      Villian should be quite polarized on this river he either has 55 or 33. It's such a ugly spot cause he reps so few hands what should we do? Villian stats is 32/29 over 20 hands what is no sample.

      Hi Saren,

      Against unknown I think it's a fold. He reps A3s (1 combo at most), 33, 55. And most players at these limits don't turn Kx into a bluff here or raise thin with AQ.

      So unfortunately I'd say we have to fold (we get 25% pot odds so he still needs to bluff 3/10 hands for us to show a profit).

      Is this a standard play for A3s? := Cause I was really suprised when he showed up with it, I had ahh yeah ok moment. Yeah I do agree with the argument for folding.

      I wouldn't call it standard but players in these spots call any PP on that flop and A3 is very similar to 44-55 so it's possible in their range.
