      I got a bit lost by the end of this one.

      Reasons I might have made a bad fold:
      He is unlikely to have the one missing A:spade: , and also he probably thinks I'm unlikely to have an A given that 2 of them are on the board. So it is possible that he is betting for value with a worse hand than mine and I made a bad fold.

      Reasons I might have made a good fold:
      He must have some kind of hand because he called my preflop raise, making Ax a bit more likely. He has called or bet on every street, showing strength. Also his bet sizing on river makes me very nervous. I guess in theory if I called the turn I should call the river because it is a blank, but his overbet just felt like he really had something.

      Which do you think?

      Thanks

      Hello member001,

      Turn: Check/Call is totally reasonable here since if you get raised you will be in ugly spot since you don't really know if going broke against such an opponent would be profitable since he could still have a better Ace.
      River: Check/Call is here also reasonable line but depending on the opponents bet as he did overshove there we just can't Call since it really screams for a better Ace, I wouldn't take the risk there to find it out if he hold a weaker hand or not, so likely Check/Folding is the best play against such a huge overshove.

      Best regards.
