Yeah, I can see your thinking thinking there - due to intimidation factor we'll get a fold a lot here from hands that beat us and we get a ton more value from hands we have crushed. Anyone else other ideas? No? Well I did indeed take the min bet line and I'll post what happened next...

Can we raise it up again? If we can, then I say do that. if not then you probably have to call, as you are committed to the pot.
Very interesting hand btw.

WTF can we put him on and wth do we do?

imo that last minraise signifies JT and we have to fold or if you're feeling really lucky you could raise TWO morebbs and maybe bluff him off.

I thought what the situation needed was some chatbox intimidation:

*** RIVER *** [Qh Ad 7d 9s] [2d]

blankoblanco: raises $0.02 to $0.04

jaketrevvor said, "INSTARAISE"
jaketrevvor: raises $0.02 to $0.10
blankoblanco: raises $0.02 to $0.12


he doesn't seemed phased though...

to be fair, that's the only part tampered with. the action of the hand is just as it happened

okay, now minraising for value is done. he's clearly got at least JT and you're beat. now i think you can minraise as a pure bluff

Combu's got it here imo. I fired two barrels then facing raw aggression had to tank it

I knew it, everyone's stumped. Well I enventually decided to min. raise as I can't call as I'm probably beat, can't fold coz I'm pot comitted and can't raise larger as I will lose more when he calls:

blankoblanco: raises $0.02 to $0.24

jaketrevvor said, "im very confident about my hand imo"
jaketrevvor: raises $0.02 to $0.30

jaketrevvor: raises $0.02 to $0.34

blankoblanco: raises $0.02 to $0.36
Emperor XIX said, "this is going on the board"
jaketrevvor said, "right... not sure about this..."
jaketrevvor said, "what's his range?"
jaketrevvor has timed out

Well the 13 2 cent raises haven't phased him. I go pull out the big guns. Pop it from 36 to 39. If he comes over the top we can then conclude that we're probably beat, and since we're only getting 52.333 to 1 odds to call, we'd have to fold.
