      i would say stats would make this situation much easier, because without stats, we need to be very afraid of a player who is raising large from utg1.
      however that said, i don't think there is much you can do in this situation.
      maybe if his turn raise was alot smaller, say something like half pot, but he has probably increased the size of his raise to end the pot here an now, as there is a potential flush draw on the board.
      in this situation, it seems like you made the right play, if you had stats saying he was on tilt or a maniac or playing very LAG then other plays could be made maybe, but i don't really see you beating much of his range in this situation, better to just wait for a better spot versus a worse player.

      Hello MisClick,

      Not much you could have done there, of course his play doesn't make sense but we can't Call it either and hero-play. Rather leave it alone on the turn.

      Best Regards.
