      I think we have enough equity to call vs his range. Beside, someone with AF 5.5 like to bet when he think the board do not hit our range. I have no reason to fold this hand on the river.

      Hello Indahaus,

      Against that kind of opponent who is such a CBet maniac then I wouldn't really play it any differently and very likely even consider Calling it down on flop & turn.

      But really the river is just horrible bet size. Smells like a value-bet. :( But I don't think that I'd lay it down vs such an aggressor. While he might even bet this with missed draws/bluffs.

      Best regards.
