      Given other player being extremely loose + the small bet sizes, was I correct in calling with second pair?

      I just figured that with a 45% VPIP (and a WTS of 55%) he'd play just about anything, so i figured there was a fair chance that'd i'd be ahead.

      Hello rudders93,

      Boh, that's pretty marginal I'd say. But while he is pretty aggressive and for the given odds shouldn't be that huge problem even if you Call it down for the notes.

      But small tip, VPIP doesn't show how he plays in 3bet pot. :) Or raises, as you see PFR is only 11% which means that 3bet could even be smaller and he could as well play any kind of overpairs this way. Basically comes up to your reads how you saw him playing. Might even consider folding on river since there we just beat some bluff and that's all.

      Best regards.
