      I used to play continue with many marginal hands when my opponent's aggression didn't make much sense, but I have begun folding almost all of these spots till i better my hand reading since I think I was losing money in these situations overall. In the process though I seem to be getting on the opposite side of this (nit), and this hand is a perfect example.
      The flop is dry as *** he's repping 9 combos and he's 31/3 with 5.5AF. Due to the small sample size I preferred the VP/PR which indicates passiveness and folded. If I called the flop, how many streets should I call should he keep bettin in me provided turn and river are bricks? Also, would this change if there was a flush draw OTF? Sorry for the long post and thanks!

      Hello chgentso,

      It's pretty dry so you can still even continue here. But I wouldn't say it's wrong to give up a hand here if you don't feel secure playing for the stacks. His range could also be pretty strong and those loose players tend not to raise with just Ax hands. So I don't mind your play for conclusion to avoid mistakes. :) Tend to think that we are ending up vs rather strong range here, not that many draws even possible which he could be bluffing.

      Best Regards.
