      He must have liked the flop so much that he wants to go broke after min-raising preflop.

      Hello sp00nman,

      Well, the problem here is that according his bet size on flop it might even be a trap. Usually people pick such a line as bet small on flop and then 3bet big with very strong made hands. Although the question is if he wouldn't play 2pairs the same way? Also even if he has straight here then we still have outs. So going for a go-broke here shouldn't be that big problem.

      But obviously mainly depends on the opponent how you saw him. Do you think he may even overplay 2pairs like this or even maybe TP?

      Best regards.

      Its good to know that we both had the same line in mind. I actually called hoping he had AT/AJ. He flipped KQ for the nuts and turn and river bricked. :)

      Don't forget to take a note. ;) It's often times the line of them to induce raises and then when they get a raise then they ship with strong hand like he had.
