      Villain is 24/20, AF 2.6, AFq F 44%, steal limped pot 46%(7). A loosing reg.
      -saw me 3b 88 from sb vs btn
      -setmines 44, in sqzed 5$ sqz pot
      -flats OR from CO ip, cls 2/3psb on 234cch, ch/b As T, I dnk R Kc small which induces him to 3x my river bet w 66

      Pre I sometimes limp these small pp when there is a fish infront of me limp/calling and is not folding enough to cbets on flop.

      Should I ever consider just calling flop here or is this played okay? I mean I would h8 life if another spade comes.

      Problem is that there just aren't worser hand combos that can shove there and I beat, maybe As5x and As8x ? Is he ever shoving like 58 or other twopair combos there?

      with 55/66 and higher pp-s I would personally prefer raising pf. You have ip, he would likely limp/call with worse hands and if you build pot you get paid more.

      Since BB lead out I think raising for value is fine. He has there all two pair combos (K8, 85, K5) that he may easily go with+ pair and draw type hands, like As5x. So raising flop and playing for stacks should be fine.

      Best regards,
