      villain is 44/13/16 over a small sample.

      Hello conall88,

      Well, the problem is still that he is shipping the river. He practically is turning his hand into bluff. I really doubt that he would play this way a lot weaker mid-pairs. :( Also the 7 on river ain't the greatest card since he could easily even have it. I guess I'd make the crying fold. :( Unless you really expected the opponent to be such a play as you described although you didn't have that many reads.

      Best regards.
