      Well, villain is really interesting player. When he has a hand, he just shoves all in, but I think it's enough for him to have TP for all in. If he has got nothing, he checks and folds to a raise. And there are situations in which she minraises or just calls.

      Preflop: I should have raised. I know.
      Flop: I should have reraised? Yes, maybe. But if I do this, I think he would instanstly 4-bet me and I don't think I would call against him.
      Turn: I hit two pair and villain shoves. What to do here? Call? I think it is very likely of him having 10-8 or Q10, but he also could have Kx or Jx cards in his range.

      Thanks in advance for answers.

      Hello LuckyDimes,

      Preflop: If you want to play such hand at all then rather isolate and therefore raise it up.

      As played
      Postflop: Against such an overbet I'd just fold it right on flop, otherwise fold it on turn. He will very often have you beat there. Not really worth gambling unless we know the opponent better.

      Best regards.
