      Villain is a 21/18 reg. What would be a realistic range to give him?

      Hey Deomedes,

      Villain may appear to be a regular, but he's usually not a great player when he takes this line.

      If we give him purely a value range -----> AT,9T,KQ,KJ,JQ,JJ,QQ,KK it's an easy fold I guess.

      There is a decent chance he doesn't play strong hands this way. He'd probably bet a normal size with AT,9T,sets unless he was trying to level you. Possibly a more realistic range would be KQ/JQ/KJ/AA that wants to protect. Against this range you have a clear call.

      Seeing as we can't know for certain what an unknown villain is doing, you need to use history to work this out. I.e does villain have any reason to be tilted? Have you seen him do anything crazy in the past? If your answer is no, I guess it's fine to just muck the hand.

      No reason to be tilted as far as i know on that particular table and he hasn't done anything like that before. So, fold was ok
