      Hello clandestineAl,

      Well, for the given odds it's really hard to fold there. Although the problem is that usually such bet sizes are rather for value than bluffs. Also if he wanted to bluff then he most likely would have bet it bigger. But overall for the information and the given odds shouldn't be that wrong.

      Best Regards.
