Wow, this one hurt. Perhaps I should have checked the river, and maybe just called his raise. But he had been very loose and sticking around with low pairs. Twice he had re-raised the river with 2nd pair after being bet into from the start. I would have actually felt better if he stuck around with 2nd pair and caught 2 pair on the turn or something. But this is just sick. I hadn't had much to play with, so I had a relatively tight image. Just don't understand why he can justify sticking around, all the info he had pointed towards folding. I guess hes smarter than me though, because he won the pot.

People chase, plain and simple - as you said he had been very loose, so I think a check would be okay on the river.  Even a loose player will have problems calling 3 bullets without having TPTK or better.

Personally, I would have raised preflop - 6-man is all about aggression, and there's few hands that villain could be holding in his position (given his limp) that have you beat - and those that do have you beat (Ax), you're quite live and hold position. That's just me though, and I have a much different style from you as you know Cheesy

I agree a check back on the river would have been fine. as played you should have just called his re-raise instead of shoving.

Yeah, I definitely didn't play the river well. Should have kept it low and just checked. But the fact that he chased an inside draw is a bummer, seems like bad plays have been getting rewarded against me recently. I know that's the variance in poker, but it doesn't make it sting any less.

Sorry for the following vent - please ignore it. I have had a tough run of luck on the cash tables though, and it is really starting to piss me off. I haven't gotten much to play with, but when I do I get the money in the pot in great spots only to lose on some 2 or 3 outer.  Haven't caught a flush draw to save my life. And when I do get a big hand, its either a suckout or folds. And the folding isnt because I am giving away my hand, I have tried various methods to get value and each time its insta fold.
