      Hello RazDirk,

      Doubt that the guy is going to shove like that with any 2pairs cause if he had anything stronger he would have came out earlier. So I'd fold on the river cause there we don't really beat much, unless you would assume he is playing Ax this way.

      Best Regards.

      TY veriz, I always get confused with +EV calls & -EV folds.

      Could you explain this a little more Veriz? Something is missing for me. Just because the flush completes, why can't he bet? Maybe he doesn't want us to check behind.
      That's just a guess, what do you think overall.

      What should I think? :) What kind of hand shoves like that on the river after our strong line? Gimme his range.
