only thing i could think is that he knew you were bluffing, although i would find it tough to call with that many overcards lol. seems like you are having a rough night of it!!!

Yeah not winning but this hand doesn't bother me too much. I knew he was weak and obviosuly he guessed I had ace high, I know this guy isn't an idiot but unless he just said "screw it". It isn't often that 2 decent players players run a hand like this one. The more I think about it though the more I think he just said screw it I am calling this guy!

yeah actually been a rough start to the week money wise..... I wouldn't be making moves like this if my roll caouldn't take the hit if I am wrong though. This hand just intrigues me, a moron I see making this call. I am not saying this guy is a shark but definately not somebody I would guess to make these calls.

Well his calls were good, but many times players do not hit a board of 43T49, so he probably figured you had two overcards and kept firing at the pot.

His river call was very good, he is either a lucky bastard or had notes on you, etc.

It takes guts to fire bluffs on all three betting rounds, I am very suprised he called the river bet, since most players will check a hand down if they completely miss.

Well he made calls I would not make... Rolled with my initial read that he was very weak his flop call and turn bet screamed at me that he was making a move, yeah I could have easily gotten away from it. When I saw I was right and if you are gonna make a play at a guy when he is holding pocket 2's I don't know of a better position..... Now obviously the results went his way but I don't see how his "calls" were good. He made a great move betting the turn but calling me after that I don't know if you can call those calls "good". He might have had notes on me but it's not likely he would have ever seen me commit to a bluff like that, simply because I don't remember making one in a cash game that got called! At least as strongly as I played that one.

You sure he's a decent player? That was horrid - if he thinks you're strong it's an easy fold and if he thinks you're weak he should raise the flop or maybe call and push the turn, the calling all the way down and the incredibly weak turn/river leads are silly.

am I sure? of course not but the information I had on him said he was decent...I sure as shit don't see how I gave him any reason to believe I was weak!

Wow! I would never have gone that far when all I have is pocket dueces and there are five overcards on the board. I certianly wouldn't have gone all in. What a bad call this guy made!
