      Not sure about this one.

      Villian 29/21/1.7 agg

      After pairing turn, I'd rather just call it than iso against a stronger hand, although only things beating me is a 3, or set of 7's

      He's obviously block betting on the river, but I dunno whether to raise it, or just call it. Do I lose value calling, or do I save by not isolating against a stronger hand?

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      It's actually pretty close in between raising or Calling. Of course his line just doesn't make sense and most likely seems to be rather a block-bet with some Kx hand and wouldn't even be surprised. But as well he might even just try to trap this way. Therefore not knowing the opponent overall play is Calling there totally fine, we can't be sure that he is playing his TP that loose and even capable of Calling the river light.

      Best regards.
