Do not bluff fish

I forget not to bluff the fish, but this is very wtf.

TEXAS_HOLDEM, NO_LIMIT, T4-73792947-41
played at "Chiang Mai" for USD TC from 2008-08-07 22:32 until 2008-08-07 22:33
Seat 1: donkdude ($3,245 in chips)
Seat 2: akhenaton38 ($1,785 in chips)
Seat 3: acato1 ($8,155 in chips)
Seat 4: tucan513 ($6,520 in chips)
Seat 5: cebelica ($2,410 in chips)
Seat 6: calaman ($3,480 in chips)
Seat 8: TeddysBear81 ($2,380 in chips)
Seat 9: Dr Zen ($4,485 in chips)
Seat 10: vato24 ($2,315 in chips)
acato1 posts blind ($50), tucan513 posts blind ($100).

I have 9d8d.

cebelica folds, calaman folds, TeddysBear81 folds, Dr Zen bets $250

It's not a strong hand for a raise but worth trying to steal with when folded to me.

, vato24 folds, donkdude folds, akhenaton38 folds, acato1 folds, tucan513 calls $150.

FLOP [board cards: QS 5D KC ]
tucan513 checks, Dr Zen bets $400, tucan513 calls $400.

That board may have hit him but more importantly it hits most raising ranges so I'm going to put a bet in. I hate being called.

TURN [board cards: QS 5D KC QD ]
tucan513 checks, Dr Zen checks.

I pick up a flush draw so I don't bluff off my equity.

RIVER [board cards: QS 5D KC QD KH ]
tucan513 checks, Dr Zen bets $1,350

But it's worth a bluff here. I put in a full pot bet, which strongly reps a K. Unless he has a K, he can't call. It's unlikely he does, but he may just call with a Q.

, tucan513 calls $1,350.

Oh dear. K or Q, right?

tucan513 shows [ AS 5S ]


I hate playing these idiots. His play is plain awful. He should fold preflop. Calling with easily dominated hands is a mistake, and the suitedness makes no real difference. His call on the flop is terrible with bottom pair. You have to put me on the bluff, and why would you? But even worse is the river. He is calling with A high. He can only be good against AJ/AT, something like that, or a counterfeited pair. But if I had a pair on the flop, his call with a pair of 5s is awful.

Now, I know that my bet on the river is going to look a bit like A high if I bet small. But a PSB says "I have a king that was scared of the Q on the turn". Even the drunk, stupid fish on PokerRoom understand that kind of talk. Or maybe not.

I am jack of PokerRoom now. I still have the doomswitch there. I played a few 5ers but I barely broke even. That's a waste of my time.
