      iPoker - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      MP: $9.38
      Hero (CO): $10.47
      BTN: $18.85
      SB: $9.45
      BB: $10.15
      UTG: $10.01

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has Q:spade: Q:heart:

      fold, MP raises to $0.35, Hero raises to $1.05, fold, fold, fold, MP calls $0.70

      Flop: ($2.25, 2 players) 2:spade: 5:diamond: A:club:
      MP bets $8.33, Hero calls $8.33

      Turn: ($18.91, 2 players) 8:heart:

      River: ($18.91, 2 players) 7:heart:

      MP shows 4:diamond: 4:heart: (One Pair, Fours) (Pre 19%, Flop 24%, Turn 14%)
      Hero shows Q:spade: Q:heart: (One Pair, Queens) (Pre 81%, Flop 76%, Turn 86%)
      Hero wins $17.65

      It's just 8 hands, but he was playing 71/14, so obviously a fish.

      It felt really ugly to call here. But then again, why would he ever do this with a hand that has me beat? So I made a call, expecting to be ahead most of the time. I need around 44% equity to make the call here, so I figured he would have plenty of 'junk' hands (like pairs or maybe some random suited connectors, you never know with these guys) he might do this with.

      So, good call? Or is it better to fold?

      Hi Tino,

      Preflop: looks good but could make our 3-bet slightly larger since MP is probably a big fish.

      Flop: This is a toss up in my opinion. While his shove doesn't make any sense he will have Ax hands or strong hands some times. With that being said though I would personally not fold either but it's a gambly spot since we know nothing about him.
