Hero is mid 30s white guy, been winning several big show-down pots with premium hands, up about $700. Has $1000 in chips to start the hand.
Villain is mid 20s hispanic guy. Half drunk, loud talker, engaging in conversations with his immediate table mates. Loves to talk smack. Headphones and hoodie. Raising constantly pre-flop. He has about $2000 in chips. When I sat down he had about same amount, so do not know how he got so big stacked.
Villain and I were the top dogs at the table as far as stack size. Before reading this hand and laughing at my horrible call, please read the following: About an hour prior to this hand, I was heads up w V and spiked a set on river. He paid me off (I won think a couple hundred total), and he proceeded to denigrate my poker skills (I smiled and said, "Well, I got lucky"). About 30 minutes prior to this hand, I raised the V after he c-bet on a flop of A48 (I had AQ). He glared at me and folded. About 5 minutes prior to this hand, I bluffed another player on a paired board after the turn. The other player tank-called; I checked the river, he bet, I snap folded, and the V shouts "There you go bro! You got stand up to that guy!"
V raises UTG (he is raising pre-flop constantly, probably half the hands) to $30, I call in late position with two black 99, guy in BB calls.
Flop 5d9hKd Pot $90
V bets $35, I raise to $135, BB folds, V calls in a calm manner, not hesitating.
Turn Qc. V cheks. I bet $200. V calls in same fairly calm manner, not hesitating but not liking the call.
River Tc. V almost immediately goes all in. I had about $600 left. Does anybody ever call here?
I was of course worried about the flush draw. Now we have to give V credit for having a J? Is he crazy enough to be bluffing? Ordinarily I would say No, as the theories expressed by Bart and everyone here correctly claim that rec players are not capable of bluffing like that on the turn or river. But what about the history between myself and V? I could tell he wanted to rub a bluff in my face and brag to his table mates about what a genius he was. Plus we have to not discount the chance that he hit two pair and was putting me on AK.
Thank you in advance for any comments.
