      I suppose we call one street on the flop anyways, when the reg-ish guy c-bets. The fish will so often play fit-or-fold here that it is ok to play this like HU pot IMO. So....

      Turn: I don't think it is a good idea to lead out here, because we still don't know what the fish is holding. The only hands i would count PP 8-5. I think that even him could be folding some A-highs here, but maybe i'm mistaken. The reg could also have those PP and some A-high hands.

      River: I was thinking for some time before i made the call there. I think it's pretty close here. He could bet 88,77,66 and also still those A-high hands after the checkdown on turn. And i didn't saw JJ+ here. So i called to catch A-high bluffs and those lower pockets. I was completely ignoring the fact that the fish was left to act. And suddenly the monkey comes over us. It's obvious that he's got a monster ofc. But i am much more interested bout my call against the reg. Could we be doing this or is it a slight -EV decision?

      Hello Pichux,

      Since the opponent is pretty aggressive then I think he could easily pick such line also with bluff on river in hope that we fold our smaller PPs, therefore I don't mind Calling there on river but against that minraise it's an easily fold.

      Best regards.
