the timing tell

Full Tilt Poker, $10 + $1 NL Hold'em Sit n' Go, 80/160 Blinds, 6 Players - Hand History Converter

BTN: 3,890
SB: 1,090
Hero (BB): 3,030
UTG: 1,158
MP: 1,305
CO: 3,027

Pre-Flop: (240) J 4 dealt to Hero (BB)
4 folds, SB calls 80, Hero checks

SB is a decent player, in big trouble. I've been trying to be aggressive, with some success.

Flop: (320) 4 2 7 (2 Players)
SB checks, Hero bets 200, SB raises to 930 and is All-In, Hero calls 730

I bet my second pair. Villain thinks and thinks, then shoves. I figure he's got overs and just doesn't believe I hit this board. If he's completely missed, he's got 6 outs. The most he could have is 15 (3h5h), then I'm in trouble. But he took so long to consider, I guessed he was weak and just trying to figure out if I have anything. I make the gutsy call.

Turn: (2,180) 6 (2 Players - 1 is All-In)
River: (2,180) Q (2 Players - 1 is All-In)

Results: 2,180 Pot
SB showed K 2 (a pair of Twos) and LOST (-1,090 NET)
Hero showed J 4 (a pair of Fours) and WON 2,180 (+1,090 NET)

Nicely done, he had 5 outs with bottom pair and an overcard - I was a 4-1 favorite with second pair.

Actually I don't hate his play. Might have worked if he'd done it insta. Good read by you.
