I was just in disbelief. This guy had one move, minraise preflop, flop, turn, ect, whenever he got in a pot, ect, obv I beat him, but I still don't understand how these two folds occur.

I thought when he did it the first time, maybe he accidentally clicked fold and clicked enter after that (because PS is nice enough to ask twice, "ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO FOLD, YOU CAN JUST CHECK" or basically that), but when he did it a 2nd time, I just asked myself why in the world would he fold to me there?

I mean, he's playing $11.50 HU, I think he's been playing for at least long enough to know to check the BB for free. I really have no explanations right now to why he folded to me there.

Explanations? Anyone?

Lol, doubtful.

He was insulting me half the time, calling me things that should not be written on this forum.
If you PM me the insulting hand histories, I'll put them in "Stick's Chatbox Hall of Shame" on my blog.

Granted, I'm still pretty new to this poker stuff and all, but where did you get the chart and the information to chart?

I think the saddest thing off the sharkscope graph that DM pulled up--Paul700 has played 800+ games, and he still doesn't know that you can check hands from BB and see a free flop if SB just calls the BB.

Maybe it was crazy, crazy meta-gaming strategy that just slowly developed and he never got a chance to switch gears? Obv, unlikely, considering blind levels, but still, I've come across some bad poker players, but this has to be the worst player I've found.

He obviously didnt like his cards to fold there and with you calling its almost as if he is scared off every time.:D
I agree with you guys of course if it cost nothing to see flop i do not understand why he wouldnt want too even with 2-3,2-4 or something he could flop two pair which would be easy to hide.

Maybe he was not there, having run off to the can for a moment.....

Or he was abducted by aliens who can control the space time continuum and was returned just after time out, after undergoing a complete viva section and rebuilding along with a gastric bypass, craniotmy, mouse clicking arm amputation and fitting for a prosthesis.

Im thinking he doesnt want to see the flop and get sucked into a pot with crappy hole cards.

But you must have control and see the flop...no excuses
