      Hi Sikac,

      That's interesting. Unfortunately the opponent is rather unknown so I might chose the "safe route" and just call as well.

      The thing is (my reasoning): what hands do you expect can *happily* call your river shove? I'd say QT and that's about it, since all draws hit.

      Below QT, we're left with KJ, JJ and 22 - and at least the two later would have check/raised that flop.

      Other than that... what could call besides a flush? And there are not even many flushes below yours... the T, Q, K and A are all out there and for him to have a lower flush than yours he'd have to play things like 54s.

      I don't know. I don't even think it's that close really, I don't think we have much value there to shove. Yes, I do see people calling there all day long with KJ on these limits, but I wouldn't just assume I have a value shove before I know the villain is one of those people. So far he's been aggressive, so I'd expect him to be aggressive on the flop with hands that could call our river shove that we beat.
