      i guess you mean it as spewy-aggressive.

      still on such a board this line is rarely a bluff. and the only hand that didn't complete is AT...
      the problem is that he reps so narrow, QQ-KK are 2 combos due to card removal, but at the same time he reps these hands so hard with his line... maybe also A Q or something like that (one more combo lol)

      still i think we should prob just believe him here, unless his value range here is super wide and includes AA-AK, but i think he would cbet these

      bet bigger on flop and turn....if he wants to continue, he will do so, regardless of the bet size. You do not need to be balanced here either.

      As played...I would call...Fish love to bluff when draws complete, he is unlikely to JT, QJs and other suited hands will be unlikely to play the way they did. If he had more than a potsize bet left and would shove, I can see me folding. This way, I can not.

      which hands is he min3betting pre and taking this line with as a bluff?
      i mean, it's a fish, but still.

      any more info would be appreciated, "villain is aggressive" doesn't tell much. was he min3betting a lot, raising flops or suddenly making a lot of huge bets on the river

      we only played 20 hands so far and I don't remember the action then...

      But he did actually snap shove the river! so he's pretty much polarized between nuts and bluff

      Hello 13BlackCats,

      Doubt that you will see bluffs there that often, Q:cX also got there which could have been calling the flop and also of course JT. Rather fold it on the river instead.

      Best Regards.
