      need opinion on this hand. Villain is a fish, we played on the same table for a while, he is ready to shove on flush draw, top pair, middle pair, anything. This is the reason why I shoved on the turn.I took the chances because I had overpair+OESD.

      How is this situation best played usually? Should I just call the raise or show aggression?

      Hi Crixus,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: looks fine

      Turn: If villain is indeed ready to get the money in light our line is not terrible however after ck/call flop and donk/3-bet I can't expect him to have too much junk in his range.

      I'd say that he has at best for us pair+draw, 2p, straight, sets.

      So my preferred line would be to just call turn and play river. This way you also give him, a small chance, to bluff.
