      BB bets $1.00(All-In), Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.1.

      Opp's stats: VPIP 23/ PFR 4 / Agg Factor 1.8 / WTSD 33 - sample size 57

      At the river, I have narrowed down the possible range for villain:
      flush/sets/2pairs + his agg factor is low though, his WTSD is high. Therefore, I decided to fold. Would like to know what's the best play here.

      I'm no judge, but I do know NL5 RUSH, and I can say that unless something made me INCREDIBLY suspicious (Like someone checking the turn, and shoving the river when a draw got made) I would never fold AA here. You say flushes/sets/2-pair are his range, but I've seen fish stack off with nothing. His bet sizing seems to indicate he knows what he's doing, but top pair, QQ, and KK are definitely, DEFINITELY in his range. I'd be snap calling.

      I'll have to stop by and see what the judge thinks of this, but I can say that I'd be calling (And in Villain's shoes, I'd be betting exactly the way he did with QQ, KK, and top pair at NL5 Rush)

      Hello slashng,

      Your line doesn't make sense at all. What did it change on flop & turn what is now on river different that you fold? Basically at some spots I get it in even right on turn. But as played I'd Call the river as well since the board really didn't change and he can even have missed draws as well sometimes when he is somewhat aggressive player and of course a lot pair type of hands.

      Best regards.
