I like your bluff attempt on the turn, but not your raise on the river. My read would have been that he held a 9, hence the flop bet of $2. When another 9 fell, he checked because he feared you had a king (and therefore a better fullhouse). He went into check/call mode when you bet $5, in case you did not have the K. What’s strange is that he bets INTO you on the river. At that point, I don’t like your raise b/c you’re only getting called if your beat, mostly likely by a K or 9.Yes, he did play it “wrong”, but you could have saved yourself some $$ here, imo. My read would have been wrong, but it would have cost me a lot less. By the way, next time try not to post the results..it makes for a more meaningful discussion when we don’t know the outcome or what cards opponents had.
