      The way he played it doesn't really make sense. No hand fits into his line, apart from AcXc or 7X.
      It made me think of a fishy Reg who has "no legitimate hand raises on a paired board" stuck in his head and he tries to claim the pot with overcards.

      Thoughts? Thanks.

      if you think he's on overcards why not get it in on flop?

      anyway without reads i wouldn't take him lightly (UTG+1!), QQ+ A:sK (which flips with you) imo

      Hello inlovewithamsterdam,

      Well, what's the idea behind raising the flop? If you want to protect from overcards then just get it in right on flop. There is no point to Call the flop while it wont change much on turn anyways for us. We are just keeping bluffs in while we actually should protect our hand as if you went for a raise. If you want to take passive line then rather just Call and reevaluate further streets.

      Oh and by the way it's not UTG+1 it's still MP. :D

      Best Regards.
