      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      Hero (BTN): $50.44 (100.9 bb)
      SB: $128.53 (257.1 bb)
      BB: $118.03 (236.1 bb)
      UTG: $46.94 (93.9 bb)
      MP: $54.68 (109.4 bb)
      CO: $61.34 (122.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 5 5
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, SB folds, BB calls $1

      Flop: ($3.25) 6 7 3 (2 players)
      BB bets $1.50, Hero calls $1.50

      Turn: ($6.25) T (2 players)
      BB bets $3, Hero calls $3

      River: ($12.25) K (2 players)
      BB bets $6, Hero calls $6

      Anon table.

      BB was a huge fish, with a very high donkbet frequency (over 50% on a 100+ sample at the time, as I remember).
      I think it's a quite easy calldown against him. I have a pair+GS, and by the river his range is very polarized. He could spike the K sometimes, that's true, but if he started to donk with 6x/7x, he would never valuebet them on the river, and if he spiked T on the turn, that's also questionable, if he would vbet it on this river...
      So his range contains bluffs, plus "nuts" like 33/54/76/66/77/98/TT/Kx.
      What do you think?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Not a huge fan of this kind of call-down cause the guy could as well have hit some of the pairs there, you are calling down a board which has 4 overcards and he can have at least one of them and I wouldn't discard them cause he bets the river. River bet could easily be just a block-bet as well.

      Rather raise the flop instead of calling with such a mediocre hand and gain the initiative back on you, will be difficult to continue on the turn if he is rather aggressive player.

      Best Regards.
