8/16 holdem. I can't remember the details of this hand, but on the river, I called with a pair of nines, a busted draw that could beat a bluff on the end — and beat a bluff it did.

As I'm stacking the pot, a couple people start talking. Apparently I was an idiot for calling here. One guy said, "Did you misread your hand?"

What's the correct answer in this situation? In retrospect, I think it was "yes, I misread my hand" (and please bluff at me more), but instead, I said that the pot was huge.

I'd like to read another book like Middle Limit Holdem Poker, but slightly different. MLHP defines a concept, then illustrates by example. Usually, the first example illustrates the concept, the second illustrates a special case, etc.  It's a little predictble.

What I want is just the examples, and not in any particular order.

I'm aware of How Good is Your Pot Limit Omaha?  I think that's closer to what I want, but I haven't read it yet. (I know how good my PLO is. It's awful.)

The ideal book would be just a few decisions from a hand with the example on the next page. (I was far too tempted to read the solutions in MLHP, which were always the next paragraph.)  How Good... is formatted okay for this, I think,

Does any such book exist?

Hm. No. Crazy always trumped information. But thanks — I'll take a look.
