I have a feeling even if I bet more on the flop and turn he would have kept calling...I just don't know why he did...:mad:

You played that fine, as I see it. The opponent is an idiot. Can`t imagine what he thought he was doing.

There were no flush or straight draws really, so he may have thought you had a 10 at best (if that), so why not call the smaller bets. Then he got lucky on the river.

That's the only problem with the lower limit tables, why we all get crappy calls that suck out. Sure, you may be betting 10xBB, but in reality people spend more on a pack of gum these days. So, to spend $1.05 to get to the river isn't much to see if his 9's held up. I think you may have the same problem I had which was not betting enough to knock him out after the flop. (this if from a rookie though). If this were a $2.00/$5.00, he probably would not have have seen a $65.00 bet by the turn, but for $.65, when he had $.40 in already, why not. The odds may not be right, but he paid more for his extra cheese on his burger at McD's for lunch :)

Yeah, but you gotta realize if you play those tables...then you don't have that big of BR...I mean, I ain't rockin' no mean cash in my BR, but I still play smart...and after I saw him beat me for that...I got so pissed and just left the table knowing that I just lost some of my BR to a dumbass that doesn't know how to play actual poker.

It's very irritating to say the least...:(

I hear ya'. For us small stakes players, it's the only place we can afford to play, but at the same time it's where you get people with suck outs for 'cheap'. It's very frustrating.

This is a little out of the subject but I just thought that this might "comfort" you. Happened to me playing 3/6$ 6-handed NL last spring...

I was sitting at the SB with a 750$ stack and found aces in the hole. Everyone folded to the button who made it 20$ to go. I re-raised to 45$, BB calls and the button re-raises to 100$. I Immediately push all in 750$, BB folds and the button calls and shows 6h 7h.

The Flop: 6 7 K rainbow

and of course his two pairs held up all the way. Was pretty happy after I saw what the guy called with but not too happy after I saw the board... I think that wasn't one of those cheap suckouts though...

One of the sickest calls I've had so far in cash-games...

Well, that is sad that he raised 6-7 suited with all that money...but that guy probably had money up the butt and didn't really care...I hate people like that, esspecially in live cash games...
The old people have so much money then when they lose, they keep putting it in and losing it again...unfortunately I don't win any...:(

Considering the board, I don't think it could've been prevented. With a board like this, the money goes in. If you had raised more preflop, villain wouldn't have folded either...

There's no one to blame but lady fortune.
