      This was screaming fold at the time but I still called, I know villain could do this with worse (TP/overpair/lower set) as he can be quite spewy (seen him make some really weird plays like 4bet > all in preflop with 47s and hitting a straight), but for the most part this was saying "JQ",
      vs what he could have here I have 69% equity on the turn.

      The fact he just donked all in on the turn made this more difficult for me, although I think it should have made it easier.

      Hello,

      Preflop calling is fine.

      On the flop I prefer making it like $1.6.

      As played, when he shoves the turn it sucks, but since you saw him he's spewy and think could have worse I think calling is fine. Also, even if he has the straight we still have 10 outs to improve, right?

      Best,
      Plamen

      There's not a lot of worse hands he could have here but I know there are some, what would it take for this to be folded, a strong/solid read?

      (I have 3k hands on him and quite a few notes, he plays fairly solid but overplays hands sometimes and does make some rash decisions)

      I can't see myself escaping this hand unless maybe we're on the river, and like you say I can still hit one of my outs on after the turn.

      Yeah, we have to think that he has only straight here to make a fold, but he could end up having two pair or so.

      Overall I don't think you played this bad.
