Harrington mangled his bet-sizing and astute poker player Tom Dwan latched onto it in an instant and made the correct range-based call.
Karganeth, I may not agree with all of the above but what you are questioning seems to have been explained here. As to the actual thought process Tom had here considering the weird bet-sizing I won't speak, but clearly he came to a similar conclusion in this particular spot.

Tom is certainly raising with Q9 and less in similar "spots", but against this opponent, after this odd sequence, he concluded he couldn't raise for value, so I doubt TD gets exploited here.

OK, well, my strategy is to raise for value when last to act on the river, only when I expect to make money by doing so.

It's just a wild guess, but durrrr might have a similar strategy.

If that's exploitable, I'd sure like to know how.

'I would think harrington25 is pretty darn qualified to comment on the hand. If it were "standard", that log wouldn't exist, nor would this thread.'

Yup, harrington25 is right...everyone else (who disagrees with him) is wrong...impeccable logic...end thread!!!

Folding the third nuts would basically prove he was superusing whereas calling leaves it open to debate.
yeah cause this is clearly the most logical explanation for calling with a bottom boat on the river in omaha.

There's nothing odd about this sequence. To not raise Q9 here seems ultra weak since only TT, TT, TT and QQ (1 combination) could beat him. jungleman12 hasn't shown a crazy amount of strength and he could easily be betting a very wide range of hands (due to the turn being very draw heavy). To me it seems like putting him on 4 possible hands (TT QQ) is just crazy.

Not sure what jungleman12 has to do with this, but anyway, it's not mainly a question of what hands have him beat, it's a question of what worse hands will call a raise.

Jared. My mistake. Anyway, my point isn't the specifics of the hand, I'm talking about the general strategy and the consequences of only raising QQ and 99 in that spot. The only way to call is if durrrr had some kind of obvious read on his opponent like bet timing and bet sizing.

You're doing it wrong.

You're only thinking about what hands beat him. You're not thinking about what hands will call if he raises given the previous action in the pot. If no hands will call except hands that beat you then there is no value to raising.

You should read Luke Schwartzs explanation as to why he checked back the 2nd nut flush in position HU NLHE (he had Kd on a 4 diamond board). It will make things clearer to you. Briefly, his reasoning was that his opponent either had the Ad or no diamonds given the prior action. Thus no value to betting his 2nd nuts. His opponent did have the Ad and was going for the river c/r.

Is there still a thread going on about how durrrr didn't raise the third nuts on the river? Playing Lolmaha

Every so often a thread come up that mystifies for all the wrong reasons.

This is one such thread.

Let's discuss the weather now. That ought to be just as much a revelation.

What difference does it make? If he just has a busted draw (unlikely, given the action), what would be the point of raising on the river with a hand that has any showdown value?

I think that's why C-Unit is curious as to "what you're on about."

Cor, blimey.

There seems to be this failure of many here to properly identify the actual reason one might raise in a given circumstance. Raising is most useful when you will make an inferior hand call or an inferior hand fold.

OK, those are all the reasons, when you're last to act on the river.

You meant a "better" hand fold, as I'm sure you realize...

Plus you are reopening the action, so you have to worry about either paying off a reraise from a better hand, or getting bluffed off the best hand (IIRC stacks were deep enough for both of those to be a consideration here).

Anyhoo, TTHRIC.

Very rude of Harrington25.

No debate here. Superuser folds.

Super standard to call, no worse hand is gonna call a reraise except for maybe the same hand.

And why would Durrrr call if he knew he were beat anyway??

This Harrington dude seems pretty clueless here, really thought higher of him.
