      Other guy is a nit.

      Kinda spot where I got lost already was on turn. Should I even bet here vs their combined range which is pp most of the time. When I see a board like this I kinda automatically think I am beat.

      In the back of my head I had an image from the villain which was that he is very aggro esp ip. When I check T this is a good spot for him to take a stab as nit behind him will fold a lot.

      On river I called bcs of three arguments. Overbet shove is just wierd if he has FH and well 5 is kinda very good card for me as it removes one possible set + his AFq on R is just skyhigh even for a smaller sample.

      I kinda dunno if I should widen his range because we are deep and well some players just call every crap justifying it on implieds.

      Hello Gregor86,

      I wouldn't exclude FH from his range just cause he shoved like that. I would most likely also shove the river if I see the other guy being capable of calling with a lot worse. Or either if not then of course I would make a solid Bet for value from weaker PPs.

      So practically it was mainly towards the opponent and how we saw him playing, or either how we were playing against him, what kind of early dynamics we had. Could he be tilting and etc. Cause what kind of bluffs he could have there? Practically just some PPs/pairs which are turned into bluff but if he has a pair why doesn't he just take a showdown? :)

      Best Regards.
