      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8:club: , 7:heart:
      MP2 calls $0,25, 4 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0,60) 5:spade: , 9:diamond: , 6:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,50, MP2 calls $0,50.

      Turn: ($1,60) A:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1,50, MP2 calls $1,50.

      River: ($4,60) 9:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $4,00, MP2 raises to $44,97 (All-In),

      I've seen this guy push gutshot+lowest pair for a full stack on a turn. Still, the board pairing in this hand is a bit scary. I was hoping he would call my big bet with an ace or a nine or something like that.

      He doesnt seem overly aggro so he might have a hand, but we must fear only A9, 55 and 66 imo.
      If hes a good player he will raise his set on flop or at least on turn.
      If hes a bad player he will slowplay it as played but on the other hand if hes bad he might do this with an A, 9, 2pair or FD even(since you saw him shove before).

      I might call since we beat everything except A9, 55 and 66. Problem is, he isnt too aggro.

      Edit: He isnt passive because he has high VPIP

      Given that this guy has decent postflop aggression (1.9AF for 43VPIP isn't that low) and has shown that he could make light shoves before, i don't think i'm folding that hand.

      If he felt like GS+bottompair was worth a turn shove before, who knows what he thinks he can shove for value there : naked T9 98 J9 Q9 K9 for trips, a lone top pair with some diamonds, A5/A6 for two pairs, 87 for a chop, even a busted flush draw to try and make you fold for all we know.

      There are so few hands we lose to, I'd call and make a note on his play, whether i get burned or not.

      Hope it helps.
