      This was first orbit at the table so I dont have many stats, but villiain was on the fishier side (big gap between vpip and pfr).

      I was somehwere on the line if I should push it or fold it. Because I had the weakest made hand in my range i was more inclined to fold. What do you think?

      Hey,

      Why would you shove here? I mean you don't get much value from worse right? Why don't we call the Flop and probably flat the Turn as well and evaluate the river

      I do not like folding this hand if we are raising this hand preflop

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Shoving wasnt really an option, I shouldnt say that in OP. But calling down I think I would get in a tough spot, because by the river the pot would be big and there could be overcards coming.

      If he checks to me and plays check/call, I wouldnt mind valuebetting him, thats why I raise preflop.

      Let's say we call and turn comes a 5 (blank), he bets 2/3 again, what do we do ?
      River comes a T and he bets 1/2 again ($4 into $8 pot).
