      Villain stats are 14/9 0% 3bet, 67% fold to 3bet (2/3), 14% WTSD, 0% raise flop 69 hands

      Is he really making this play with many worse hands. I am pretty sure conventional thinking is "Meh. we have already invested so much we are probally getting priced in and maybe he has Kx or a strong draw." Does he really have these hands in his range for making this play. These types of draws usually play their draws passivly and IME this is almost always KT or TT. Am I overthinking it and we just have to get it in a chalk it up as a cooler if he has us beat or can we fold?

      he doesn't have KT in his range IMHO he wouldn't call dominated hand OOP ..

      the minc-r sucks of, however, I don't see a way to get out of this hand ... we blcok Ac which sucks too, but anyway, just get it in ... he's not even fullstack ...

      Hello i5bet72o,

      Tough to fold in those spots here, especially when he ain't even a fully stacked. Most likely I wouldn't be able to do that either and just ship it.

      Only thing what I have realized from my experience and seen so far that the min-raise is so damn often a strong hand. :D But we can't really fold here for the given odds.

      Best Regards.
