It should be noted that the villain is Supernova on PokerStars and generally played for higher stakes but I chose to play him heads-up as he seemed to have a history of playing lower stakes for what seemed like to blow off steam, so I expected erratic play.

In this pot I raise with the Q3o from the button and check behind the Queen-high board for deception. I turn a 3 then chose to just call his lead out. The river comes a very nice 3 which I assumed I didn’t even need and he checked, I bet $16.10 into $22.30 and he check-raises me to $66. I so thought this was a bluff but even still had no choice but to ship for $200 (effective stack). He thinks, then calls with just A9!
