      villain unknown - one stats about him: c/c 623Q board and c-c blank river
      35 hands/ 51/ 14/ 38 wtsd/ 33 w$sd/ 40 fold to cbet

      Yesterday I read turn play and today river play so here's the "homework" hand.

      I can't get 3 streets of value so I decide to check behind turn to induce river bluff. When he shoves I was like "cmon man what the f are u doing"! My justification for calling him: he might have TT-QQ, or some busted :diamond: FD. How often does he have A or 6 here? His line is not logical but his range becomes very polarized when he shoves river.

      If he bet 1/2 pot I would snap called him.

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      Well, I doubt that he will come up with Ax that often. So it's towards the nuts or just a pure bluff. But the question is rather if he is even capable of bluffing here? What's his overall image? What kind of hand did he c/c there passively? Did you see the showdown? We can't remove 6x from his range anyways here, that's the problem and he might even have there 6x and obviously 33/99.

      But of course sometimes even fishes play Ax hand as shove there, something like A:dX (overplaying TP).

      Best Regards.
