what I can say is PAIKTISGR made a good try, and a donk called from you

Hey hey, u gotta chill buddy. I post this hand for kakis to check it out. I did not say it's a good call, neither am i proud of it. Let me know if you see me showing off the call in any of my post.

Am i not suppose to answer the question post by others?

If you says that it's a 6 or 9max table, yes a bad call for sure. But well, heads up game. We show down with this or worst.

In the previous hand, the river was a great card to bet since 56 got there, but villian chose to give up barreling the river to fold out A high and 1 pair type hands while being in position after semi-bluffing the turn with an OESD. This probably indicates that villian is less like to bluff on the river, but you decide to look him up with K high in the hand posted in OP? I hope you are not being result-oriented here, since your thought process doesn't really make sense and is contradicting...

Villian will probably take a note on you "call 1/3 river vbet with K hi on connected board."

Definitely not a good call. Even at heads up. That type of board is quite bad and there aren't many hands you can beat with k2 high as any ace high or most king high will win you there.

Times when you call ppl with a mediocre high card and win sure it'll make you feel like a hero. But in reality you'll lose much more often. Doing it once or twice is alright as it discourages ppl from bluffing you in future but calls like this are generally poor ev
