      Opponent stats 15/6 AF:2,6 WTSD:33 W$SD:18 3bet:3 raise flop cbet:33(3/9) flop AF:3,5 after 298 hands.

      This was very hard spot for me. I called his minraise on the flop, because of his stats. On the turn I made my desicion that I'm not folding this hand, I think that on the turn he can still check/raise with his semi bluffs A7s, A4s and value hand AK. I really didn't think that he can have a lot of sets in his range, because it's very weird line by him.

      What do you think?

      mmm, stats seem to mislead. Is the 15/6 VPIP/PFR?

      If yes then this seems to make the posibility of weaker Ax/Kx and two pair combos rather unlikely from BB.
      Couple this with the line he took and it looks very likely he is gunna show a set here.

      Then you see the low W$SD and you second guess yourself and think top two must be good. (I would anyway)

      Tough spot bro.

      Ps - dont think that is an especially wierd line vs UTG open if he has flopped a set. A on Turn makes checking to you on the Turn a very viable option. Only 'wierd' thing is that he polarises his range so early.

      15/6 is VPIP/PFR.

      Hello TheWinnerTakesItAll,

      Yeah well, if you calling down in those spots then you are never folding the river. :P Though already on the flop I'd ask if our hand does very good. Especially if he is rather nitty + maybe passive we wont be seeing many Kx hands which raise for value but rather sets.

      Best Regards.
