      I thought some AQ/AK or even the rare case of a busted draw could have done this on river, but well veeeeeeeeeeeeeery rarely in all cases.
      I shouldn't have called right?

      Hey AtrociousNightmare,

      Preflop/Flop/Turn all look fine to me. You have a decent made hand and you want to extract value.

      I agree with what you are saying about villain rarely bluffing in this spot. Just looking at this VPIP/PFR indicates that he's not exactly a strong thinking opponent. His PFR of 2 suggests he may be passive in other situations and is not likely to jam the river with busted draws.

      Bet/Fold river is good.
