      Villain in 27/25/3.3 AF in 120 hands.

      Basically, what I am asking is, was it a mistake to only call river? On some of the spots I tend to see monsters under the bed. He had 8.25 left after his bet on the river. But I was somewhat scared of KK and JQ.

      Now I know I probably should have just shipped it, but does careful lines like this make sense sometimes?

      Hey,

      Cautios calls make sense quite often when oppoennt can rep quite a few value hands better than yours. Why do you just call flop though? His air folds quite often when you raise so you might be tempted to slowplay but against his good hands you miss so much value plus he bets so small, you never play for stacks. Furthermore, the hands he hit if you let him catchup won't go crazy imo. If he hits TP it connects too much with your range for him to put in more than one bet or 2 small-ish bets.
