      What you think about River call?
      I think he shoves any set, two pairs, straights but why?
      Was this hand overplayed?

      Flop 2.10, Turn 5.25, River shove.

      He definitely plays JT like this imo. Now we need to think about sets.. and by sets I also mean could he turn or river that set.. If you assume JT, 77 and A7o, A8o, A9o play this way it's a call on pot odds but I haven't seen the overbet being sort of for thin value to get you to call AK only too often on NL25. Overall, I think it's close to a 0EV, slightly +EV spot given how your hand does against a few worse value hands and that there's the ocassional KJ spazz.

      I'm never thrilled about calling overbets donks like this when hands that make sense completed.
