      My play seems super weak but seeing hands after analyzing and reading comments from you guys I made this play.
      If I play always this way it wouldn't be ok but folding now and then is not so bad right?.

      I was thinking I can only hope to split but most likely he has AK or AJ or maybe A6. What's weird is this board is so dry that 2 pair combos are not that likely. And his play is weird. If he has set/ 2 pair ...would he play this way? Would he bluff with KK, QQ, I think not. Despite his line doesn't make sense I said to myself you have to fold this kind of hand from time to time.

      Why I like this hand is that today nobody played this kind of line only this guy. So I'm kind of proud of this fold:)

      Does anything change if we had AK?

      Hey yaxkukmian,

      As for the likelihood of 2 pair combos it really depends on how he is playing pre-flop. If he is playing very loose he can have any 2 pair combo.

      I don't think having AK changes much in this spot - because I don't think he's playing AK like this. More than likely his shove is for value and he has spiked 2pair or hit a set.

      If villain turns out to be wild and crazy, then obviously you can call. Without further info I'd fold to turn shove though.
