      Villian had been taking very aggressive line & shown a few bluffs before this hand.

      Hand range wide given 66% VPIP.

      Felt calling down was the best line given the situation.

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Without reads I am not a huge fan of those call-downs. If you really expect him to bluff here in this kind of case and even into multiway pot then sure why not to make such a hero-call. But without knowing the opponent I'd be very inclined even to make a laydown on turn.

      If you Called the turn then there is not much to add than Call also the river while it didn't change much.

      Best regards.

      Villian had bet pot sized in 100% of situations when no-one had bet ahead of him post-flop. Sample not huge, but seen him do it about 5-10 times in a row before this hand, his cards didn't seem to matter, pretty much any two cards (VPIP was 90%+ when this hand was played).

      Then shouldn't be that huge problem to Call it down. Hopefully he did it earlier as well against multiway pot.
