      Not 100% sure what to think on this hand, but I think it was an ok call in hindsight still.

      Villain is 52/24 over 21 hands, 22.2% 3bet (obv such a small sample, but was fishy)

      I don't see him just limp calling here and overbetting pot on flop with nuts. Maybe some kind of draw

      Turn only draw complete was 69, 9t, and i really don't think he's overshoving with that. So can we call profitably enough?

      Sure KJ beats, and so I guess otherwise he has 2pair combinations? But still...

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Add to full stack. :>

      Well, obviously his line doesn't make sense but there is still a chance him having even a stronger hand. There are couple of better Jx hands possible even which he might play this way.

      Would he really limp/call preflop and then start betting like this with pure air? Most likely the only hands what we beat are some draws. Therefore it was really based on the reads you had on him earlier to make such a Call.

      Best regards.
