      SB bets $11.29, Hero calls $11.29

      Sadly the hand is rather old so I don't recall that much about the opponent, but if I do remember correctly he indeed seemed to be pretty maniacal. Both preflop and postflop. I maybe even had seen him use big betsizings frequently

      I also was sort of not convinced about his hand strength because of his sizing on the turn – from his presumably wide 3Betting + likely wide cBetting range there are comparably/relatively few hands that can bet this big on the turn as well. Though the sample is still small + my memory might be off, so this read might not be of much relevance and might not be accurate.

      But with so much equity it should be difficult to fold the turn anyway, especially if we suspect villain to be spewy postflop, right? A blank river would be difficult though.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Practically you have to hope to get his whole stack on the river if you hit it. That's the rule for calling the turn. Clearly you ain't ahead there but rather going for implied odds.

      Best Regards.
