call.
If I had really believed you had a set, I think I would have gotten away from this.
Maybe if I had played with you before and known how tight a player you are (or you claim to be), then I would have folded with a bit more ease. But at the time, call seemed like the right move there.
