      This hand REALLY bugged me all day.

      PokerStars - $0.10 NL ZOOM - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $10.00
      SB: $9.82
      BB: $10.65
      UTG: $10.25
      UTG+1: $32.72
      UTG+2: $10.54
      MP: $22.60
      MP+1: $9.58
      Hero (CO): $10.57

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has K:diamond: J:club:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, MP+1 calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.50, BTN calls $0.50, fold, fold, MP+1 calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.65, 3 players) J:heart: 2:diamond: 9:club:
      MP+1 checks, Hero bets $0.90, fold, MP+1 calls $0.90

      Villain is 44/0 over 9 hands with 2 AF. I bet large cause he's clearly fishy.

      Turn: ($3.45, 2 players) 4:spade:
      MP+1 checks, Hero bets $2.00, MP+1 calls $2.00

      Bet my top pair vs fish. Standard.

      River: ($7.45, 2 players) 4:heart:

      Insta-shoves river. Didn't make ANY sense except if he picked up two pair on the turn and a boat on the river. Or is a rare case he bluffs with QT here. Is this a correct fold most likely?

      MP+1 bets $6.18 and is all-in, fold

      MP+1 wins $7.11

      Hello FlashDavin,

      Guess vs such a person we could even call it down, wouldn't be surprised if we see even GSs there. But of course if you assume he is rather passive then folding is totally fine.

      Best Regards.
