      River: ($38.25) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $24.75 and is all-in, Hero folds


      Villain is 39/10/15 over 40 hands, AF=0.4. Fold on flop 33, fold on turn 100.
      Strange stats, very high 3bet and very low AF. Not big sample though. Easier to think he got some cards preflop. AF may be more acurate given the fact that he played almost half of the hands he got dealt.

      I really hate those guys who min bet flops like that... So I decide to raise this one with pair + backdoor. I have the small sample of him folding turns so I fire another bet. Maybe he can even fold a weak A. On the river I really expected it to go check-check if he missed hearts. He won't bet just the Q :heart: if he had it. Don't expect him to value bet just an A and don't expect him to bluff missed draw given his AF, so I can hope for a showdown at least. I can't really bluff him of an A, don't think these guys are ever folding an A after calling 2 streets.

      What the hell do you think he had? I get so tilted when fish minbet-reraise, but what about this guy's line?

      Hello circoflax,

      Why not just Call vs the min-bet? And then donk the turn and protect your hand. :) You are making just a lot worse fold there and never know if they are capable of trapping or not.

      Best Regards.
