      *Typical Calling station, calls even 3rd pair 2 streets

      In the blinds villain open-calls VERY wide - about 40%

      Usually this OPP type doesn`t lead PSB with draws, small PPS`s. Also he might slowplay sets, so the only kind of hand he has here is a pair of kings.

      I think, it was a mistake to raise him here. I can take it slow and extract more value on the later streets. Also, I have a nut flush re-draw.
      1. Villain checks, HERO?
      I think, he would check his air hands, FD(maybe leads ~50% pot?), slow-played sets.
      So HERO=check. FD HU is not THAT likely, and I still would have about 70% equity against him.

      2. Villain c/r HERO.
      I think that would be shipping time for hero. His range is still very wide even with such a strong move.

      What would hand judge do?

      Hello dienaszaglis,

      That's kinda problematic but as long I see them sometimes even donking as well even with worse PPs or even flushdraws I might consider getting it in there. Although you did mention that he doesn't do that very often rather plays passively draws and weak pairs I might sometimes even find Call better there and reevaluate further streets. For example on such a turn I'd check behind and go for pot control and then likely bet the river for value.

      Best regards.
