      Hi!

      Well hell never have a qx here, due to hid flop and turn betsizes. Fishes changes thier betsizes not to the actual size of the pot, but to thier hand strenght. So its either going to be a jx, Kx, 8x, or a 4x. There arent any 4x in his range so call is fine i guess

      Hello Sikac,

      Would highly depend on the opponent and the reads we had on him. Of course this is possible to call-down but now again his line is somewhat stronger here on the river. You just beat bluff. At some spot I might even prefer folding be safer if he is rather passive opponent but of course we can't say that we sometimes wont see there bluffs as well.

      Best Regards.
