    Default 25nl River Spot [Zoom]

    This was a snap ship on the river from villain, current stats were 33/17 over 53 hands...

    PokerStars Zoom No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (6 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from

    Hero (Button) ($35.78)
    SB ($38.25)
    BB ($30.78)
    UTG ($33.31)
    MP ($147.59)
    CO ($24.65)

    Preflop: Hero is Button with 8, 8
    UTG bets $0.50, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.50, 1 fold, BB calls $0.25

    Flop: ($1.60) 7, 2, 8 (3 players)
    BB bets $1.07, 1 fold, Hero raises to $2.75, BB calls $1.68

    My guess is he completed from the big blind with 56 and he's hit his straight on the river. I think if he had a set of 2's or 7's he would have re-raised the turn, especially as there was then a flush draw.

    Make a tight fold imo...(but I do fold too often).

    soaking up ethanol, moving on up
    combos of 77/22 outnumber combos of 56s so this is a call. You'll lose about 1/3 of the time so don't stress it when/if it happens. Limp behind preflop standard for you?

    Lighting sweet moneys on fire.
    It's a limped pot and villain overbets river which makes it look like 56/TJ or even 99/AA, way more than 22/77. Perfectly reasonable to not be happy here.

    Absolutely raise preflop though.

    TJ/56/AA are very unlikely, snapcall
    Nine to five is how to survive - I ain't trying to survive / I'm trying to live it to the limit and love it a lot //
