      Wondering what you thought of this.

      Villian's stats are 42/17/1.0 . I had already also taken a note on him saying he called top pair on the flop to showdown, and so I had either here put him on overcards, or a lower PP, but not hit a set. Because of this also the 9 on the river didn't really matter, because he would still have 2 pair, with no flush or straights.

      Would you have called this? In the long term is it -EV play, and one which I should stop? It wasn't a snap call, I just tried to weigh up all of the decisions. I think over time these sort of plays will be me greatly down in bankroll, but I'll listen to your advice.

      Thanks as always

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Yep, likely more often I would fold it on river to such a over-bet unless I have really good reads on him or some stats. Of course his play doesn't really make sense with his overbet and might even bluff there with some missed draws or whatsoever but can't really make the Call there while he is unknown to us. Would be good if you mention as well the hands sample size.

      Best regards.
