This guy check raises me with nothing, then calls my all in with nothing. No pair, and no draw of any kind. Then hits runner runner?? Four hands later i get my last 500 chips all in with KK preflop against Ace 2 and an ace hits on the flop. This makes me wonder about cheating and the integrity of the games. I mean was this a bot or something controlled by pokerstars? Someone please explain this????

Wowza:eek:. Looks like he's trying out the "worst hand always sucks out" theory.

The better question is why are you mini-raising with 7-8 off suit in the first place?

Not a great explanation, but I think the minraise in this situation is not so bad. Looks like this could have been one of the first few hands, and there is often a brief 'feeling out' period. Also it's a HU match. Bigger raise more important in a fuller table to help drive out players, in HU the mere raise is a statement rather than such a huge weapon. Not discounting the big raise as a weapon, the min raise here looks more like touching sabers in a sword fight. Villains acceptance of that challenge with a bigger sword tap (his MIN reraise) just suggests to me that he is 'willing to engage' with his hand.

Like I said, not a great explanation, but a possible mindset.

Beyond that there is no sane explanation for villains play here.

You played the hand well you just fell on someone who was extremely confident you were rnning for the straight and even after his bad read he got extremely lucky.

I Dont understand this guys play and dont guess i ever will. To answer Mrsnakes question, in HU play i usually always either raise or fold on the button. I never just call. I like to min raise with low suited connectors or sometimes low pocket pairs. But im always switching it up depending on the opponent and previous hands.

Well, you just can't legislate for that mate. Very unlucky.

A good raise (if slightly small) from the SB firstly.

You hit a monster flop, played it well and god knows what he was thinking. Fair enough, try the steal but 120 was no where near enough to get you off that, and then him calling your all in was just well, weird. Unlucky.

I've had this before. I'd raised with KJ and hit top pair on the flop of:

6h-Jd-7c

I raised it again, only to get re-raised. So I moved all in.

Donk called with QT.

Turn was a T.

River was a Q.

It hurts, but - you just gotta keep going.

Good Luck,

BF

bad luck. but you'll beat him the other 99 times out of a hundred (or something like that).

out of interest, how did that affect the rest of the match? If I'm right, you still had 800 chips left?

did it put you on tilt or did he get lucky again or did you batter his arse?
