River shove=bluff?

These two hands tonight amused me after the discussion about river shoves with TFAL.

Credit to the villain in the first hand - he got me good.

Side note: after the second hand above, my NL is continuing to run extremely well.

Nice work all 'round.

More to the point is that there are no hard and fast rules in poker when it comes to predicting behaviour. He shoves because he has a hand; He shoves as a bluff because he hasn't got a hand; He shoves because he has a hand and it looks like a bluff; He shoves because he hasn't got a hand and he knows that you know that he knows it looks like a bluff.
