An interesting hand reading exercise that comes from an email submission to the Crush Live Call-in show. Bart goes through the logic process and boils down the villain's holding to one specific hand.
UTG ($50) raise to $10, Hero ($1100) calls Ah Ad. Fold to BB ($900) 3! bets to $40, UTG calls. Hero 4! bets to $120.
BB calls, UTG calls all-in for $10.
FLOP: Qs 7h 5d ($150/$140) BB checks. Hero bets $175, BB thinks its $75 and calls, doesn’t know its $175 but they force him to keep the $75 in the pot so he calls the $175.
TURN: Js ($150/$490) BB checks, Hero bets $250, BB calls.
RIVER: Ac ($150/$990) BB checks Hero call-in $350, BB calls. What hand does he have here?
