I'm VERY inexperienced at ring games. Here's a hand that puzzled me for a bit:

pokerstars Game #18014023362: Hold'em No Limit ($0.05/$0.10) - 2008/06/08 - 23:49:03 (ET)

Seat 4: AlvimBM ($10.65 in chips)
Seat 5: un-diluted ($8.25 in chips)
Seat 6: iksn ($6 in chips)
Seat 9: MrSticker66 ($10.40 in chips)

un-diluted????

fully aware of paired board and hearts, but betting (or lack of) suggests no hearts as far as I can see. what the hell does he have, a hand that beats mine? or a 5??

can never fold here. just call and if he has a boat, it's only an extra 10 BBs lost.

Same villain too right? I don't want to interfere with analysis since I know result.
