      Hello Huseens,

      But he isn't coming out here with pure air hands. :D Cause he will only have value hands here mainly. No way he has bluffs, aggression doesn't have much to do with the case here.

      Often times when people picking such a line as min-bet/3bet as he did is more often going to be a trap. As long it's also a ZOOM table it's even more realistic him to have a set more often than weaker hands. Doubt that the guy would play 89 this way, so maybe at the best left K8, but does he even have many of them? Which means I might even be towards folding the hand unless he is super loose and bad.

      Best Regards.
