re: Poker & Analyze This!
at a .01/.02 cent game people will do every conceivable crazy thing you can, and have not yet imagined. With you just arriving, you have no idea what anyone is holding or how any of them are playing. Your only clue at that point was stack size, and here villain was on the short side. Could indicate he is extra cheap, or maybe just got a big beat, but having just arrived you really have no other clue.
His preflop action suggests an A, possibly suited, could be the Ah, could be 2 hearts. You could be dead from the git go here. You slow played it to a degree, do you think you are the only one capable of doing that?
I'd have bet bigger PF. Reraising to about 20 cents. If he comes back hard, I'd probably have dropped those J's without having good reads on this villain. Remember there are only 3 ways to play pocket jacks, and all of them are wrong!
The blocking bet on the river was probably too small. I like the notion of putting doubt in villains mind, but expect he probably shoved the rest of his chips in and you called. A larger blocking bet would have provided that doubt. Guess is he flushed, or perhaps was slow playing you with AA and again you were dead from the git go.
