Is there any way I could have seen this coming?
New to the table, I've seen 2-3 hands but not enough to get any kind of a read. Table seems pretty passive, plenty being folded pre-flop & after that betting looks fairly standard.
All through this hand I was wandering why he would be giving me odds
to chase. I thought he may have a higher flush draw, but thought that unlikely.
When I called on the river I thought I had the best hand but because his betting had confused me I resisted the temptation to raise on the river. However I could have lost a lot of money here. Is there any way I could have spotted the danger?
PS. Had I been in his shoes, I'd have bet much more on the river, probably overbetting slightly. Would this have been a good play?
