I agree… knows he was ahead until the river and calls off anyway? I’ve certainly been married to my fair share of hands, but not THIS married!Also, I am baffled that villain would essentially give up in the tournament. They still have 33bb in early/mid stage. Plenty of play left.
I personally would have played this more cautiously because it’s not a positive EV situation given expected ranges and positions. By definition, HERO was either a coin flip (on the flop) or big EV- on the turn.
It’s great that it worked out for you, and I hope you won the points standing, but you’re “expected” to lose 2/3 of the time here.
Curious what your plan for the river was if you missed the flush?
Check? And risk the villain betting for value?
If it was to shove as if you actually had suited spades as your hole cards (bluff a flopped flush), and Villain called, suddenly his play looks like an amazing read and we’d be questioning your play
Just my 2¢… everybody gets to play the way they want.
