      Villains-unknown. Is the call pre ok? Do you like donking the flop? What do you think of a c/r?Is it d/f? I dont't understand villain's shove on this brick turn. I believe he would raise 2pairs, sets, even straights on the flop for value and protection. Maybe he is turning his hand into a bluff. Not really sure what to think of it.

      Hello jozata,

      Preflop: Calling is fine as long it's a min-raise, though also squeezing is considerable.

      As played
      Postflop: Why would he turn his hand into bluff? :P He clearly doesn't achieve much with it and our line is also rather stronger. Nor I disagree about him shoving the flop with strong hands, he most likely is just trying to invite others along and maybe is even trapping.

      Only reason to Call the turn would be for me if I also assume he is rather bad player and could have enough of Kx hands which may ship. Cause any draw I expect this guy to rather call vs you.

      Best Regards.
