Playing 2/5 with effective stacks of $850. I've been at the table about 90 minutes at this point and have a TAG image. I've only shown down one hand, a straight where the opponent had 2p. I've picked up a few pots here and there by raising pre and cbetting, etc... Nothing fancy. V is to my immediate right and from what I can gather, has pulled an all nighter and is in his 12th-13th hour of playing. He has tried to talk strategy a few times with me about hands, and while I have listened to get an insight into his play, it's been mostly one sided conversation. I suspect that while he has a clue about how the game is played, I doubt he is much more than break-even.
The action gets folded to V who limps and I raise to $25 in the c/o with KdQd. Folded to V who calls.
Flop (57 pre rake) Kc 2d 3d. V donks into me for 30 and I raise to 85. Villain goes into the tank. e.g. Forever. I've never called the clock on anyone before, but I thought about it this time. Then, it gets weird. He flips over his hand, 2h3h. He then calls. Calls? WTF? There are two streets left to play, several hundred dollars left in each stack, and he calls.
Turn (222 post rake). 8c. V checks to me. What the hell do I do here? I am behind. Do I bet knowing that he knows I can see his hand? Do I check it back?
Totally lost on what the proper play here is. Let me know your thoughts and I'll post the outcome, which was equally bizarre.....
