      Opponent's stats: VP/PFR/AF/WTS/hands 32/21/1.2/18/57

      My play looks somewhat weak but such an opponent suddenly taking the initiative on such a turn card with such bet size makes me worried. Would he really play ch/c flop, donk turn with a worse made hand for protection (apart from JJ, QQ, but even that is questionable given his AF)? Would he float OOP? It does not seem likely to me. It looks like a ridiculous play but I think it should be ok.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Whatever he has I wouldn't play it any differently. We didn't invest much into the pot and therefore good fold! Well played! Especially vs loose-passive opponent.

      Best Regards.
