If he has two pair, he only has 4 outs, that's 16 percent chance to win, this is definitely a trap situation. You played this correctly, from beginning to end. If not for the bad beat, you would have won a huge some of money from this rock.
Also, I am curious to how he plays preflop, with raises and such. It seems like if he had say JJ, he would have at least raised preflop dont you think??? My guess is he had an ace, probably ace jack.
I agree with this 110%, I think you played this great PN, you put yourself in a position where you could really get him good. With the read you have on this guy, and the way he was betting, there are only 2 hands he could have up to the turn, either a set or 2 pair, with the 2 pair being more likely. By passively calling him he puts you on a weaker A or weaker 2 pair if he has AK, setting up the stage for you.
I think your thought of trying to commit him on the river was the way to go, if the A doesn't come he'll probably bet out ~$100 (pot bet) and you nailed him. Now, he claims to have K8? And he bet $200 into a $100 pot? Lmao, with his profile that's about as likely as my dog walking on the moon tomorrow. There is nothing sure in this world, but I think you certainly made the correct lay down.
Don't let the hand haunt you PN, you played it correctly, I would have done the same. It was just bad luck, an opportunity lost after a perfect setup because he just got lucky in a fat way. I really hate this game at times lol. On the bright side, in the big misfortune, you made a HELL of a lay down. Be happy about that, because its the sign of a good player, being able to throw a made hand in the muck in face of evidence your hand is now 2nd best. Great job sir.
P.S. Next time don't tell him what you had, you might play him again.
