Bovada 10nl 6 max - Raised on the river

      This is from one of my last sessions on Bovada. I'm able to import the hands into HM2 now, but at the time I didn't have any stats on the guy, so my only read at the moment was that he was pretty fishy. Anyway, vs a fishy player, is this an obvious fold?

      Playing on Bovada, i know they will call with a lot of ridiculous hands. But when he raises me on the river, i wasn't sure what to do.

      The river raise screams for 45 and we never want to put more money knowing our opponent just made a hand.
      But I couldn't fold, because this seems like so unreal hand for anyone's range.

      without reads on his showdown hands, its a call for me. were only behind 45 and we beat everything else vs the fishe's range. and their range can be anything between TP to worse sets / busted draws.

      we bet two pair and lower sets. not an easy call but a call. no need to dissect really how the fish will play because they rarely makes sense

      1. Estimate what kind of hands Villain will raise on the river. ( KK, AA, 45, or maybe AK, 33, 66, 22 also? )

      2. Add % villan will bluff (too low IMO in this board)

      3. Is it +EV to call?

      According to pokerstove, you're tremendously ahead of his range even on the river. I don't think I'd be able to fold trip aces here in this situation so I would have called myself too.

      Depending on how aggressive our opponent is, we can discard KK and AA because he'll most likely have 3-bet you with these hands and it's unlikely he has AA because you got the other two. He either has a bottom/middle set, 2 pair, or a straight.

      You can beat 2 of these hands and you're getting pretty good pot odds for a call so yes I would call here.
