5/10 live game at the casino morongo.
UTG is a supertight old player who has only pushed in twice, once with a set on the turn and the other time with a nut flush. I've seen him play K10 suited for a decent pot, but only with position and he doesn't even raise with QQ in MP preflop. Button is just a complete idiot-he's called my reraise for $200 preflop with A5 suited and puts in a small raise on the button every hand.
UTG has $1000, Button has $4000, I have $3300.
I'm dealt K [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] Q [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] in the big blind. UTG limps. Folded to the button who makes it 25. I call, UTG calls.
Flop comes down K [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] 4 [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] 9 [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]
I check, UTG bets 35, Button calls. I raise to $135. UTG and button call.
Turn comes K [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] I bet out for $120, two callers.
River comes 8 [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]
At this point, I'm worried about what UTG could have so I check. I check, he immediately moves all-in for $720. Button folds. Do I call or fold in this spot?

The only reason to check this river is if you intend to call. I hope you didn't fold, I'm pretty sure this is a "damn, that guy who I thought was tight all night pulled some stupid [censored]."

[/ QUOTE ]

Nah, I checked because that guy sticking in the pot made me doubt I was good. Everybody at the table was talking about how they were shocked he only had a weak king and they all assumed he was full. If it makes you feel better, I ended up taking his stack with a set versus a severe overplay of AA.

I don't play these limits but I think you needed to bet about 250-300 on the river with intentions of folding to an all in. You will probably see K [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]X [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] here but A [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]K [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] and 99 look like real possibilites.

It's tough to say what UTG has given his tiny flop bet and then just smooth calling the rest of the way. Seems like 99/44 is the most likely hand.

Also, I'm wondering why you check/raised the flop? Was this just for deception?

i would have bet 250 or so on the river into him, as he will just call with a weaker K if your hand is good.

he could have flopped a set and looked to jam the turn to out-price the diamond draw, but he managed to fill up and wanted the idiot button to come along and pay him off on the river.

2-1 on your call isn't enough here to make the crying call i dont think, as i expect your hand to be good a far less time than that.

All of this sounds right to me.

This has already been covered-thought I could push off the tight player and get it heads up against button, who I thought I was beating.

How tight could UTG be limping with K3? I know it's been said, but i think a blocking bet is key here on the river.

Nice... Isn't sweet when you get your money back from a monkey who only had it because of one of your own mistakes?

Block bet, as in bet 200 and fold for ~400 more? Or block bet then call? The first option seems terrible and the second is odd because if he's got a raising hand he's got a calling hand so I might as well bet to make sure that a worse K doesn't check behind...I would appreciate if you attached a $ amount to the words "block bet".
As for the K3 limp not making him tight, needless to say everybody was shocked. The guy was a rock.
