This looks really fishy to me for some reason. Possible collusion? Feeding chips to each other? Or just some really weird play?

I havent seen Dr. Auge raise UTG before this; seems a bit TAG. Other two I have no reads on because they havent been at the table long.

pokerstars Game #15631387607: Hold'em No Limit ($0.01/$0.02) - 2008/02/29 - 08:53:54 (ET)

*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot $6.18 | Rake $0.30
Board [6s 5c 7d Qc 2h]
Seat 1: TRM_SHRiMP (button) folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 2: Gassi_001 (small blind) showed [5d 4d] and won ($5.88) with a pair of Fives
Seat 3: the17_beast (big blind) folded before Flop
Seat 4: Dr.Auge folded on the River
Seat 5: AAQQ folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 6: mezelsau mucked [Ah 9c]

Mezelsau left the table after the next hand. Also, Gassi_001 has been playing ridiculously tight since then. Seems odd after such a loose-aggressive play, IMO. Im going to check previous hands hes been in.

Probably just this.
Hold'em No Limit ($0.01/$0.02)
Because it is this.

One guy had small suited connectors and the other had an A, not a stretch that they called PF raises.
FLOP *** [6s 5c 7d]
At this point SC guy has bottom pair and the ass end of an OESD but is probably jumping up and down by his chair. Ace high guy has top end of the gutshot straight draw.

TBH, the river call by A high guy is really the only thing that seems a bit off, but looking at his play in the hand (calling along with a gutshot), I'd venture this was more like a skill issue, not collusion. I've seen plenty of play just as strange. But IMO it doesn't look like any wrong doing to me.

Probably not! :eek:

It's a Stu Ungar call - he's convinced himself that opponent is on a bust straight draw, and he has made a hero call with Ace high. Or maybe he needs $10 for a tourney buyin and is a few bucks short? Not everyone cares about $2 as much as some people do, which is why you can sustain a high win rate at those levels by playing tight.

You're probably right. Just watching the hand play out and seeing the results were a bit interesting/odd to say the least.

Not what I put my opponents on at all.

I should get some sleep. LOL.
