Seemingly suicidal bluff

1/2 on the Strip.

V1 is playing very loose, but doesn't seem super focused in his aggression. Tenacious with any piece. Has also been running stupidly hot. Stack is roughly $600 UTG

Hero has $400 in the HJ.

V2 covers the table and was in about 50 percent of hands. Didn't seem to blindly chase, but is as equally tenacious as V1 with any piece. Until this hand, I had seen him mostly bet big when he had it, but was picking up his share of pots with consistent pressure. Sitting on roughly $700 on the CO.

V3 is relatively new to the table. Self-described rusty. Had already dusted off a $200 buy-in calling top two against a flush and has reloaded for another $200. Have only seen him lead when he has it. In the BB.

V1 calls 2
Hero :Ac :Kd raises to $12
V2 asks for a count on Hero's stack, calls $12
V3 calls $12

Flop ($49)

:7D: :QH: :TH: :

BB checks
UTG checks
Hero checks
CO checks



Turn ($49)

:7S: :

BB donks $35
UTG folds
Hero folds (Given what I had seen from V3 from that point, I can't see him NOT having a seven or a queen, and this sizing makes me think it's weighted toward a seven.)
CO calls $35

River ($119)

:JH:

BB bets $55
CO takes out headphones, looks concerned, says he doesn't know if he should call, fold or raise. After about a minute, raises to $125.
BB folds, shows :7H: :4H:
CO shows :AS: :QC:

I can't decide if I'm impressed by this bluff or deeply baffled.

    2.5x bluff in this spot is pretty sick laydown.

    Calling $70 to win almost 300. Blocks boats and loses to all flushes besides 65s or 32s? Still only a couple of flushes even possible.

    Don't see how he folds here... Line is strong but so few combos. He said he doesn't know if he should "fold" which would definitely make the other person call i would think

    Table talk for the win.

    As for 74hh guy, this hand shows, for the millionth time, why using a player pool strategy as your only guide keeps you in the minors forever.

    @persuadeo No doubt. I have no idea how that guy found a fold there. I'm not even sure why top/top thought he could muscle trips off his hand when he'd just seen the guy call off top two against a flush. Just baffling all around.
