      Hello qMantas,

      That's a difficult spot, the only hope here is to see 2pairs and that's it, cause I doubt that he is going to bluff in those spots so often. :( But now again what kind of strong made hands could he have there? JJ/QQ most likely are possible and maybe some backdoor draw like T:d9 or A:dT or whatsoever.

      So while we don't know that much about the opponent and either he is capable of bluffing or not, or maybe even over-valuing his 2pairs there will be hard to lay it down and I wouldn't say it's a huge mistake when you even Call. That's true that against known opponents and even passive ones we might even consider doing that.

      Best Regards.
