      Hey Dracsharp,

      What do you expect villain to bet so big with on the flop/turn?

      IF we think we are ahead on the turn does the river change much?

      As played, the river indeed brings in a few draws but that would imply that villain was donking a backdoor flush (with or without the ace) or a 7x.

      My decision here would happen on the turn. I feel that if we call here we need to call the river. Otherwise we can just fold the turn and move on.

      Why do I say this? Because, based on how the hand played out so far we need to expect another bet (shove) by the river.

      Now, considering that villain is shorter (60 BB) if I like my hand on the turn I'd probably just shove and get the money in. Calling is better if we have any reason to believe that villain is bluffing and thus by calling we let him continue bluffing.
