Please take a look at this betting round and tell me what you think 4ort85 had:

(If you ask why I called and bet big on the river with nothing, then its because of the opponents previous betting habits)

You know what, I dont think anybody (no matter how professional you are) will ever work out what he was doing.

With hands like this:

Maybe he's on tilt.

Some players just call anything and dont care if they lose their money

Although in most cases that would be the reason, it was with PS, and you start with 1000 chips I think it is so he was actually in a fine position!

Was this player very loose/passive? If so I can (maybe) understand the check and call on the flop/turn if he will call down with middle pair/bottom pair. But a CB on the flop would have probably taken it right there.

I think 4otrwhatever just doesn't like money, honestly.

This was near to the beginning of the tournament - within the first half an hour from what I remember.
Bit of a calling station! Only stayed in because he kept getting ridiculously lucky - even took a few players out lol.

Looking back at the hand now, I think I should have bet the flop like you recommend!
