Guy With 95% VP$IP's call on the river is truly what gets me. Yeah, it's a gargantuan pot, but he has nine high. Here's the list of hands he can beat:

38
37
67
68
78

He can't even tie with another nine high, since he has nine high no kicker (NHNK?). Granted in a 30BB pot your standards for a crying call are a little bit lower than usual, but, man.

I'm surprised you didn't cap the turn.

I didn't cap the turn because I figured Guy With 95% VP$IP would do it for me anyway, and there were a couple of people still to act behind me - I thought they might call two bets but not three.

(30BB, man, what more do you want?)
