      This was such a strange hand, IDk if I can really fold here cause him having a two in his hand just seems so unlikely to me. But there isn't really any other hand he could play this way here. Just a strange hand.

      Hello ExMagnusxL,

      One option would be to Check/Call there on turn but as you bet there then shoving should be fine. Since he may as well sometime hold there something like 2pair, maybe even just Ax which tried to draw for flush or whatever.

      Best regards.
