      Though I only had 55 hands on villain, he was playing 44/31 and knew only two actions post flop: bet and raise. I hadn't seen him go to showdown with anything yet, but folding, checking or calling didn't seem to exist in his dictionary.

      Especially against the min bets, I decided to call down. Sometimes when fish take the line of minbet, minbet, bet big they have a pretty good hand. With this guy I seriously had my doubts, and figured he could even have complete air here (it wasn't the first time he took this line).

      Hi Tino,

      Considering your reads I don't mind calling down (especially with these bets) however what's your plan on most rivers? Let's say high card A, Q or flush completing?

      We could raise the turn for super thin value/protection versus draws. He won't fold a 7x or Kx but we may actually get him to check to us on the river (if he calls) and then we can take a free showdown. If I raise I make it 5x-6x.

      Against this guy I would probably still call if an A or Q would hit. I might consider folding if the flush hit that would put another overcard to my pair, but I would probably call it down anyway. Like I said, he's just betting all the time, seemingly regardless of what he has, so I think he would be pretty capable of just betting complete air even if the flush completes.

      Obviously it wouldn't be a great spot, but unless he makes an insanely large bet, I think I just have to call. Sometimes he's actually going to have a hand. And if so, so be it.

      That's probably what I would do.
