      Total pot: $4.42 | Rake: $0.18

      Villain is 24/3 on 39 hands with 9.00 AF. 0/3 f2cbet and 2/3rds raise cbet.

      A big problem here is villains low PFR but apparently his 3bet is 7.7 and 2/5 from the blinds so I'm being hasty with a guess I can treat this situation better.

      I categorise his flopraise as being, very very rarely 7x, even more rarely 33 and apart from that, slowplayed AA or a bluff. I decide to just call down and the board couldn't have run out much better for me.

      In other words I didn't buy his story one bit and went for a calldown for max value, raising just makes his bluffs fold right?

      Well, you get the implied odds to call, you could get 0,4$ if you hit.

      I'd fold here, we'd neet to get +2$ even if we hit on the river.

      Maybe im being too mathematical here? :f_confused:

      You're assuming villain has a hand Imimba. I think we're normally good unless villain has turned a small pocket into a bluff or 43o or something.

      Hello DaPhunk,

      Doubt that it's going to be a good idea in first place to CB if you assume him capable of Check/Raising loose. Such boards are most likely going to be a Check/Raise from him cause you can't hit much here.

      His raise of course doesn't make sense but you can't exclude PPs which could also play this way. But if you Call the flop then it didn't change much on the turn and nor the river which means you kind of have to Call down and stick to your plan. Can't see an aggressive opponent just Check/Folding turn.

      Best Regards.
