The only thing I'm thinking about here is how to get the money in the middle.

"lets gambool" and shove seems like a decent action.

Act like you are doing some math calculations, shake your head, mutter about how you can't fold, this is so sick, and shove .

Maybe he made a read on you AFTER he bet... so now he's trying to get out of it by reading you for a sucker that doesnt like money.

I would push, and flash just the 5. Give him a chance to make a fold.

In my home games, some of my buddies make friendly comments like "just lay it down" when they know they have me beat. I probably push and pull one of those numbers. If he perceives you as a nice guy, he'll fold. If he thinks you're malicious, he'll call. He saved you money when you were beat, but he's not going to return the money you invested postflop, so you shouldn't feel the need to return it to him especially since he showed you the card after he reraised. You save the rest of my stack, I'll save the rest of yours!

Its immoral to let a sucker keep his money.

mike,

i havent read through the entire thread, but i think you'd agree with me that in this spot you dont extract any more value from the guy. he was trying to be nice- keep it that way. the thing about this spot that people aren't realizing is that this guy lets you off the hook no matter what your holding is, i.e., when you have bottom set or top two or AA or any two cards that you might think is best, this guy lets you off the hook. it just so happens that this time you had him crushed. taking advantage of the guys friendly not so competitive nature is bad karma, and imho will lose you more money over the long run and create an uncomfortable air between the two of you.
